    Yes, MAX. I would only go 5k on the best oils though. I think my summer oil will be in better shape.

    I am not sure, I PM'd him asking him where he's at hoping he would see an email and haven't heard back.

    I had TSB 14-0134 done. Truck would only make noise going from park to drive and continued to get worse. Shifting to reverse was always very harsh.

    The paper work does not give part numbers but says on comments "diagnosed and replaced valve body pre tsb 14-0134. reprogram relearn retest all quite"

    According to the TSB sheet, which can be found in pdf form on Google, gives three part numbers for this according to your build date. My build date is 3.3 and the sheet says for that FL3Z-7A100-E - Main control assembly (build date 3-1 - 3-15). The other two parts are separator plates, I am not sure why the separator plate is not all the same part number?

    No more buzz and going to reverse is a lot better.

    To me main control assembly sounds like electronic, computer, not valve body? or maybe that is the name for the whole valve body? Can anyone confirm? I will try to confirm part number at the dealership

    From my parts guy - "The 7A100 indeed is a complete valve body assembly." Not sure why they don't call it a valve body assembly instead of main control assembly.

    So the dealer replaced by complete valve body, not just the separator plate.

    Plugs:

    Here are original plugs from my 14' model. They look pretty good, some carbon around and are still gapped at 0.030, maybe up to 0.031. The stock boots were fine.

    These plugs have 5300 miles and about 10 months driving. I may re-use these actually.

    New plugs went in at 0.028 and di-electric grease on plug and boot(very light coating) and torqued down to 11ft-lbs. No anti seize used.

    Only complain on stock plugs was at cold start, there would be a slight knock/miss on idle. I could tell cause truck would shimmy a bit, nothing major or to be concerned about. The new plugs seemed to have fixed that for now.

    The plugs in picture are in order from each cylinder they were pulled from.

    Had the truck for a year now.

    I have had zero problems ever so far. No misfire, no wrenches, no anything. Hope it stays that way.

    TBN is Total Base Number. TBN is the ability of the oil to resist contamination and acid formation. Oil starts out with a High Base Number meaning it is on the Alkali side of PH. As acids and contaminates form the number drops. ASL starts out at 12.6 TBN but the additive package is purposely designed such that the number will drop rather quickly to the numbers you see in your report, and then level out at about that level for the remainder of the oil life. As long as the TBN is above 1 the oil still is still able to perform it's function as it relates to the resistance to acids.

    Viscosity of ASL starts out at about 10.4 @100c. Most common 5W-30 oils on the market start out in the 9-10 range and quickly shear to the 6 - 7 range. Your viscosity is still at 8.6 plenty of Viscosity to resist wear. 8.6 is the starting viscosity of Amsoil ALM 5W-20, so basically you have sheared down 1 viscosity grade. As long as your Viscosity at 100c stays above 6.1 it is fine. Below 6.1 drops it more than 2 viscosity grades and that is the minimum industry acceptable standard. My past reports have shown that the viscosity will not drop much more (if any) and your fuel dilution will likely not climb much more either. I get the same dilution at 5k miles as I had at 2.5k miles. Like I said the dilution is not linear.

    I would recommend changing oil at 5k miles if you are not comfortable going longer. Sample at the time of the oil change. If you are comfortable (I am) just resample at 5k miles and wait to see what the results are. I will get there long before you do, so I will share my latest reports of 2.5k and 5k miles on the oil when I get the 5k mile report done within the next month or so.

    You can read more about Typical Lubricant Guidelines in the Oil Analyzers Users Guide to Oil Analysis Services starting on about page 11 of that document.

    The Technical Properties for the virgin ASL 5W-30 can be found in the data bulletin at: http://www.amsoil.com/lit/databulletins/g2880.pdf You can call me if you would like to discuss over the phone.

    You alive Trailboss? I know you are, but I'd love to hear any results with different oils AMD the max mileage you went. And any results that showed the oil was done. I always read about results at 2k and 5k. Do we have any tests done that shows failure? Or any tests at 7k? or more.

    Wooboost, I will try and find my spark plugs and take a picture (to compare). I changed mine in the summer (20K miles in two years) and installed the "colder" NGKs (6510s) as a test. I plan to pull those next summer and see what how the NGK performed and how the engine behaved with one range cooler.
