You did make sure the oil you're using is CJ-4 rated right? (it would be Rotella T Triple Protection NOT regular Rotella)

Copied from HERE

It’s important to resist any temptation to use anything but CJ-4 oil in an EPA 2007-compliant engine, because the higher levels of sulfur, ash and phosphorus in CI-4 PLUS oils may cause problems with the exhaust aftertreatment devices. Using a CI-4 PLUS oil in 2007 vehicles could cause increased plugging of aftertreatment devices, which could lead to reduced fuel efficiency and higher maintenance. All currently licensable categories, including API CF-4, CG-4, CH-4, CI-4, and CI-4 PLUS are not forward compatible to API CJ-4 due to the chemical limits for ash, phosphorous and sulfur defined by API CJ-4.

I changed mine this weekend, and found the Wally World had their Rotella on sale for $7.28/gallon. This was in Louisburg, NC. They even had a pallet of it sitting out in the aisle (which is very unusual for Wal-Marts around here).

That sounds cheap for CJ-4 oil :shrug: I expected it to be about the same as synthetics.
