    [​IMG][/IMG]So I take my truck to the dealer for oil changes, I get really good deals on them so might as well. This past time they tell me I need the injectors cleaned, air filter and cabin filter. So I say good time to get my afe pro dry but when I went to replace it the thing looks like new... its not a big deal but now I have my doubts about the dealership I know they go off of miles on most things and mine only has 14,500. what do you guy recommend in the future as far a regular maintainance?

    Well, I wouldnt be getting my injectors clean at 14k thats for sure. Just go off what the manual states for regular maint. & stay away from the dealership. If you can, do most maint yourself. There plenty of DIY on here to help you.

    Oil change every 5k.

    Filter check it every 5k (or clean it if you get the pro dry). If it looks dirty clean/replace it, if not put it back.
