Ford V10, How many qts for oil change.

I have a 02 MH with a Ford V10. How many quarts in
crank case.

Don't know if a MH version V10 holds more oil than a
typical Ford truck with a V10.

Thanks in advance.

Same engine, but motorhome may have a deeper oil pan, holding more, for better cooling. Start with 6 quarts, check dipstick, and you will be able to tell if one or two more quarts are needed, if any .

That year ( I had an 01 ) should be six. I also had an 08 and there was a lot of confusion ranging from 6 - 6 1/2-7. I actually saw three different publications from Ford. The advice above is the best. Start with six. You can always add easier than remove.

Mine is a 2012, Mirada and the owners manual shows 7 quarts. I'll know for sure this weekend when I change my oil.

Ours is a 2014 coach, but I think the engine/frame is 2013. The manual says 7 quarts with oil filter. However, it only took a little bit over 6 for the dipstick to show full. I think it would be 7 quarts if totally empty.

Changed oil this afternoon. I let it drain for about an hour. At 6 quarts it only showed 1/4 inch on the bottom of the dip stick. Took 7 quarts to get it to the full mark.

A 2002 takes 6 quarts according to this service manual. Don't know when but later it did go to 7 quarts like my 2012. Here is the link for 2002. See page 95

How much oil.

I have a 2005 Winnie /V10 and it takes about 6 1/2 gts with new filter to get it
High on the dipstick.
