Since I've had my 2500 Cummins, I have been doing oil changes at the
dealer. Normally, I used to either do it myself, or go to one of those
guick change places.
But this Dodge dealer here in Phoenix only charges $30 for an oil
change on a diesel. Meanwhile all of the other dealers here charge
more, a lot more!
Has anyone else had their oil changed on a Cummins at a dealer and how
much did you pay?
Great article and info! What people fail to see is that today's engines are
more reliable, powerful and technologically superior to the engines of even
10 years ago. Oil is the life beat of any engine proper type is imperative
and you really need to be anal on changing the oil too. There are some draw
backs with technology on today's engines they are costlier to maintain
however, if properly maintained on the average provide far better service
life that the older engines of 20 years ago.
I know some will argue and before you do contact Pat Goss at
http://www.patgosscarworld.com/ probably the fore most expert in the
automotive field he will set you strait. The man knows everything about
almost every vehicle and manufacturer. He has never been wrong in all the
years I have been listening to him both on the radio and on Motor Week. I
know this looks like an advertisement but the truth is I just which I knew
what the man has forgotten.
$60.00 at University Car Wash in Fort Worth, TX. Comes with a free "the
works" car wash (wash, wax, interior dusting and vacuum). They grease the
suspension and do a courtesy check on all your fluids while changing the oil
and filter, topping off whatever needs topping off. Of course they will try
to sell you a gear oil and transmission fluid change as well as an air
filter regardless of the condition of those things. The odd thing is they
are a Texaco Express Lube station and they use Shell Rotella oil on the
diesels. It's a drive thru oil change and you stay in the vehicle. They have
air conditioning ducts mounted on booms that they put up to your open window
during hot weather. They have a TV in the bay and you can listen on your
stereo if you want to watch it.
