    They said one jug like $14.95, oil alone was $146 and change. I go to dealer because I recntly heard a horror story. My friend knows a guy who has the same truck. Guys turbos went bad and he had no proof of oil changes / receipts. Claimed he had his local gas station do it. Ford denied warranty! $11,000 bucks damage. Now of course there maybe more to the story, but I am going to the dealer.

    So the oil change light comes on and off I go to the dealership where they have my rocords in their computer. Scary!

    You better double check the capacity on that. If I remember right its 13 quarts. I read on forums some dealers are screwing it up cuz all previous ford diesels were 15 quarts.

    I will dig and find the receipt it's here somewhere... I could be wrong, but I know it wasn't that high or I would have pitched a fit over it

    I just googled it and found some pages saying it 13 quarts, I think my receipt said 3 (i think they are in jugs) at $46 and change per unit. ( Dont have recipt handy right now to be exact. ) The total was $234 and change

    Ill post exact prices later. but total is correct

    Holy crap! I just the 6.0 L done a bit ago and the tech said Ford now says every 3k miles.....I don't think so. I was only charged 99.99 + tax but I'm not paying that every 3 months or 3k.

    They told me every 5000 miles, but said the truck computer should be at 7500 miles. I dont know if the computer has a sensor as far as mileage and or idle running hours or its just a mileage timer. That tell you when to change it.

    I had the dealer throw in 4 free oil changes with def top offs when I bought mine because of all the stuff that went wrong when I ordered it.

    yes expensive but it isn't anymore than the 6.4 except for the def fluid. the 6.7 holds less oil so its probably cheaper than the 6.4. Anything done at the dealer is expensive. Not really sure Ford could void the warranty because you change your own oil.

    The jug's they use are 5 quart jugs as far as I know, better make sure it doesn't have 2 extra quarts in it unless someone was paying attention.

    Just had the oil changed in my 2012 6.7 last week - 90.00. Def costs about 12.00 for 2.5 gallons. I think I would try a different dealer for the next oil change. Also run it til the truck's computer tells you to change it (aprox 7500 mi).

    The computer in the 6.7 measures the amount of carbon in the oil so depending on how hard you work the engine you could get anywhere from 5,000-7,500 miles per oil change

    Our Mechanics at work write the oil capacity right on the underside of the hood in marker.
    We have 2 different diesels and 3 different gas engines in the fleet. This way they know at a glance how much it takes. I do that with the 5 vehicles I have. Being fleet manager it tells me at a glance the DANG MALIBU takes 4.7 qts. I always have .3 qts of oil around!

    You have to change your oil???:confused::confused: I thought the new trend was to drive a vehicle until it breaks, then figure out why it broke:laughing:
