Rumor: 10w30 oil only, for 6.0?
I was reading through some old threads on TheDieselStop.com just now and read a thread saying that according to a bulletin by Ford to all dealers, the only approved viscosity rating for the 6.0 is 10w30, unless towing above 90 degrees, ??? No 15w40, and no 5w40 recommended. Can this be true? The thread was from late '04, long time ago I know, but I was searching for info on a non-oil related topic. Techs chime in? What have you all heard? I've never even seen 10w30 diesel oil anywhere? I been using good old 15w40 like everyone else I thought.
