What triggered my question was 15 or 16 oil changes in 26,000 miles? Really? That's an oil change every 1600-1700 miles or so. That's every 3-4 months if it was needed or not. Just seemed excessive, 16 oil changes equates to 80k-120k depending on the change interval 5,000-7,500 miles for most trucks.
Aside from coolant discussed here and transmission service mentioned, have you been diligent with fuel filters though? Maintenance is more than just oil changes on these trucks...
