everything from changing the programming to easy hard-wire jumpers


Suggestions on the truck forums are that the jumper method on 2018's will result in an error display. Posters also say using Forscan to reprogram will disable the Battery Management System.

Better check your manual before you dump 10 quarts in it. My '18 5.0L specs 8.8 quarts.

You're right. Any time I try to do things from memory I'm reminded why I always told apprentices to look it up.

Changing oil is not maintenance. Maintenance is the science of inspecting equipment to find and fix things before they break.

Well, capacity went up about a quart over my '13 anyway. Thanks guys.

What I've done on mine to disable the start/stop system is simple and it works, no errors or anything. There is a small two wire connection off of the battery, if you unplug that it will turn the system off. Many have done it, no ill effects so far. Mine has been off for 3-4 months now.

That disables the Battery Management System as well. It apparently dictates the charging algorithm, perhaps other things. Some on the truck forums suggest disabling the BMS is a good thing but I have yet to be convinced taking into consideration an AGM battery.

Update: as the weather got colder, shifting became completely unacceptable. Everything from violent 1-2 shifts that felt like the driveshaft snapped to hanging in first gear to dropping into neutral briefly between 1 and 2. The dealer did the update flash and it is now acceptable. It's still not like the previous 6 speed but I can live with it.

We got the 6R100 Torqshift G (upgraded 6R80) when the 10-spd came out in the F150. They shifted the production capacity of the 6-spd to gasser F250s when the 10-spd hit your market. The 6R100 is a sweet tranny overall.
Those of us driving the "new" 6.2L F250 trucks thank you for your donation!

The act of preventative maintenance, in and of itself, is FAR MORE important than brand/grade/base choices among lubes and filters.
- under maintaining something is akin to abuse/neglect; that can kill equipment by shortening the lifespan
- over maintaining something has never been proven to be anything but a waste of time and money

I have a 2017 F53 chassis with the 6.8 V10 and a 6R140 transmission. The 6R140 shift quality is on a par with an Allison. Unfortunately, neither one is available in a pick up.

To stop the AutoStart/stop I bought this. Not exactly cheap but now it stays off unless I press the button to turn it back on.
