I'm running Rotella 15-40 oil, and the Napa translated oil filter. Motorkote oil additive every other oil change.

I forgot to add, I use Power Service additive sometimes, and ashless 2 stroke oil in my fuel at every fillup.

Re: new PSD owner, questions about additives and oil

What these guys said. Oil additives however are not a great thing for a powerstroke. Just run a quality oil and be done with it

Re: new PSD owner, questions about additives and oil

fuel additives are more important than oil additives.

Re: new PSD owner, questions about additives and oil

Ashless 2-stroke oil lubes and quiets the injectors.I think a 97 takes 12quarts/3gals of motor oil.
