just wondering the average cost of an oil change on the 6.0l, also how frequent do you do the change, do fuel filters at the same time?

I use Amsoil full synthetics and change it myself. Costs $110 for 4 gallons. I usually go 5-7k between oil changes and 10-12k on fuel filters.

$105 at my local dealer. He has a pretty decent shop, never has stiffed me, though I might go the Amsoil route myself this time, and see what difference it makes.

if you do it yourself, iot can run about 60 max using Rotella oil. getting into the synthetics, it can be a little more pricey. going to the dealer is outrageous. its like 80 to 90 or so. i would rather do it myself and save the money. fuel filters, every 15000.

Oil change - $80 dealer, $40 me; every 5k miles, since I tow; 7.5k miles for normal driving
Fuel Filters - $120 dealer, $35 me; every 10k miles, since I tow; 15k miles for normal driving

Fuel filters (and oil changes) are essential to the life of your diesel engine. This isn't like a gas engine where nothing bad will happen if they aren't changed; be sure to do the maintenance! :thumb:

Most of us like to change our own oil. Not onlt due to cost be we are sure of what goes in. I want what I pay for......if ya get the hint
Have used Castrol Hypuron in past for apx. $70.00 in oil.
Currently using Amsoil for apx. $110.00
Use a GOOD oil filter. IH or Ford preferred!
I'm starting to change oil at 5k but will check oil analysis to see where I am at for curiosity. I change fuel filters at 15K

$50 Do it myself. I also agree, use a OEM filter (Ford, Racor, New purolators etc).
