change oil light? does it have one

Hello folks, I just got this 2000 F250 dsl, and loving it. Does it have a automatic "change oil" light that comes on. Or do I have to manually log my miles.

IF you want to follow the book, change it every 5k miles. If you wnat to optomize your oil useage, send a sample in to this lab and they will test your oil and tell you everything that is taking place inside your engine based on your driving habits and style. They may very well tell you that you can get more than 5k miles on an oil change. I have done this and since it take over 4 gallons to change oil in my 6.0 PSD, an extra 1000 miles is $$ in my pocket.
