Having the Fleetguard LF16166 Oil Filter on hand makes the oil change intervals of your Powerstroke diesel easy. The oil service interval is based upon the use of the truck. Normal operating conditions require a seven thousand five hundred miles or six-month interval. If your Ford Super Duty is used for snow plowing, towing, periods of excessive idling, and driving in extremely hot or cold conditions the oil change interval is reduced to five thousand miles.
Oil dilution is a common problem with Ford 6.4L Powerstroke so a shorter change interval is a smart maintenance procedure. You might have been surprised at the excess amount of fluid that is drained. What you’re experiencing is oil dilution. That extra liquid is diesel fuel. When your 6.4 undergoes active regeneration, diesel is injected late in the exhaust stroke. It then travels into the exhaust stream, elevates EGTs, and burns off hydrocarbons from the diesel particulate filter. Diesel fuel doesn’t offer the same lubricating properties as your engine oil and this leads to excess wear rates on crucial engine components. Checking your engine oil level and more frequent change intervals will end this expensive problem.
