Bought my 01 with 255K miles on her. Since I have changed oil once before summer and once before winter.. average around 5K miles between seasons... Change fuel filter before winter change. 7.3L has 279k miles on it. Stock H2O pump and fuel pump. New injectors were installed before I bought the truck. Stock Turbo... Last mechanic visit... all cylinders were showing good compression and turbo was still making good boost. Replaced CPS 2 summers ago. The Transmission is very tired, saving now for a BTS, then new paint and Turbo and Injectors... Then maybe a couple tunes from DP.

Stick with a popular name brand oil-Delo-Delvac-Rotella-Valvoline-MC. 15W-40 if you never really see cold weather... If you live in a cold climate ya might think about a 5W-40... Really helps with early morning cold startups. What ever U do, don't skimp on oil filters... Always spin on a Good Oil Filter... MY top 6... Amsoil-Fleetguard-M1-Wix-Baldwin-K&N--MC is right there as well. Clean Fresh oil is the life blood of this Great Engine.

Look into a coolant filter and maybe switch to Red ELC antifreeze... no need to add any additives after that.

There is another post like this wiht someone with 700K, but I can't remember if they had done a rebuild or not. I personally have just hit the 200K mark and plan to take it 600K+ without rebuild! I do my oil at every 5K, fuel filter every 15K. Just replaced the idler pully along with the belt. Then the new belt pointed out some other issues I'm gearing up to take on, I have a water/coolant leak somewhere (still looking for it) and my steering pump is on its last thread of life (please hold out one more week *Fingers crossed*)

Other than small stuff OUTSIDE the motor going bad this 7.3 and 02 F250 is an amazing combo of simplicity and reliability! Even when the motor finally does go 6 feet under I will just rip it out and rebuild. 7.3L for life!

7.3L Stroken 4 life!!!

My 02 has 859,000 miles, a friend of mine has 820,000 on his 02. Both trucks run synthetic motor oil, FS2500 by pass filtration, BTS Tranny's, and 6position Cale's burns. How about this little fact, my 02 broke down on the road the first time at 824,305 miles. A bad new replacement IPR was the problem. now that is why it is named 'Old Reliable".

That is incredible. You think you'll make it to the million mark? I've read good things about that bypass system. I may check into that myself. How many miles do you go in between oil changes with your bypass system, and what kind of syn oil are you using?

The million miles is the goal, and yes i think they both have a good chance. 86% of the way there. The oil change interval is 20K, with Rotella synthetic. I have used Schaeffers when I can keep it in stock. They built good motors at the Indy plant.

My 2000 E350 Van has a whopping 12,100.00 original miles on it.
It's just breaking-in now.

It's my Florida Home Ride and I'm really enjoying it.

I'm running Amsoil synth. front to back

I have a 35 main tank and a TF 27 Gal. Aft Axle tank for 62 gal. total.

Just right to get me and my family out of Florida in case of a serious Hurricane.

I've got an '03 with 125,000. My FIL has a '96 with well over 500,000 and an '02 with somewhere in the high 200,000's. He runs a roofing company and those trucks rarely move without a trailer attached. The abuse his trucks put up with is the reason I bought one over a Duramax.

Well it looks like nobody tops HighwayPrisoner so far. Do you guys think synthetic oil is a necessity to make it to 800k, or regular oil changed at 5k intervals?

I would say, a good bypass filtration to keep the oil clean, filtering as much as possible is a big factor. The driver is another big factor. I definately worked my truck, and has many modifications. The abuse was kept to a minimum, but sometimes it would teach a lesson or two. The best fluids etc. offer somewhat better protection for the long haul.

My uncle's '96 7.3 has 360,000 on it. It's been worked like a DOG it's entire service life and hasn't had any issues with the motor (although I think it's been through a couple trannys). All it's ever had done on it is regular oil changes.
