10k oil changes w/a egr???

Question-can you get 10,000 miles (or close) between oil changes (synthetic oil of your choice with a by pass oil filter of your choice) and still have a working EGR system?
Plz note I didnt ask or say anything about fuel in the oil being a issue. I just wanna know can it be done. Thanks

Possibly but confirm that with oil analysis.

I'm curious, what does the EGR system have to do with oiling, or how long you can run said oil?

Its possible, just need to do a filter change/top off. On my deleted trucks I run RP full synthetic and do 2 filter changes @ 5k and then swap oil out at 15k. Never had a problem and after every analysis the oil is still decent and could go longer if I wanted to. Never want to chance oil in the 6.0's though, too many possible problems if the oil is bad.

@ Karls03- EGR recirculates exhaust into the motor, so the oil becomes really dirty from the soot even on a stock motor.

10k seems to be the reasonable max limit for the oil in a 6.0L regardless of the EGR system or by-pass system.

Exactly right. The EGR adds a lot of soot to the oil.

Repo, you should do some research on that RP. I wouldn't run that crap in a lawn mower. Not meant to insult your choice but RP is really nasty stuff.

Hmmm, it would appear as though I looked right past the obvious.

Subscribed. I love reading new questions, especially those that I do not have the answer to. There is so much information. Once I switch to synthetic (probable T6) I would love to go 10k on an oil change

Soon... coolant flush.

I know, i know, that's why I always have it checked. Can't complain too much when it's free though. They're switching to Amsoil really soon so that'll be the end of RP in my trucks.
