JK you can switch back and forth whenever you want doesn't matter how many miles. If it makes you feel better I switched over to synthetic at 185K ish

LOL! I appreciate it! Looks like my next oil change will be switching to 5-40 T6. I've always been a Rotella fan.

Yea that's what these trucks like. I've used 5W/40 forever in two trucks and both ran like a clock. It's fabulous oil and light years ahead of natural oil.
Like everyone says go with the jug that looks prettiest to you. Rotella is very popular and I think it's because Wal Mart has had it on the shelf cheap for years. I'm no different but probably use Delo more often. The biggie in brands is important on the filters go Motorcraft ONLY.

Have fun with it and look at the beer you can buy now instead of blowing the cash all on crazy costly oil.

I use amsoils biggest rival, RP, and I go 10k between changes. I also use archoil every change. 250.00 a oil change, but at 70 every 3k for dino, worth it.

Speaking from experience, a higher mileage engine may have some sludge buildup, and in my case I put Mobil One in an engine with 160k. The synthetics have more cleaning additive and will loosen whatever sludge you may have and clog the pickup filter in the pan. To fix that problem I changed oil 3 times with a thinner oil, then put good oil back in. It worked. you an always drop the pan and clean it. That's the best method.

I'm not aware of a pan filter in the 7.3 or 6.0. Plus dropping the pan on either one is not exactly easy. Now if you're talking transmission, then yes there's a filter in the pan and that's easily dropped.

Am I missing something here ? I thought we were talking ENGINE oil not tranny...

and what's "good oil"?
