Power Stroke Maintenance Schedule

7.3L, 6.0L, 6.4L, & 6.7L Power Stroke Service Intervals

The following maintenance intervals are recommended in order to ensure the longevity of your Power Stroke Diesel. Some items are listed in miles, operational hours, and/or time - perform maintenance at whichever comes first. Only use fluids and replacement parts that meet or exceed Ford's specifications. In addition to the scheduled maintenance listed below, the brake pads, serpentine belt, engine coolant hoses, brake/transmission fluid level, engine coolant level, and air filter condition should be checked at each oil change.

Maintenance Schedule, All Power Stroke Diesels

Severe duty/special service conditions include:

• Extended periods of engine idling (10 minutes of idling per hour of constant driving)
• Operating in weather conditions below -10° F or above 100° F
• Driving in dusty conditions
• Frequent off-road driving (4 wheel drive usage)
• Frequent light to medium towing (1,000+ miles per oil change interval)
• Frequent heavy towing/hauling

If you're driving behavior falls under any of these conditions, you are advised to follow all "severe duty" service intervals.

Oil, Fluid Requirements & Capacities, All Power Stroke Diesels

Note - All fluid capacities are nominal (approximate) and should be used as a reference for acquiring fluid only. Always fill to dipstick or fill plug level as applicable. Automatic transmission fluid capacity is typically total dry fill. A supplemental additive/friction modifier may be required in limited slip differentials, use Motorcraft XL-3 limited slip differential additive.
