Should be printed right on the fill cap. Probably 5W20.

If you mean brand, most oil in a new engine is a "break in" oil, so trying to keep the same oil brand or type is unnecessary.

Use a good quality non-asphalt based oil that meets the grade and weight requirements for the engine. These requirements will be in your chassis manual.

For the best protection, go with a full or blended synthetic oil.

Motorcraft 5W20 , you need about 6.5 qts. Oil filter is Motorcraft FL-820S. That's what Ford would use if you took it to the dealer, as Motorcraft is Fords brand/spec.

All this can be found at your local Wal-Mart for about the same cost as your favorite case of brew... Pick up both and make an evening of it!

Yes that's a blended synthetic oil. You can spend even more on a full sun. But it's not necessary. If you DIY be careful of the small cooler between block and filter, easily damaged if twisted.

OK, I just changed my oil in my 2013 E-450 V-10 and have no clue of what you mean about the cooler between the block and the filter. Ca you be more specific on what you were talking about being careful around? Also, I found the oil filter to be VERY difficult to remove on my first oil change. It was on way too tight.

I had both V-10 engines, 3 valve and 2 valve heads, apparently the 2 valve engines don't have the cooler, 3 valve do. Quite a surprise when I went under there and discovered that light duty, easily damaged cooler. The 3 valves are used on the F-53 chassis. Thought Ford would have changed across the board but I suppose not. Sorry for the bum steer.

Our 2010 E450 V10 2 valve has an engine oil cooler.

My '07 two valve has the oil cooler also. The first oil change I did I was poking around and found that the oil lines were rubbing, where I don't remember, but some split tube duct that I had around solved it. Might check yours as long as you are under there.
