Changing your Onan 4000 Generator motor oil

I thought being that this thread was about changing oil that why not add changing the oil in our generators...

Regarding oil viscosity, some manufacturers actually spec 0w20 for certain new cars.

Oil change was insanely easy. Won't pay premium dollars for that again. Oh yeah, Wal-Mart is $10 cheaper on Mobil 1 than Autozone....on the debate, I went with the recommended 5w20...no sense in second guessing the engineers.

Of all the filters I have changed over the years, That is the first time I have seen anything like the nut on the bottom. Sure beats jabbing a screw driver through the filter to remove it, when you can't find the special pliers. I am sure other brands will follow. Stan

Ford changed the oil from 5W-20 to 5W-30 for the 2016 year 6.8L V10 per my Ford manual and engine oil cap.

The K&N filters with the nut on the bottom are not new, they've been on the market for several years.

I've always used a "oil filter wrench", they come in different sizes for different size filters, even WM sells them, just find the filter you need and then match it up to the correct size wrench. Never had "special pliers" that worked worth a $%^&. LOL

Odd. My manual for my 2016 is still specifying 5/20.

I checked with my Ford dealerships service dept. He said that it's still 5/20, and that anything else could cause catastrophic damage

Correction to my previous post. The 2016 manual does state 5w30 as elcheapo stated above. I just confirmed in my manual, On the dipstick and with the Ford Dealer during our alignment. Doing our this weekend.
Thanks!

That's a HUGE amount of miles for a gasser engine. And here I am wondering if mine will get to 50k w/o serious problems. I've never owned a Ford and certainly never owned a V10.
