Regular service-intervals

Hey all,
So I made the mistake of test driving a 2013 6.7. Now im ready to get rid of my ole 7.3!

What intervals are you changing oil and how often are you going thru fuel filters? Its my understanding that fuel pressure is hugeon these motors and the filters need changed pretty often. Looking for some feedback. Thanks!!

Lol you got bit by the diesel bug! As far as maintenance, these new trucks are very good about telling you what they need when they need it. Typically guys are changing their oil and filters every 7500-10,000 miles and fuel filters every other oil change.

Oh the bug bit years ago. I really did like the '13, just funny how many different intervals guys are doing. Dropping around $70 for the fuel filters I'd hope no more that 2x a year would be needed. That's how often i change em now and i don't even drive over 15K a year.

Decisions, decisions.............

Change the oil when the truck tells me to. Using Delvac 1 5w40. Haven changed my fuel filters yet busy have a set ready. Probably will change 15 - 18K though. Rotate the tires at every oil change which will be around the 7 - 8k range
