New here

I just bought a 95 Powerstroke crewcab 4wd F350 with 356k miles on it. i bought it for $2100
I dont know anything about diesels, just that they run on diesel.

i need to know a few things.

the previous owner said it needed a tune up.
So what kinda tune up does it need, sparkplugs?Sparkplug Wires?

is it the same as gas?

No plugs or plugwires.

We'll get that out of the way nicely, in a hurry.
