What type of oil do you recommend for my 2005 6.6 Durmax. And should I change the fuel filter at every oil change.

Rotella T 15w40 is the standard for diesel engines. I would highly recommend changing the fuel filter every oil change.

Need to know if it is ok to run syn oil with the 1.8 turbo

yes perfectly ok ,i would use a turbo diesel oil thats suitable for diesel and petrol engines and the cheapest one at that then change oil every 6000 miles with a oil filter every third oil change ,Do not spend money on expensive boy racer market oil use what the trade uses something like shell rotella and do not be fooled by fancy adverts like liquid engineering and all that stuff these fancy long life oils cause more engine failures than any cheap oil which is changed at regular intervals to prevent a build up of internal clagg inside the engine

How do I change the oil on a 2003 excursion 6.0 diesel?

Hello , you will need 14qts of Diesel oil. Either Rotella or and high quality name brand oil ( Ceveron , Castrol ect ). A high quality Motorcraft filter is recommended , but a Fram will suffice as well. Its about $75.00 dollars to do it yourself , and about $100.00 at a Jiffy lube or a place like that. Thank you , Quinn Texada

What type of oil is best to use?

Cheapest synthetic is better than the most expensive standard oil. Walmart offer full synthetic, 5-quart containers of 5W and 10W-30 oil for about 17 bucks.

Either of those weights will serve you well - for 6,000 miles or so.
If you want to run for 10,000 miles, then a Mobile 1 full synthetic for a bit over double the price will serve well.

Suggest that you NEVER allow someone to sell you oil by the quart. The mark up is silly.
Suggest that 4 quart containers are NOT for cars... No car takes 4 quarts.

Suggest that 5 quart containers are good for buying and discarding oil - also cheaper. Check your local Walmart... then check ANY other retailer. Let us know if you can beat the price and container size advantage offered by Walmart.
