Also why is the dipstick so hard to read? My old cars I could easily tell where the oil level was.
My first two questions were why is the dipstick 4 feet long and why is it so hard to read.

Same as yer legs, it's the right length to get from where it starts to where it needs to be :cautious: . :LOL:

My first oil change at 1,000 miles I put in the recommended 7.75 quarts and had to drain out a quart to make it to the top of hash marks. Was way over full.

5.0L V8. Not sure if it was because the oil was cold and coming out like molasses maybe a lot was left in there. Was like 10 degrees out when I changed it and I didn’t really warm it up.

Oil change and put on new Raptor skid plate on my XLT. All connection points there but you do need some extra nuts/bolts.

Did you run the truck before checking the oil? Usually we'd put in an even 8 and it was right on the money or just a hair high which was fine since they all burned oil anyway.

Yep, was still crazy high. I think it was the 18-20 that called for 8 quarts. Reading on the 13th gen is what pushed me to buy a 14th gen, both the 5.0L and 3.5 EcoBoost have serious issues on the 17-20 trucks.

Those were 8.8 but got 9. Guarantee most all are getting 8 on the money whether at the dealer or independent.

Glad I wasnt the only one. I purposely only put in 7.5 and I am still way above the full mark.
and I drained warm oil on a warm day and let it dribble for a while.

Ya it’s definitely not able to take 7.75 quarts I let it drain with the plug out and filter out a good 20 minutes. I think 7 quarts is a safe fill and check it from there.
