Video Description

The video above shows you how to add oil to your 1984 Ford F-250. Before adding oil to your F-250, make sure that your engine was cold and that your car was parked on a level surface when you checked the oil level otherwise you won't be able to tell if your F-250 has a low oil level. For most Fords, if your oil level is at the minimum mark on your dipstick, you should add about a quart of oil. If you are unsure how much oil to add to your F-250, add a little bit at a time and check your dipstick frequently. This video shows you where the oil fill cap is located on your F-250 and how to add oil. Adding too much oil to your F-250 can be harmful, so it is easiest to add a little at a time.

If you add too much oil to your F-250, you will need to remove some by loosening the drain plug underneath your engine - check out our video on how to change your oil & oil filter to see how to remove the excess oil.
