just a note I used 15 40 for 2 years and went back to 10 30 and the temps run a lot cooler
One thing you really want to do religiously is to drain the water out of the fuel water separator every 30 days (it's close to the middle of the trucks underbelly), fuel filters (there are 2) are changed every 22,500 miles, DEF is cheaper at the truck stops than it is at Walmart, it's usually $15 for a 2.5 gallon bottle or $2.79 a gallon at the pump. You don't have to use the Ford branded DEF, and the only way Ford can mandate you use their brand for warranty purposes is if they give it to you free of charge (which we all know will never happen).Thanks everyone for the info. Jus't wanted to make sure since I have never had a diesel with all these emission systems on it. On my 99 7.3 it doesn't start looking dirty till it's almost time to change at 5K. Really like this 6.7 so far. Jus't hope it gives me the service my 7.3 has done, it has 445K on it now and still running strong.
No, as you will starve the motor of oil due to the low flow thru the filter.Is it possible to run one of these Amsoil 2micron filters instead of the regular oil filter on the engine ?
I know amzoil makes a regular filer to spin on also, I use a normal motorcraft filer and the bypass filter, it was black for a couple of changes but then got to the point of looking almost new
It’s dirty been crappy weather 😂Mine is a single filter mounts under the passenger side door on the frame a spin on body goes on your normal filter mount with your normal filter spins on to that. A hose runs from the spin on body to the bypass filter and from there back up to your oil fill with a new cap that allows the oil to recirculate. I will take a picture for you a later this afternoon
Sadly no, the Amsoil full flow filters filter down to 20 microns, if you want to get down to 2 microns you'll have to buy the dual remote bypass oil filter system.Is it possible to run one of these Amsoil 2micron filters instead of the regular oil filter on the engine ?
The filter system I'm talking about is mounted away from the engine, the vehicle frame is usually where it's mounted. It has an adapter that connects to where the oil filter is installed on the engine, 2 hoses are connected to the adapter (oil in and oil out), those hoses are connected to the remote filter housing, two oil filters are mounted on the remote filter housing, the first filter is a full flow filter (95% of the oil runs through it) and the second filter is a bypass filter because only 5% of the oil goes through it and it is a 2 micron filter.Not sure I understand what a "bypass" filter does. What is it that you're bypassing?
