when i first bought my truck with 36k miles went about 7k miles on the first oil change.
book says 10k mile oil change intervals. after reading here decided 5k is as far as i want to go regardless of driving habits and load.
ive put 17k miles on her now and have a handful of oil changes done. i wont go past 4k miles. valvetrain was chattering a little louder around the 3500 mile mark.
ive observed the oil stays cooler longer, cools down faster, and runs smoother with more frequent changes.
after reading a lot of valvetrain problems id rather keep my oil fresh than risk premature wear.
my first blackstone test was sent in this last change. hopefully everything will look good.
