Oil Flush NEEDED???

Next oil change going to synthetic. Do I need to flush system with desired synthetic, for instance put it in run for several minutes then drain and put new in or is it ok to just drain the conventional, refill with the synthetic and call it good

Yeah. I'm wanting to switch to synthetic as well. What kind are you planning to go with?

Thinking of going with the Rotella T5 50/50 Blend. I like the thought of the T6 Full Synthetic but they don't offer that in 10W30. I never tow anything except my 19' Bass Boat so I cannot call what I do Heavy Conditions. I have been researching this all day long waiting on the Super Bowl and have found a ton of good information and reason to stay with the 10W30 vs 10W40 or 5W40 ect. I have certainly made my mind up on the 10W30 and I have always heard great things about Rotella so thinking of giving it a shot

Run 5/40 Valvoline trublue its full syn and has some wonderful additives in it that aid in the typewriter if you search it in the forum you will see a lot of guys running that oil with great success and a another perk a Ford diesel tech told me these engines love 5/40. So I swapped over and have never looked back.

Thanks Carli for the input,,, guess I just thought my homework was finished...I'm gonna into this. How long have you been running it and how does it react to the Regens? Oh yeah, I think you are Deleted

The Valvoline 5/40 sounds better to me. The Rotella seems like something I would put on a sandwich. I'm at 3k miles right now. Should I go ahead and switch to synthetic or maybe wait a while?

Yea I'm deleted but it has all the additives for extended service and fuel breakdown from regening so you're golden .

The sooner the better you'll notice too that the first time you use it you will get little to no typewriter for the first 800-1000 miles that is found when using almost every other oil out there if not running the XL 90 or whatever that stupid additive is .
