We have a Transit 2013 and have just replaced the oil.

Customer Question
Hi there, we have...

Hi there, we have a Transit 2013 and have just replaced the oil. However, we used 6.14Litres, but nothing shows on the dipstick at all? Do we have to use more? It is a manual transmission. Thank you

Mechanic's Assistant: Has the clutch been slipping? Are you having any trouble shifting?

Neither, we bought a motorhome built on a 2013 and it only has done 1300Km, but as it had been standing for a long time, we decided to refresh the oil

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '13 Ford?

It is made in Malaysia, Ford Transit 155HP

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Transit yourself? What have you tried so far?

Nothing was wrong and as such low kilometres, the only thing we wanted to do was an oil change

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Oh, engine light was on when we bought it and got instructions how to reset it and after that we only drive 650 Km so far. We just did not want to drive it with oil that had been in there for 5 years

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
