3.0 Duramax Diesel oil and oil filter?


Recommended Posts

I recently bought a 3.0 duramax diesel over the summer.

 

I'm new to the diesel game lol.....so I was wondering what some of you boys run on your diesel trucks in regards to oil and oil filter(something with good micron rating)?  

 

Any help would be much appreciated.

Those that spent millions on testing and now put their money where their mouth by providing a 5 year / 100,000 mile warranty suggest  PF66 filter and 7 qt of one of these:

There is plenty of info on this forum discussing exactly what you're asking.  Take a look around.

I actually did....nothing popped up....must have not typed the correct keywords.....went through pages.....it's why I created this thread.

Just follow the OLM.

That's what it's there for. 

Those providing the warranty think it's ok.

No need to second guess them.

 

No need to do early changes.

 

Depending on how its used that might be less than 5000 and might be more
