Re: How much oil does your 7.3 use?

ROB02F250- These motors only hold 15 qt nd that usually will put it a smidge over the full mark. If your putting 16 quarts into your engine it will push it out every place it can escape, they DO NOT like being over filled!! If your draining your hpop each time your fine.
