Find your owners manual here:
Owner Manuals | fleet.ford.com

Then turn to page 115 of your hymnal and find that it is 7.0 Quarts. (6.6L) of 5W-20 Motorcraft Oil. Synthetic is not specified.

I use a drill pump to get the oil in quickly and neatly.

What is the actual torque spec for the drain plug? Not rule of thumb. I previously found one, but no way is it correct it was too high.

Here is the chart I use:
http://hollonoil.com/OCH/Engine%20Oi..._1995-2014.pdf
Note: It only goes up to 2011 for the V-10 and it does not specify 20 or 30 valve.

Translation: 10ft lbs or 14 Newton Meters or 110 lb/in
or seat the plug then 1/4 turn.
Overhead question: Does it not depend on what type, if any, gasket you are using?

Wouldn't 10 ft/lb be 120 in/lb?

I used rounded numbers to represent the average in a range of torque values. It was not meant to be an exact or a lesson in conversion. or is that just your way of saying thanks?

Thanks for the chart, but I was teasing you on the simple math mistake.
