E450 Oil and filter change cost

Will be getting my first oil change and filter shortly. It will be done at a Ford dealer. When I had an F53 Class A the cost was quite reasonable.

What should I expect to pay now?

Tx

Don

You don't say when you last changed oil on your F-53. Cost have skyrocketed in the past few months. I do my own oil changes, so what ever the cost of good oil is, plus filter is the same on both units. Grease the chassis.

I got an oil change last week for our V10 E450 and I paid $46 at a local repair shop, the one prior was done last August at a Ford dealership and I paid $36.

Smile More expensive lube and oil change

I would not feel bad about an oil change and lube that cost in the $50 - $60 range. I just had my 31' DynaQuest 302 ST serviced Friday. It has a Cat C7 diesel. The oil change (22 qts) plus a full chassis lube (25+ fitings) plus 2 mega fuel filters plus a mega oil filter plus three hours of labor for checking things over cost just over $500. I know this is sort of "apples to oranges" but I just wanted to help put maintenance costs in perspective. If the job is done right it is worth paying a fair profit to the dealer/mechanic.
By the way, I am a Newbie on this forum and very much am enjoying all the comments and ideas being discussed.

Arthur, if you look at my sig you will see we've had 2 DPs. So with respect to your cost - been there done that. :( Mind you, the place where I got GREAT value was Freightliner at its Gaffney plant - all the year one service on a CAT C7 PLUS switch of Allison transmission to Transynd from Dexron. I was very pleased with that invoice. With my next one it was all year one service on Ambassador with ISC, plus diesel gen service - and that was over $900 at a Cummins dealer.

Just left the local Ford dealer... oil change, new filter and lube was $59.99 and tax. This is on an E450 Super Duty chassis with a V10 engine.

Fair enough price, especially through a dealer. Did you supervise the lubing of the chassis zerks?
