F-150 Oil Change

Went to the 10 minute oil change shop for a engine oil/filter change in my 97 F150 5.4. Noticed a 7th qt was charged for at 3.90. I ask about this this and was told FORD V-8 take 7 qts ?? My info has allways listed 6qts with filter change.

At 3.90 per qt I guess I would be selling all the EXTRA QTS I could.

THOUGHTS anyone

Your owners manual should state all fluid capacities.I don't know how much it holds but I've had owners of GMC Envoys complain about being charged for 7 qts and I politely tell them if they have not been using 7 qts at an oil change they are running the engine 1 qt low and refer them to the owners manual for the vehicle.

The owners manual states "6" qts INCLUDING OIL FILTER. I also called the local FORD DEALER and got the same answer. I was hopping that other F-150 owners might has some insight.

Sounds like you need to call quickie lubes manager and complain.Most of the time the people changing your oil at the quicky shops know nothing and I would be impressed if they could spell their own name.

I don't go to any of these quik-lube places anymore since one of their clowns told me he would have to remove the grille on my pick-up to change a parking light bulb.
I believe these places are the training grounds for wannabe technicians and the inept. just my opinion.

See if the level is over full. If so demand they drain to the correct level. And refund for the extra quart that they charged you SYNTHETIC OIL price for!!
