Is this oil over-kill...... Valvoline Premium Blue Extreme 5w40 synthetic.

Not overkill. That's what a lot of people are switching to that used to use Shell Rotella T6. I have 3 cases of the Valvoline oil sitting in my garage waiting for my first and second oil changes.

If I'm changing my oil every 5000 miles, would someone recommend another oil? I like to do 5000 mile intervals.

The Valvoline is fairly inexpensive, compared to some other brands. It's synthetic so it could go longer than 5k miles. But if you want to change it at 5k the lower price makes that seem reasonable.

I'm not sure if I'm going to do 5K oil change intervals or just do it when the truck tells me to.

Thus far I have done two oil changes on my 2016 with Valvoline PBE 5w40. The first at 1100 miles, and the second at 5500 miles. I plan to supercede the IOLM and do 5000 mile oil changes with PBE from here on out. This way I can do oil changes on my schedule.

I buy PBE when its on sale at Napa for $19/gallon.

Motorcraft filters and PBE now.

I used dino the first two change (factory fill & free dealership change) @ 5,000 miles. Switched to Rotella T6 and let the IOLM to tell me when to change after that. When Ford came out with their own oil spec, due to the CK release, I switched to the PBE.

X2 here. My first oil change using Valvoline PBX will be happening in about 2000 more miles, prior to that, I also used T6 and changed every 5000 miles, and will continue to change every 5K.
2015 Powerstroke.

x3 - NAPA right now jacked up the price on it, but I was able to get the $19 a gal deal on three gallons of it on Amazon. They shipped it free since I have a prime membership.

I always like to keep my next oil change supplies on hand.

Typically I follow the IOLM and the weather. I plan on doing my next one a little early so I am not trying to change it at -30F since I now do not have a heated garage to do one in.

Did you mean $32 per gallon? I'm seeing $62 for a case of 3 gallon jugs.

That's 20.66 per gallon. Still not a bad price.

Agreed, I recently made a purchase from Amazon for that very same case of oil. Until Napa puts it back on sale I'll use Amazon.
