2017 Ford E450 6.8L oil change

Sounds correct to me, it's a Ford Modular engine and part of the 5.4/4.6 SOHC V8 family with two more cylinders.

That is how much our 2017 E-450 chassis used. Then another partial quart to get it correct on the dipstick. Also use the oil viscosity on the oil filler cap as the book may list a couple options. My local Ford dealer made sure to tell me about that one...

Yup thats what mine takes. After adding a 5 quart jug and 1 single the dipstick is right where it should be.
If your doing it yourself walmart has the Motorcraft oil and filter, about $30 for 6 quarts and a filter.

Just an idea, I punch a hole in the bottom of the filter after the pan drains, makes less of a mess then removing a vertical filter when full.

Just make sure you can remove the filter before you do that. Some are tightened by arm wrestlers.

Thanks all. Just changed the oil. Took about 20 minutes with drain time. Mobile 1 5W30 synthetic - 6 qts did it. Bought all, including the mobile 1 filter at walmart. Expected it to be a lot more to it, but with hydraulic Jack's down and stands in place, it was really accessible. Thanks again.

Just curious if you checked the level in your auto leveler reservoir while you were under there. I add that to my list when I change the oil and grease the front end.

Looks like Mobil 1 is cheaper at Wal-Mart than it is at Amazon right now. Mine is not due until Sept. but changed the oil and air filter in the generator today.

No, I didn't check it but I could see the tank farther back and it appeared about half full with Jack's down. The tank was see thru. I'll check it soon though. Leaving on 2-week trip in mid June so got lots if "checking" to do.
