Recommended oil change interval

Sorry, I can't take the time to scroll through the forums for the answer to this as I am on my iPhone at Valvoline. My truck did not have the book, what is the recommended oil change interval for the truck in my signature?

It depends on the severity of your usage. I change mine every 5000 miles. A little excessive maybe, but it gives me a nice warm and fuzzy.

I think I just found on the Internet Cummins recommends 15k. I'll do it at 7500 to be safe.

Another vote for 10k here, new fuel filter, and tire rotation every time too. Kind of makes it easy just to do all three at the same time.

Once a year using Amsoil 15W40 and Amsoil EaO80 oil filter. I only do about 10,000 km a year on this truck. I know I could go far longer with oil analysis, but I spend one day each fall changing the oils on everything motorized in the family so I just do the 5.9 too.

WOW! I do mine every 5000 miles with royal purple and a good Donaldson Filter. Guess maybe I could start trying to get a little more out of it if I wanted

7500 when I used Delo. Since I have switched to the Valvoline blue, I go 10k.
