First Oil Change - Basic Questions
Performing my first oil change on my Duramax this weekend.
Going with AMSOIL 15-40 AMETP-EA and Oil Filter. Getting it locally for a good price.
Do people generally go 10k or 15k between oil changes with this product? Most I've ever gone on any vehicle has been 5k, so this is new to me.
I've also seen it mentioned about the Allison Spin-On (Tranny Filter). How often does this need to be changed and is it a simple change? I'm hoping if its a simple change that I don't need to change the tranny fluid as well.
Any other regular changes I need to be aware of? The fuel filter was changed about 4k miles ago so I should be good on that. I'm planning on doing an upgrade to that as well in the near future.
