At 4:28 of the video "Our Power Train warranty is 5 years/60,000 miles--the engine specifically being a Power Stroke is 5 years/100,000 miles"
At 7:25 of the video "...oil targets which is 10,000 mile oil changes for this vehicle"
I am at 49% oil life remaining at ~5,000 miles, so my truck seems to be tracking to the 10K oil change intervals. I was going to do my first oil change at 5,000 miles, but now after seeing this video I will do it at 7,500 miles.
I had seen this on a previous YouTube video "The design life of this engine is 150,000 miles", I think from the same guy in this video. I put on ~22k per year, keep my trucks 8-9 years, so I have historically gone well past the 150k mileage mark. So what does everyone think about this statement? We have major engine work and expenses at 150k, or the engine is shot and needs replacement at 150k? With these trucks being military grade aluminum it seems that now the truck body will outlast the engine life.
