2018 F350 6.2 L Oil Type, Capacity, & Filter

The 6.2 L V8 engine in the 2018 Ford F350 takes 7.0 qt of SAE 5W-30 engine oil and the Motorcraft FL-820-S Oil Filter.

Ford recommends that you use the Motorcraft version of these two items, which I’ve found on Amazon below, but I believe as long as you choose to use synthetic blend oil with an appropriately sized oil filter, you should have no problems.

Ford mentions that for this engine, if you plan to run frequently at cold starts (or running at extremely cold temperatures) you should use SAE 0W-30. There doesn’t appear to be an easily available Motorcraft version of this, so I recommend Mobile 1 full synthetic as a replacement.

2018 F350 6.7 L Diesel V8 Oil Type, Capacity, & Filter

The 6.7 L Diesel engine in the 2018 Ford F350 takes 13.0 qt of SAE 10W-30 engine oil and uses a Motorcraft FL-2051-S filter.

Ford recommends that you use the Motorcraft version of these two items, which I’ve found on Amazon below, but I believe as long as you choose to use synthetic blend oil with an appropriately sized oil filter, you should have no problems.

How often should you change your F350 Oil?

According to the 2018 Ford F350 manual, under normal usage conditions, the oil in your truck should be changed every 5,000 or every 6 months.

There is an oil change indicator system that should provide a guide as to when the oil should be changed. At a maximum, you should never change your oil with more than 10,000 miles or one year between changes.

Every time you perform an oil change you should also:

  • inspect wheels
  • rotate tires
  • inspect and lubricate u-joints

Selecting the right oil for your 2018 Ford F350

Follow the link below to buy the right oil type for your engine.

Not sure which engine you have? Look under the hood. There should be some kind of label that determines which engine you have.

If you do not choose to buy the recommended Motorcraft oil by Ford, you should try to always buy a synthetic blend of oil with one that has the API-certified logo on it.

This will ensure that the oil you are putting in your car conforms to the engine, emission system, and fuel economy standards set by the International Lubricants Specification Advisory Council.

And lastly, DO NOT USE SUPPLEMENTAL ENGINE OIL ADDITIVES!
