Oil filter was around 15 buck, I got the oil at AutoZone for 12.99 a gallon X 4 (on sale).

Dealer likes to under price the one up the freeway (they charge $75) for the same service.
I will go back at that price and convenience, the coffee is free and good tasting.

At the right time I will take mine in for service and test out a new 2015 F350.

Sounds odd to me. Doesn't add up! Like you said your $15 on a filter plus $52 (13x4) for oil. That's 67 bucks and there providing all this and labor and disposal of old oil all for $45 buckaroos. I'd be worried what there actually doing or what your actually getting for this. I also have a powerstroke 6.4 like I see in your sig and I only run oem filters and motorcraft oil due to the fact that this motor is so picky. I do hope your not screwing yourself in the long run!

Adding a Fumoto Valve to replace the drain plug on the Ford V-10 allows you to drain the oil into a jug without spilling a drop. The Fumoto Valves are a locking ball valve that are considered OEM by several engine manufacturers. Get the version with a hose barb for attaching a short hose when draining. The Ford V-10 uses Fumoto part # F-106 or F-106N for the version with a hose barb.

My convenience is worth a bunch, in this case 45 bucks and I do not need to get dirty.

Ya the 6.4 is a filter hog, air fuel and oil all need to be changed religiously.

BTW it is a Ford dealer and I have the receipt if something goes wrong.

I'd rather pay that in and out rather than pay that much doing it myself and then cleaning up the mess after I am done and then get rid of the old oil (15 quarts).

I like doing the work have for decades but sometime it is better to let someone else do the work.
45 bucks for 15 quarts and a filter? Now, that's a heck of a deal. If I can find something like that around here I will definitely have them do it. Not sure what kind of rig you have that takes 15 quarts. I think our V10 only holds 7 quarts. Motorcraft 5w20 is 27 bucks for 7 quarts. Are they using good oil on your rig?

Edited - Sorry Ford Idaho, I just realized you have a diesel truck. Was thinking in the V10 Class A mindset since that's what the OP's thread was about.

I'd have to look to see how complicated is getting to the filler tube. I have a hand pump that I've used to fill up differentials, but it will take many pumps to get 7 quarts in there.

It is a 6.4 as in my sig.
Ford calls for 15qt, feel free to look it up if you doubt me.

Just turned 65 this week and been wrenching professionally for 40 years.
I am pretty much on top of the motor oil specs. In our state fleet we are in line with all the newer specs but for my own high mileage units it's 10-40 for me.
10w40 doesnt meet any new car api specs.
10w40 is old school oil.
Just because it works for you doesn't mean its right.
sorry we'll agree to disagree.

No doubt, I'm sure diesels take a lot more oil than gassers. Was confused because the thread was about the Ford V10 and thought that's what you were talking about. Nevertheless, you are getting a great deal for 15 quarts of oil, a filter, and labor for 45 bucks. IIRC, I paid more than that for the oil change on my Ram 1500 Hemi.

Some tips for doing your own oil change
And as I posted before the dealer I am going to is trying (very well I might add) to under cut another dealer.

Gotta love a price war.

Did you even read a threat LOL

The filter (MC FL820S) for the V10 costs about $4. The 5w20 Motorcraft oil is $17.95 for a large jug at WallMart.
