I am new to owning a diesel, what are you using, grade and brand motor oil? Do you change by the mile or the computer? Same for the trans filter/fluid? how often on the fuel filter? any other tips would be greatly appreciated. I have 226,000 mules of my gas 5.3 and expect to get many more on this 06.

I change my oil when the computer says 10% or so, and I change fuel/oil/trans spin on filter at the same time, the best fuel filter is the AC/Delco or Racor, as for Oil filter I use WIX or Fleetguard, and for Transmission the best is an Allison or Wix

I use Chevron Delo 400 5w40 Synthetic

I do a twice yearly oil change, once in the fall, and once in the spring/summer which is about what the oil change interval seems to be. I run AMSOIL CJ-4 synthetic
