Finally did my own oil change.. fuel mileage should get better!!!

20, 000miles and this is my 3rd oil change. The fuel filter and air filter was filthy. I forgot what my turbo sounded like. it was lazy as hell. Its spooling quick now..

Picked up everything from O'Reillys. $11.99 a gallon for Chevron Delo 15w40. I meant it when I told the dealership that was the last $275 oil change they get out me.

And the fuel filter under the truck scared me.. the housing cracked. Good thing the oring sits midways on the housing.

Most of the country is in a deep freeze. Not sure where you are from but I wouldn't be putting no 15W-40 in it. Just my opinion

Wow, for the oil changes at my dealer is 130 something. Now if I get all new filters its in the 275 range but for the normal oil change and tire rotations its no where near that?

Stock for now.

I have a 5gallon catch pan but had no idea the plug was coming out like that. Luckily I had it in the right spot. I spilled very little.. scared the crap out of me

That was oil, oil filter, topped off the exhaust fluid, airfilter and I can't remember what else. I need to look for the invoice. That was my last dealedship experience
