Since this really isn't a question, I'll just say: Yes, it should have some.

Im guessing its for your 2001??

If so I would recommend NOT using synthetic. The seals in those engines dont like synthetic causing them to leak badly. Ive always used Rotella or valvoline blue in the other trucks.

Wtf are you talking about? Almost everyone runs synthetic on this site and no one complains about leaking or burning oil.

Well I'm glad its been working for them. I was just giving my opinion from experience.

I run synthetic in my 3rd gen I have now but past 2nd gens didn't like it.
