Re: 1st Oil Change V8...1.5 months old, 4k+ miles...M1 Synthetic...advice???

We just bought a used 2011 Laredo, 5.7 with QTII with 22K miles. The dealer says that the MDS system is the reason to change oil every 6mo or 8K miles. I plan to change over to Amsoil 5W20 at the 5K mile point on this existing oil change. And I was planning to change the oil annually or 8K miles whichever comes first. Has anyone had experience with going longer than 6 months and having a problem with factory warrantee?

Since I only put about 6k miles a year on my car, I think I'm going to use plain old Pennzoil 5W-20 conventional oil, along with a Purolator Pure One oil filter every 6 months. I doubt using synthetic would yield much of an increase in mpg.

Regardless, saved receipts from supplies are all that is needed for maintenance work not completed at the dealership in regards to warranty issues.

Changing my oil myself and using synthetic IS my lifetime warranty.

Re: 1st Oil Change V8...1.5 months old, 4k+ miles...M1 Synthetic...advice???

So I just did my first oil change at 8,000 miles and changed to synthetic oil (I have the 5.7). Is there a reason why most people on this thread changed their oil well before that? I feel like I am missing something
Thanks
