Did you check the oil before or after running the engine after the change? Also, did you change the oil filter?Mikey5 said:I did my first synthetic oil change, however, the first thing i noticed when i removed the drain plug, it didnt have a gasket. Is my truck fine without it or will there be problems? I didnt mind it at first so i closed it and added 5.5 qtz of mobil 1 synthetic, however, i checked the dipstick afterwards and it showed that i over filled it. now my 2nd question is, should i change my oil again to get the correct level or will it be fine until the next oil change? please help.
It's a good idea to circulate the oil a few minutes, turn off the engine and then recheck. If you only added 5.5 qts, as the capacity with the 4x4 V6 is exactly 5.5 qts.
