Make a fuss. They installed a Fusion Sport dipstick (or some variant of a 6 quart capacity FWD 2.7L). That’s absurd and I’m actually infuriated that even passed. They told us for the longest time it was fine but I should have done more research.Ford supplying the correct dipstick for free?
I'm changing the oil today and will fill to the level on the dipstick.
It really should be corrected by Ford and owners need to be notified since many of us avoid dealer service departments like the plague.Make a fuss.

After2 miles?????? all of the engine oil was in my drain pan (from the dealer)…
The Motor never even got up to temp….
Even mixed with residual oil it doesn’t turn black like that…..
that is!!!! Exactly what it is…. My oil after 4K miles from my first change….
WITHOUT QUESTION THAT IS NOT Fresh oil….
**** even my oil in my boat to store it for winter looks fresh….. this is oxidized aka “Black”
I respectfully disagree with you.
And I can show you any Perkins engine in a MF tractor from 50s 60s 70s 80s 90s whose CC-CD-CF (diesel rated) oil that will in fact be as black after 1 hour as it is at its 100 hrs change. But I can also show you any Kubota tractor whose oil looks almost as fresh out of the pan as it dies the jug.Oil on left has Two miles on it (one trip home from the dealer)
The oil on the right has zero miles. Yet the same oil from supposedly the same jug.
no oil on the planet can oxidize and turn that black in 2 miles (a few hours after driving it home…)
Sherlock Holmes …. you clearly aren’t.
Believe what you want to believe…
The problem is solved… I won’t be relying on dishonest people to change my oil and service my Bronco.
For the record, I won’t be apologizing to anyone!
You should not have to supply on your own. Unless Ford determines it is not a safety or service issue as long as your techs always fill with exactly 7.0 quartsIf Ford doesn't take care of we will supply to our customers on our dime and hope other dealers follow suit. I can't imagine Ford not coming out with some sort of program for this because they have for similar stuff like this in the past. To me, it's not worth the conversation or aggravation considering the cost of the part.
I agree but if Ford doesn't step up, we will. Our guys know the fill capacities but not all of our bronco customers do their own service or are close enough to justify the drive for us to do their regular maintenance. I trust other shops like I trust a fart after a meal of lard fried chicken livers, german fries and beer.You should not have to supply on your own.

Don't judge me for the mess. New top, old bottom.
Measured to the shoulder, old.
Oil level old. (2,500 on oil)
New (3 samples, averaged between top hole and top hash mark)
I hope we can put this issue to bed now.
