Someone come and kick my [email protected]@!

Changed my oil today. Realized it has been almost 10,000 miles on conventional oil. I have been working 6 days a week for the last 5 months and just plain ole forgot.

Sometimes it's more important to feed your family than your truck.

Just wondering, did your 'change oil' light come on to remind you or did you have an "oh ****" moment?

i would change it a bit more frequently for your next couple intervals just for a little overkill. maybe every 2 or 3K miles. i was reading the manual for my dmax and it said that under the correct driving conditions its alright to go for a year without changing oil. sounded strange to me so i stick with 4 to 5K mile intervals.

You should be fine.
I will also agree the family is more important then the truck. You can always buy another truck. Or fix the one you have now.
Now on that note. I have had several that I have owned for atleast 2 years that I either changed the oil once or never changed it at all. This was also conventional.
Was it good for it, no, did they quit no. Being that you did this once, and it's still not unreasonable to run 10k if you use good oil. Your fine.

With the quality of oil today versus ten years ago, I would say it is just fine. Run a quality oil like Delvac or Delo and you will be just fine. Synthetic might be a better route for you if you have too many Oh **** moments in a row.

I change mine every 6 thousand. Just got a little side tracked with work and hunting. I know it should be fine just like above mentioned cheap insurance.
