Ford 5.4L V-8 engine holds 6 quarts of oil with filter.
The 5.4 L Triton is a V8 engine produced by Ford Motor Company. This engine, along with the several other V8 and V10 engines, are a part of what is called the Ford Modular engine family, which is essentially all of the V8 and V10 overhead cam engines.
The modular name may be misleading at first, as it sounds as though the parts may be interchangeable. However, in this case “modular” refers to the manufacturing plants being able to quickly change tooling in order to produce a different engine in that family.
The 5.4L Triton was originally available in Ford F-series trucks, Expedition, and the E-series of vans. Later, a 3 valve version was introduced as well to some Australian applications as well as being made available in F-series trucks, the Expedition, and the Lincoln Navigator.
The final revision was the 4 valve per cylinder setup, originally installed in the Lincoln Navigator but was later made to be primarily for performance car application like the Ford Shelby Mustang and the Ford GT.
This engine was first introduced for production in 1997 in the Ford F-series trucks. This engine lasted until 2010 in the F-series family but is still being used in the E-series van family.
