6.7L Power Stroke Service Information

6.7L Power Stroke Maintenance Schedule, Service Part Numbers, Fluid Specs

"Severe" duty conditions include any or any combination of the following:

• Excessive idling
• Frequent short trips in which the engine is shut-down before reaching full operating temperature
• Driving on dusty roads
• Driving off-road or in conditions that require 4 wheel drive
• Frequent towing or hauling (with the exception of very light loads)
• Using biodiesel blends greater than B5 (applies to oil, fuel filters only)

As a general rule of thumb, always abide by the "Severe Duty" service schedule if your vehicle is used in any strenuous activity, i.e. is subjected to more rigorous conditions than normal, unladen driving.

[1] Verify correct glow plug for application. Engines built before 12/1/2012 require ZD-17 glow plugs, while later engines require ZD-18 glow plugs. ZD-17 glow plugs are 91 mm long, while the later ZD-18 glow plugs are 96 mm long; only use the correct glow plug for your engine.
[2] Limited slip differentials may require a supplemental friction modifier - use Motorcraft XL-3)
[3] Nominal primary engine cooling circuit capacity. Because the 6.7L Power Stroke is equipped with an air-to-water charge air cooler (intercooler), it features a second cooling circuit.
[4] Nominal differential oil capacity. Always fill axle to fill plug level and do not rely on the oil capacity as the actual refill capacity. Use provided figures as a reference to obtain the necessary fluid quantity only.
