Purchased van new in 1997
15k installed Amsoil 15-40
every 5k the filter was replaced and topped off with the 2 quarts of oil lost with the filter. Continued to do this till 500k.
At 500k all the oil was drained from the motor and new injectors were installed
So I decided to now change all the oil every 100k while continuing the 5k filter changes.

So, you have a diesel with a 2qt oil filter right? That explains a lot, but 100K is still plenty of miles on the oil. Do you take oil samples?

That's a bummer. Had to get a tow myself a few months ago. Hope it's nothing serious. AAA Premium?
