Its time for an oil change and i was wondering what is the best oil and filters ..etc to use for it :ford:
I run regular 15w40 Rotella-T with 5000 mile changes. Blackstone Labs always tells me I can go longer when I have my oil tested, but I don't. My truck just rolled over 200,000 miles and I've had no oil related issues and my truck runs strong still... Original/Stock injectors, oil pumps, turbo, etc... It's all still good.While on this topic for oil change how many miles do you guys recommend changing the oil at right now I'm doing 5000 but I have had numerous people say that's too early
The off the shelf premium blue isn't the same oil in that article... Premium blue and the 5w40 are both now cj-4, unless you have a stash of ci-4you all might want to read this :

this article is why I switched to Valvoline Premium Blue FROM Shell Rotella T 15w40 .....
