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
