Re: What oil to use in my 183,000 6.0

there in amarillo, you can probably stick with 15w40 just fine, but as it gets colder you may find that a thinner oil helps quite a bit. lot of guys go with full synth 10w30 or 5w40 for diesels. i use 5w40 year round.
even if you go with 15w40, if you can find a deal on synthetic, 6.0s really seem to like synth.

just be sure it's got the API CJ4 rating. CK4 is fine too

here's one that says CK4, which exceeds the specs of CJ4, so its ok to use if you find it on sale or whatnot:

I've heard that the 6.0 doesn't like 15w40 oil. Something to do with injector issues. Can anyone confirm this?
