Using good oil ordered in the mail, or crap oil off the shelf at the store?
Plan on installing an oil bypass filter?

Do the instructions need to be Army proof?

Right from the factory out of the owners manual.

04 - Vehicle Quick Reference/Maintenance Schedules/Description
MAINTENANCE SCHEDULES - 6.7L CUMMINS TURBO DIESEL
CAUTION: Failure to perform the required maintenance items may result in damage to the vehicle.
Proper operation of four-wheel drive vehicles depends on tires of equal size, type and circumference on each wheel. Any difference in tire size can cause damage to the transfer case. Tire rotation schedule should be followed to balance tire wear.



At Each Stop for Fuel
Check the engine oil level about 15 minutes after a fully warmed engine is shut off. Checking the oil level while the vehicle is on level ground will improve the accuracy of the oil level reading. Add oil only when the level is at or below the ADD or MIN mark.
Check the windshield washer solvent and add if required. When refilling the washer fluid reservoir, take some washer fluid and apply it to a cloth or towel and wipe clean the wiper blades, this will help blade performance.
Once a Month
Check tire pressure and look for unusual wear or damage.
Inspect the batteries and clean and tighten the terminals as required.
Check the fluid levels of coolant reservoir, brake master cylinder, and transmission and transfer case (if equipped), add as needed.
Check Filter Minder™. Replace air cleaner filter element if necessary.
Check all lights and all other electrical items for correct operation.
Drain water from the fuel filter.
At Each Oil Change
Change the engine oil filter.
Inspect the exhaust system.
Inspect the brake hoses.
Inspect the U-Joints (if equipped) and front suspension components.
Check the automatic transmission fluid level.
Check the manual transmission fluid level.
Check the coolant level, hoses, and clamps.
Lubricate outer tie rod ends.
Lubricate Front Drive Shaft Fitting
Inspection and service should also be performed anytime a malfunction is observed or suspected. Retain all receipts.



Oil Change Indicator System
Your vehicle is equipped with an engine oil change indicator system. This system will alert you when it is time to change your engine oil by displaying the words “Oil Change Required�? on your Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC). The engine oil change indicator system is duty cycle based, which means the engine oil change interval may fluctuate depending on your personal driving style. Driving styles such as frequent stop and go type driving can increase the frequency of the engine oil change. This is the result of more frequent regeneration of the exhaust aftertreatment system, which can decrease the life of the engine oil. Failure to change the engine oil per the maintenance schedule can result in internal engine damage.

For information on resetting the Oil Change Indicator message, refer to “Oil Change Required – If Equipped,�? under “Personal Settings (Customer Programmable Features)'�? in the “Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC)�? Section of this manual.



OIL CHANGE INDICATOR - RESET
To reset the “Oil Change Required�? indicator (after performing the scheduled maintenance) refer to the following procedure:

1. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position (Do not start engine).
2. Fully depress the accelerator pedal slowly three times within 10 seconds.
3. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF/LOCK position.


NOTE: If the indicator message illumination when you start the vehicle, the “Oil Change Required�? indicator did not reset. If necessary repeat this procedure.


Perform Service Indicator
Your vehicle will require emissions maintenance at a set interval. To help remind you when this maintenance is due, the Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) will display “Perform Service�?. When the “Perform Service�? message is displayed on the EVIC it is necessary to have the emissions maintenance performed. Emissions maintenance includes replacing the Closed Crankcase Ventilation (CCV) filter element, cleaning or replacement of the EGR Cooler, and cleaning or replacement of the EGR Valve.

See your local authorized dealer to have the “Perform Service�? message cleared and reset.



PERFORM SERVICE INDICATOR - RESET
The “Perform Service�? message will display on the EVIC each time you turn the ignition switch to the ON/RUN position to indicate a emission maintenance is required. To reset the “Perform Service�? indicator system (after performing the scheduled maintenance) refer to the following procedure:

1. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position (Do not start engine).
2. Press and release the brake pedal two times.
3. Fully depress the accelerator pedal slowly two times within 10 seconds.
4. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF/LOCK position.


NOTE: If the indicator message illumination when you start the vehicle, the “Perform Service�? indicator did not reset. If necessary repeat this procedure.

If you go to CarboniteCummin.com you can download a complete shop manual for the 2008 6.7. It is 10000 pages and took me about a half hour to download but most of it should apply to the 2007 also. It is a private persons website not a commercial one.

I've had my truck for a year now, still have the emissions on the truck. I do my oil, oil filter and air filter every 10000km fuel filter every 20000km my mechanic laughed at me for doing my fuel filter every 10000km because it was so clean (good clean fuel helps that) and I do my tranny filters,full flush and my differentials once a year. So you can draw your own conclusions from this
