Been reading about this. Does the factory put a synthetic blend in when it builds the truck?

Any reason to use the same when changing the oil or is it better to go to full synthetic? Yeah I know there are about 10,000 threads on this.

i was told it came with a blend,not 100% on that ,chuck at sullivan bros told me when i purchased it new,after my first change i have been using full synth castrol 5/30.
i do know of another friend of a friend that uses standard oil that has tapping issues on start up. go with the synth change it every 7000 miles just my 2 cents
so it was just dealer bs,just change it out and go with what you feel comfortable with.
i dont go there anymore he cheated my wife and stepdaughter on a mitsubishi.
he pushed the paper work thru before i could look at it
then i recommend following the instructions of a proper course of action in zoomzoom's avatar then :thumbsup:
i just wont spend anymore money there,thats just as good,it stings longer,
as word of mouth can travel farther than any commerical or raido ad
