background
Ford’s 6.7-liter Powerstroke engine has an oil capacity of 15 quarts. This is how much oil you’ll need to perform a routine oil and filter change.
  • Current production Ford 6.7 Powerstroke engines require 15 quarts of SAE 10W-30 Super Duty Diesel Motor Oil to function properly.
  • Older 6.7 Powerstrokes require anywhere from 7 to 13 quarts depending on the model year.
  • Regular oil changes and basic maintenance will help extend your truck’s longevity.

Ford 6.7 Powerstroke engine oil capacity

The 2022 Ford 6.7 Powerstroke’s oil capacity is 15 quarts. Older model 6.7 engines have different oil capacities, for example:
  • 2011: 13 quarts
  • 2017: 7 quarts
  • 2018: 13 quarts
  • 2020: 13 quarts
Take care to avoid mixing up your engine’s oil capacity—the amount of oil needed for an oil change—with its
engine displacement
, or how much volume (6.7 liters) the engine’s cylinders take up.
When in doubt: Check your car owner’s manual to ensure you put the correct amount of oil in your Ford 6.7 Powerstroke engine, check your owner’s manual.

Ford 6.7 Powerstroke engine oil type

Ford recommends using
Motorcraft SAE 10W-30 Super Duty Diesel Motor Oil
for the 2022 6.7-liter Powerstroke engine.
Like the 6.7 Powerstroke’s oil capacity, the recommended oil type and viscosity can change by model year. These are Ford’s recommendations for the truck model years referenced above:
You can use other brands of motor oil, so long as they match the recommendations for viscosity grade and oil type. Be sure to use full synthetic or synthetic blend diesel engine oil in the viscosity recommended for your model year.

How often to change the oil in a Ford 6.7 Powerstroke

Ford recommends an oil change for your 6.7L Powerstroke engine every 10,000 miles or six months in your
car maintenance schedule
—whichever comes first.
Get into the habit of checking your oil regularly to ensure everything is running smoothly. The following are signs that you should change your oil:
  • You hear strange and/or unfamiliar sounds coming from your engine
  • You smell oil, burning, or smoke
  • You notice changes in how your vehicle performs

How to change your oil and filter

To change your oil, you’ll need a few essential tools and supplies
  • A socket wrench
  • A drain pan
  • A filter wrench 
  • A replacement filter
  • 15 quarts of Motorcraft SAE 10W-30 Super Duty Diesel Motor Oil
Once you have everything you need, run your engine for five to ten minutes to get it up to operating temperature. Once your engine is warm, turn it off, pop the hood, and do the following:
  • Remove the oil fill cap.
  • Slide under the engine and remove the oil drain bolt and washer to drain the old oil into your drain pan.
  • Remove the old oil filter.
  • Allow all the old oil to drain.
  • Install the new filter.
  • With a new washer, replace the oil drain bolt, tightening it to 29 lb-ft.
  • Fill the engine with 15 quarts of new oil and replace the fill cap.
  • Use your dipstick to ensure you’ve added enough oil.
  • Run the engine for a few minutes, checking for leaks.
  • Recheck the oil, and top off if necessary.
  • Ensure your
    oil pressure light
    is off.
To clean up, pour oil into a sealed container and bring it to your nearest recycling center. Don’t put old oil into the garbage or pour it on the ground.
