coal_burner - what was your sampling method?

My sample was taken at about the 1/3 mark while draining the oilpan. The engine was hot immediately after about 25 miles of freeway driving.

No 5000 mile oil change?
Interesting that you selected Mobil 1, which is not approved for that engine (although I'm sure you know that part), and skipped the 5000 mile oil change.

Well the missed 5,000 mile oil change was kind of an accident. While glancing through my manual I saw that an oil change was only necessary at 10,000 mile intervals, I completely missed the part where it said change oil at 5,000 and 10,000 odo. readings. My bad
The oil I used was the best one I could find at my local Murray's automotive. My owners manual said that the oil I use should have some or all of the following certifications......
The Mobil1 Truck&SUV had the most matching certs so I bought it.
According to my owners manual, I did use an oil that is approved in my car.

BTW. I forgot to mention, my TBN reading was 4.5 .
