As far as the 6.0 engine goes, it's every 8000km for Canadians (we're considered severe use). I know some guys change it by the hour meter at every 200 hrs. The hour meter method is what we use on our equipment at work as idling time is supposed to be taken into account. I change mine every 7500km because it's easier to keep track on the odometer...going to change at 67500,next at 75000, then 82500, 90000 and so on. Not sure what the 6.4 PSD suggests though...can't be much different.

every 3-5k miles, and then once you make the switch to synthetics you can get away with 7500 miles usually

ford recommends severe duty service which is 8000km/200eng hrs/6mths for oil changes,also don't forget to replace your fuel filters every second oil change or 400hrs,as they may not cover fuel system repairs if proof of filter service can't be provided.

a moments silence for the shelbyx,i hope her new owner enjoys as much.
