jomac11, I would really be concerned more about the brand of filter they are using than the brand of oil!!

The filter they use is a valvoline filter. I have looked it over and it is the same thing as a motorcraft one. FWIW, I have quit taking my truck there and am doing my own oil changes now, because their price has gotten out of hand...

i paid andy (sarge261) ~125 out the door for 14 quarts of rotella 5/40 syn. figured i'd try and give him some kind of business since he helped me out a couple times before that. i think i could have done it for around 90 myself. but it was cold out, too...

i have to have a really good reason, and trust the guy, to let anybody else even drain my oil. international fuel filters are high dollar in upstate NY. ~36 bucks just today.

One thing nobody has mentioned is about using 15w40 oil during the winter. Not a good idea unless you want problems down the road. I change my oil to 10w30cj or ci rated for diesels that I get from my local Ford guys for the colder months. I use 15W40 in the summer only when I do most of my towing. Be careful about filters because they are not all created equal. I also installed a Fomoto valve after my second oil change. It makes the job amazingly simple. It's a lot easier to open a valve instead of removing a plug to drain oil.

As for the air filter, if it's the stock Donaldson one, then don't change it until the filter minder shows air restriction. If you don't trust the filter minder, pull it off the intake tube, put the nozzle in your mouth and apply a bit of natural vacuum. if it moves, it works. Reset it, put it back into the intake tube and forget it. It will let you know when to change your air filter. Otherwise you spending money for nothing. Here those filters are over $100

Oil change at Hemborg Ford is 59 bucks with coupon. Was going to go with syn. this oil change but I just can't let this coupon die. They are going to let me show them how to use my Fumoto valve since they don't know what one is.

Too funny.... These valves should be available for the gassers too. I don't even use a drain pan anymore I just drain directly into spare jugs. Haegly ever spill a drop. Best 30 bucks I spent on a mod.

I buy my oil at Walmart (Mobil-1 Turbo Diesel truck oil) and bring it to our Ford dealer. It cost me about $50 for them to change it for me (including the cost of the oil filter). Cost about $150 when I get fuel filters done with the oil change.

My truck stays out doors, changing the oil outside in North Pole Alaska would be a real trick right now. Its better for me to take it to the dealer for service. I just don't want to pay for the FOMOCO synthetic $46/gallon. Mobil-1 cost about $23/gallon at Walmart. And I dont have to worry about where to get rid of 4 gallons of used oil.

Doubtful, they have been there since I started driving 9 years ago (maybe longer). They have 2 bays and I almost always have to wait because both are full.
