Oil change and HPOP reservoir

This may be a dumb question, but a quick search didn't reveal much. How much used oil is left in the HPOP reservoir after the system has been drained of oil? Other than removing the oil cooler assembly, is there any practical way of draining it? Or would we even want to considering that would mean the HPOP would be running dry until its reservoir was filled up?

Re: Oil change and HPOP reservoir

Don't overthink it. There is going to be some old oil left over when you change it.

Drop 15qt out of the pan. Put 15qt in the top. And your done.

+1 ^

Most Techs that I know have to add apprx. 18 quarts to a totally dry engine which means that around 3 quarts "hang up" in the entire system.

Re: Oil change and HPOP reservoir

On my '03 F-250 I have never worried about it and I likely never will with my new Ex, but since I'm getting ready to tear into it soon and the procedure of sucking the oil out of the HPOP reservoir is involved it just kinda sparked that question, so I figured I would ask.

Re: Oil change and HPOP reservoir

I'm doing EGR delete w/up-pipe, oil cooler flush or replace if needed, oil bypass filter, coolant bypass filter, CCV catch can addition, replacing plastic CAC input tube with metal, replacing stock CAC pipe boots with Riff Raff version, gonna do a simple green flush of the CAC (lots of oil in there from the CCV system), blue spring mod w/new cover, upgraded pressure and drain tubes for turbo....I know there is more, but I just can't think of what it is off the top of my head. lol

I know I don't HAVE to take the oil cooler assembly off to do a flush, I'm still going to because a lot of folks have found their HPOP screen filter ripped, so I'm going to replace that with the upgraded stainless mesh version. It will also allow me to drain that reservoir and refill it before I put the cooler back on with fresh oil. I will be adding Archoil 9100 as well.
