F250 diesel is almost 3 months old and had an oil change at 7600 (almost 9000 now). At the dealer $140.46. Book says 10,000 max but an alert popped at around 7400, probably due to towing. Onboard computers know all today, which is a good thing.

What makes since to me is to change oil & filter every Spring before first trip !!!
Even thow it may only have 2 or 3k miles on it !!!
I am sure not going to change it in the Fall,,, and then let it set for 6 months,,,
so I can change it again ??? If you change it every 2 or 3k miles,,, maybe you could change the filter every other time ??? But what the H,,, your only is saving $4
I am guessing our 2013 takes 7 Qts ???

Why not take a shower and put on yesterday's underwear? Of course you should change the filter every time you do an oil change.

You are right,,, but back in the day they only changed the filter every other time,,, of course the filter was much larger than what we use today !!!
And oil was changed every 3k !!!

I see there are many GM autos that use a filter that is the same size as my lawn tractor,,, that only holds about 2 Qts ???

If I were going to change oil every 2k,,, I would be tempted to change the filter ever other time !!!

Automotive oil filters have an "engineered" life of 3-5,000 miles. A little higher for automotive diesels. Any major brand has a by-pass valve but at that point you are not filtering anything. The problem is the oil left in the filter. Are you going to contaminate you new oil? Absolutely.
On big rigs depending on engine and use, we sample every 8-10k, Change filter, top off oil. Change oil (30-50 qts,)20-30k miles or if we get a funky sample.

I can buy Motorcraft filters for our F-150 & our V-10 for less than $4,,, Motorcraft filter for the EDGE is about $5.50,,, filters for my lawn tractors are $10 ???


One of my tractors says oil every 50 hours,,, and filter every 100 hours,,,
That is WAY to long for me !!!
