4.6L V8 Oil Change

Went to 5 Minute Oil Change today and they couldn't change the oil. By the time they found out they didn't have the info in their computer they had already drained the oil. They replaced it with their standard grade Castrol.

Heading out of town early Monday so it looks as though I will have to do this oil change on my own. I am completely capable, it's just with the services out there today it's cheaper time wise to bring it to a oil change place.

So here's the ??? What oil filter do I need and why can't I find the info in my manual?

Don't take your truck to those quick oil change places, they'll mess your truck. They'll put wrong oil viscosity, put o-rings in the wrong places, over torque,....
