Dumped my oil at 300 miles. I have done this with all my new vehicles for many years. Alot of people get real upset to here I wasted money like that. I paid 50 grand and Im worried about 70.00 dollars? Oil got dumped again at 1200 miles. Thats when the motor got relieved of its soot maufacturing process. Now it will go 5000-7500 depending on oil analysis. When the bypass gets on there maybe 25000+.

Dealer changed mine today with 2,647 miles. Service tech said I can go 5,000 miles until next change. They reset my EVIC and said it would notify me if i need to change it sooner than 5,000 miles due to idleing or heavy service usage (towing).

Get rid of that assembly oil and crap.


You dumped it out early, and your concerned about the soot so why run the cheapest oil you can find?


For $10-11 a gallion you can get Rottela or for $11-12 Valvoline.



The first thing you can do to cut down on the soot is to unplug the egr.
unplug the egr? thats it?? that sounds too easy!

What about it?
just tell them you had a cel on but it went off.
It will go off all by ti's self after a few starts or you could clear it.

A cel from the egr is so common it doesn't arouse any suspicious activity.

If you want to slow or stop the oil dilution you'll need to delete the DPF.


ps for once I agree with firedude,

I first changed my oil at 600 mi then at 2000mi then every 4k-5k. Dino oil is cheep at $10 a gal maybe after I get 50-100k on her I'll go 5-6k.

You can change your oil for less than the price of a tank of fuel
