Ford's severe service oil change interval is 3,000 miles. And since HEUI is so hard on engine oil, I consider everything the 7.3L does severe service!

I change mine every 3,000 and run Rotella standard 15W-40.

The answer to how often you need to change your oil is: It’s different for everybody.  3,000 to 5,000 is a safe bet, but how the truck is used will determine.

Check this out, and use a common sense approach.

Rottela does not make synthetic oil. They are legally allowed to call their conventional oil "synthetic" becasue of a loophole resulting from Castrol mislabeling their bottles and the courts allowing them to get away with it.
