how many quarts of oil should my f150 take?
I ran my truck down to almost no oil. I added 6 quarts and it still reads "add." The truck is a 2003 Triton V8.
6.1 qts, are you leaking it that fast?
I hope not. Does it need time before it registers on the stick?
Since you didn't remove the oil filter, then 5 qts. would get you up to range. Best time to check level is around 5mins after turning the engine off. Something isn't right.
Should I take it in? If so, oil change or mechanic?
I'd have a competent mechanic look it over for you.
Thank you. I appreciate the help.
