When I worked for rollins Leasing we had a bunch of E-350 cube vans. They changed the oil about every 8-10k. Those engines got nasty. I changed the oil in mine about every 4-5k and never had a problem.
Make sure you use a quality oil, Shell Rotella-T 15-40 is about the best diesel oil out there. The only other oil I would recomend for it is Mack Bulldog oil. Both are top of the line.
Thanks for the tip. I'll keep on top of it. :thumb:
