Wink brian 91 foed 350

The battery guage is always on the low side,replaced batteries after leaving lihgts on seems to be slowly draining the battery new to diesels. Also, was told to flush the oil system told they felt the truck was running rich.

Thanks

I would have your alternator tested, that sounds like the problem. Who told you your truck is running rich and to flush your oil. The only time I flush is if I run way over on my mileage between changes, or switching to synthetic.
