    I checked the DIY article but it did not mention if anything needs a shot of lube. Should I be lubing anything while doing my regular 5k oil change?

    You don't need to lubricate anything at each oil change.

    Crack open your owners manual. It'll tell you where & when you need to lubricate.

    If you're looking for more things to do during an oil change, check all your fluids, check your air filter, check your tire pressure, crawl underneath the truck and look around and look for leaks, etc. Get used to how things are supposed to look, so when something does occur - you'll notice it.

    If you take it to the dealership you will need to lube your a#$ before you take it in.
