I did post I changed my oil 23 times in 12+ years, rotate tires(all 5) every 5K, they dry rot before wearing out ….. just have other interests than knowing every nook and cranny on my F 150.....but I know where to ask important questions like here and these guys ;-) I'm not really that bad..... still trying to find out if the '08's do have an OLM, even asked on F150online.com and they aren't sure.....da fuq ? cheers

Not knowing the driving conditions, I'd probably run it to 5K miles, and forget about the year. It could easily go over a year under the right driving conditions.

Oh, I do need more brains. What an knucklehead! You can't read my mind. Sometimes I can't read my mind. I forgot to mention I was referring to the OLM. Forget the OLM. Not your engine. My sincere apologies. I think you should constantly think of your engine every 3K miles.

stop.....Gebo there's a small place to the right of the steering column, about an inch high by 3" wide on the dash that shows the mpg etc. EXCEPT on the FX4 models, why ?, I have no idea It's just blocked with a piece of plastic on my FX4 that might be where the OLM could be read..... that's why I asked you guys cheers
