Ford F-150 5.0L V8 Maintenance Guide

Since it joined the Ford F-150 powertrain lineup in 2011, the 5.0L V8 “Coyote” engine has been a popular choice amongst potential F-150 buyers. Despite its natural aspiration, it is remarkably fuel efficient, especially in its latest iterations. When paired with the 2022 Ford F-150, an impressive fuel economy of 24 miles per gallon on the highway is achieved. The 5.0L V8 Engine’s natural aspiration also provides another advantage compared to engines like the 2.7L EcoBoost or the 3.5L EcoBoost turbocharged engines, which is simplicity. The lack of a turbocharger system and other sophisticated components make these engines likely cheaper to maintain in the long term and help prevent certain expensive repairs from ever happening. Furthermore, maintenance is also simpler and if you observe a strict Ford F-150 5.0L V8 Maintenance routine, you can almost ensure a long life out of your truck.

In this post, we’re going to concrete on giving you all the information you need to properly maintain a Ford F-150 with the 5.0L V8 Engine. We’ll cover Ford F-150 5.0L V8 Maintenance & Service Schedules, provide Fluid Capacity numbers for the various fluids required, and even list the most common 5.0L V8 Maintenance Parts, Fluids, and the engine oil that you will need. Let’s Dive in.

How to Maintain a Ford F-150 with the 5.0L V8 “Coyote” Engine

Servicing a Ford F-150 with the 5.0L V8 Engine is something that can be at home by yourself, or you can take it somewhere else to have it serviced. You can take your F-150 to either a Ford Dealer or another Mechanic shop where they will do everything for you. If you choose this method, you can expect to spend a couple hundred dollars every time you take your vehicle in for service. We also recommend you pay attention and request only Motorcraft or Ford parts be used in your truck. Some shops will use cheap alternatives and different oils than what is recommended by Ford which can shorten the life of your vehicle.

If you have basic mechanical skills and tools, you should be able to complete a majority of the maintenance on your Ford F-150 by yourself. By doing so, you can save yourself hundreds or even thousands of dollars throughout the lifetime of your truck and you can also make sure your vehicle is using the right fluids, filters, and engine oil that will help provide the greatest longevity.

To service your Ford F-150 on your own, you just need to be aware of your vehicles service intervals, the vehicle’s fluid capacities, and what parts, fluids, and oil you’re going to need. We cover each of these, but we also recommend you procure an owner’s manual for your truck if you don’t already have one. All this information is also found in there.

Ford F-150 5.0L V8 Maintenance Intervals

The first step in understanding how to complete proper Ford F-150 5.0L V8 maintenance is knowing how frequently you need to service your truck. Different tasks need to be completed at different mileage intervals so you need to know where your truck is at in terms of mileage and adopt the following schedule. If you just purchased your truck, ask the dealer you bought it from if it was serviced and what exactly was done.

There are two separate sets of Ford F-150 5.0L V8 Maintenance Intervals that you can follow. Be brutally honest with yourself about how you use your vehicle. Most drivers should use the normal operating conditions set of maintenance intervals. If you put more than the average amount of stress on your truck however, you should be using the severe maintenance intervals.

Normal Operating Conditions

This set of operating conditions is for the average driver that mostly uses their truck for commuting. Some light towing or infrequent heavy towing is fine.

Ford F-150 5.0L V8 Fluid Capacity

Now that you know how often maintenance needs to be completed and specifically what tasks need to be done, the next step in 5.0L V8 Maintenance is knowing how much of each fluid this truck requires. This is important because without knowing, you’d be guessing at how much fluid or oil you need which could cause you to purchase either too little or too much. The following chart breaks down how much of each fluid these trucks require. Make sure you pay special attention when identifying the fluid needed for your truck because the 5.0L V8 engine has different fluid capacities for different model years.

In this section of our maintenance guide, we’re going to cover all the tasks you need to complete in addition to when they need to be completed.

Monthly Maintenance Tasks

  • Inspect Engine Oil Level. Add Fluid if necessary.
  • Check underneath your truck and the area where your truck is parked for any signs of a potential oil or fluid leak.
  • Test all interior and exterior lights for proper operation. Change bulbs as needed.
  • Check all tires for proper pressure, including the spare. Also check tires for signs of wear and for nails and screws.
  • Top off windshield wiper fluid with fluid appropriate fluid for the season.

Semi-Annual Maintenance

  • Check Battery Connections. Clean them if needed.
  • Check body and door holes for obstructions. If there are any, clear them.
  • Inspect the cooling system and test coolant strength.
  • Lubricate door weatherstrips and check them for wear.
  • Check all doors, latches, and hinges for proper operation. Lubricate them if necessary.
  • Test Parking Brake and make sure it is operating properly.
  • Examine windshield wiper blades and spray mechanisms for proper performance. If blades perform inadequately, replace them.

2022 Ford F-150 Maintenance: Where to Start

The first step in 2022 Ford F-150 Maintenance is knowing the required service tasks and how often they need to be completed. There are sets of tasks that need to be completed monthly as well as semi-annually. These tasks are easy to complete and should only take a couple of minutes. Their purpose is to catch problems early and maintain safe vehicle operation.

Monthly Maintenance Tasks

  • Check Engine Oil Level.
  • Inspect under your truck and where you park for signs of any fluid leaks.
  • Exterior and Interior Light Test: Make sure all interior and exterior lights are functioning properly.
  • Check Tire pressure of all tires, including the spare underneath the vehicle.
  • Top-off windshield wiper fluid and make sure you use fluid that is appropriate for the season.

Semi-Annual Maintenance

  • Inspect Battery Connections. Clean them if necessary.
  • Check body and door holes for obstructions. Clear them as needed.
  • Inspect the cooling system. Test coolant system strength and make sure proper fluid level is present.
  • Lubricate door weatherstrips and check them for wear.
  • Check all doors, latches, and hinges for proper operation. Lubricate them if needed.
  • Ensure proper operation of the parking brake.
  • Test all seatbelts and seatbelt latches for wear. Make sure they are all operating properly!
  • Test wiper blades and washer spray operation.

2022 Ford F-150 Maintenance Intervals

In addition to the tasks listed above, you will need to perform periodic maintenance based on mileage or kilometer intervals. These are more significant maintenance tasks that require different parts, fluids, and tools to complete. The intervals themselves can be different as well, as they are dependent on how you use your 2022 F-150. Be honest with yourself about how you use your vehicle and follow the appropriate maintenance intervals listed in the chart below.

Normal Operating Conditions

If you tend to “baby” your 2022 Ford F-150, or if you use your vehicle for mostly commuting, follow the normal operation conditions set of Maintenance Intervals. This calls for less frequent service intervals and is a cheaper ownership path.
