I usually run 15w40 but switched to the mystic 15w50 to see if it helped with oil consumption which it did. The recomended oil filter isnt very good but the powerstroke filter fits and is a much better filter. Currently running the stock filter as i

If there were any measurable difference between startup wear between 0w and 5/10w in warm climates you'd have to be a scientist to measure it. If cold oil damaged engines our northern buddies would have worn out engines in a few winters no matter th
Detail and Wax
With over a year on the wax, I'd want to just start over. Wash with Dawn and go over with a nano skin sponge, wipe down with IPA, and either just use your Collinite or go ahead and use ReJex, wait until the next day, and then top off with your wax.

I always put 5 quarts in my 4.5-quart-specified engine and now I'm up to 220k on it with no issues. It uses that 1/2 quart over 10k/one year change intervals.

Seems like this topic will never die .... Most of you just do not understand how the warranty system works, or (in particular) the Magnuson/Moss Warranty Act. Check the FTC website; that's the very first place you need to start in understanding

Not sure where to ask this but I guess its preventive equipment maintenance. What do you look for in a heavy duty RV/trailer tarp for storing over winter? Kicking the horse trailer out of the barn for some other winter projects and need a good cover.

Whatever it takes to get it to the "full" line. If that means 6.7 qt, then that's what I'd put in.

I wouldn't fill it to over the full mark. If 6.5 quarts does it, then that's easy for next time -- get another 6 quarts and you still have the .5 left.
