I just returned from the Ford dealer, where I was looking at full sized '05 trucks. I got underneath a few to take a peek. I couldn't find the oil filter. Where is it on the '05 full sized Ford trucks?
Wayne, what were you doing at the Ford stealer?
Back on topic...you said full-sized trucks. Do you mean By F150, F250, or F350? Gas or Diesel?
The new diesels have a cartridge oil filter located under the hood.
I was car shopping with my wife. She was looking for something for her.
F150's & Expedition 4.6L & 5.4L gassers were all I looked at, no diesels. I'm thinking the '05's may have a remote oil filter mount somewhere near the front of the vehicle.
I had a Excursion in the shop today. It had the filter up under the drivers fender accessed from underneeth.
It was a couple of years old.
PS: Replacing the compressor and accumulater is a terribly tough job!
