Thanks Guys. The oil change at 20K miles went well. Wow when you let that drain plug come out 9 qts sure blasts out! Have a 16qt drain box to collect it all with ease. Pep Boys had both 5w-30 and 5w-40 but only had 6qts of the 40 so I had to purchase the 30 weight. Both weights do meet 229.51 which is needed for the diesel.
I do prefer a bottom drain except if its winter. I let it drain for about 1hr and it was still dripping.

No luck with the reset. The manual is a bit cryptic of course. Any insight?
