Multi-point inspection checklist.

Is there a list for this service available?

I think I'll check with the service dept here. If they charge you for it they should be able to show what it is.

You got charged for it? That should be free, its just a way the dealer can get more customer pay on the service drive......I should know I try every day to get dealers at my job to understand this concept.

I have not brought it in yet.

I just assumed it was going to be something they would charge for if you did not change the oil.

So if I bring it in for 5000 mile service without oil change all I pay for is tire rotation?

That's cool.

Yeah that should be how it works. I try to teach the dealers to not rip the customers heads off at the door and due a free inspection to gain the trust of customer and get some customer pay work, but as we both know each dealership is different, don't be too surprised though if its not a quick inspection, because the truck is so new and the possibly for customer pay work is not likely....

Going over the manual again and I see it is on page 61 of the Powerstroke Owners Guide Supplement.

It seems that some of the dealers are still recommending 3,000 mile oil changes or a maximum of 5,000 miles.

This seems ridiculous to me but I was just wondering what everyone else thinks.

Why would Ford recommend 10,000 miles if they were going to need it at 3,000.

I am considering an oil analysis every 5,000 if I can find a good way to extract the required amount of oil.

If I do tow for a 1,000 miles or more or other driving habits change I will change it at 5,000 but I see no need to do it otherwise.

What's the feeling of the first oil change?

I heard the engine comes with 10w30 in it.

I heard 10w30 comes in the motor from Ford as well. Yes your right, Ford recommends an oil change every 10,000 miles with normal driving, just like GM wants you to follow their oil life system, but these are the factory recommendations. The dealer is going to recommendation every 3,000 because that is what the general public knows and the dealer is also banking on the fact that you don't read your owners manual. Most people think that warranty type items and recommendations from dealers come from Ford or GM or whoever, it doesn't, the dealership is in the business to make money and lots of it! As far as the first oil change, I've always been a believer in changing the break-in oil in no less than 1,000 miles, I changed mine at 800 miles and changing every 4,000

I've seen everything from "Change it before you pull off the lot." to "Don't change until you get past 3,000 miles."

Some believe the 10w30 is in there so the thinner oil will flow better with the tight parts. Others seem to think it's for the possibility of cold weather.
