Cool thanks. So did you disconnect the fuel line on top of the fuel tank or not? Did you open the gas cap instead?

You do not have to disconnect the fuel line from on top of the tank or open the gas cap. Just let it drain for till it is finished and then change it.

I have owned both dodgeís and fordís and have never opened the gas cap or removed the fuel line from the top of the tank.

Thanks for the reply. I'm glad I do not have to remove the fuel line.

I have a non related question concerning the condition of your oil at changes. Does the oil seem excessively black? I have that problem with my 2017 F-350 6.7L What say you?

That is normal with diesel trucks. The oil is catching the soot. Just be sure to use quality oil.

Another slightly unrelated question here ( sorry if I'm hi jacking ) , does anybody know why there are 2 different fuel pumps ( HFCM )
between early (11 -15) and late ( 15 1/2 - 17 and up ) . They look similar but have different part and code numbers .

Sorry guys , it figures , in the next thread I found my answer . Please disregard this post .

I was on the road once in a pretty rural area of North Dakota. Change Oil light came on and stopped at the nearest Ford dealership and asked for an oil change. They said they were booked for 4 days and would schedule me. That wasn't going to work, 4 days from then I would be 1400 miles away.

So I went into WalMart and bought the oil/filters and they offered to change my oil for smaill fee. Being that it was -25į outside. I took them up on the offer.

They changed the oil and brought me my keys. I asked them about the unused OIL ( I had bought Four 1 gallon jugs) and they said they had used it all. I pointed out that the 6.7L only needs 13 quarts - Not 15

So they promptly pulled my truck back inside and invited me in to watch them drain it and refill the oil.

The new oil had been in my truck just long enough to pull out of the bay and sit idling while I was paying the bill and then brought back inside. It was BLACK. I learned from this experience that even new oil turns black as soon as it circulates through the engine. Too much soot.

So Yes your oil will always appear very black and stain any clothes it gets on
