Today I can proudly say I stepped out of the "Mature Adult" mentality for about 30 seconds. And after, it made me even a MORE proud owner of a Power Stroke.
Anyway, to make a very long story short. I went down during lunch to take some drinks to an estate house my crew was cleaning out. At a light, this Duramax silverado kept doing the "scoot scoot" at the light. Now being in a van, he probably didn't expect anything. Needless to say, green light.....buh bye. I will give him points for trying. And it WAS immature of my 41yr old ***. But hey, it felt good. Sleeper van with a stock 7.3 ate a Chevy Duramax for lunch. I'm sure I wasted a good $10.00 in fuel, but for the pride I felt in that engine after? Was money well spent.
And second, this brings me to my need to hijack some of the knowledge you all have. I am pretty much a jack of all trades, master of none. The Army did teach me alot about diesels and such, but now that I have my very own P.S., I want to make sure it's taken care of (yea yea I know racing it won't do that).
What would be the best bet for maintenance on that? It's got 201K miles on it now, and was used alot in it's life. I have been told that these engines will go forever if well cared for, so that is what I'm aiming for.
What I would like to know is what oil type would be best for the 90 degree high humidity weather here in FL, synthetic or regular. As well as any other tips I can swipe from you all.
