How many miles/km between oil changes?
 
Bunch of dealers are telling me different things with the 5w-40 synthetic oil our 6.4's use, some are saying to go 5000km (roughly 3000 miles) others are telling me 7500km (4700 miles or so). Can anyone confirm this? They're also killing us up here in Canada with the oil change cost, most are saying nearly 200$ for a change but a local dealer in town said its 140$ for mine so I guess it'll have to do as I won't be changing it myself.

the truck will tell you keep an eye on the EVIC. it had indicated that i change the oil at 2500miles. i drove it hard the first 2500 miles went to the track twice so maybe that is the truck called for it early. i am at nearly 5k now and since it has been cold out i have been driving it easy and it has not called for a change yet. but it will come up on the evic.

second i changed it by myself. it was very very easy. i didnt even need to lift the truck. i just slid under it without a creeper. there is a cut out in the plastic shield for the oil drain and oil filter. 10 minute job...20 if your really slow.

Have you ever tired Great Canadian Oil Change or Mr Lube? They are both warranty approved and they have the right oil and filters for our rigs. I find they are usually $40 cheaper than the dealers and you are in and out in 10-15 min. I have used Great Canadian Oil Changed for the last 5 years and no issues whatsoever.
