Looking for some general maintenance info

Hello,
I recently purchased a 95 F250 PSD. I am looking for information on how to do an oil change change, flush transmission & etc. At one time I saw a really nice website that had very detailed written/pics. I thought I got the link from here. I cannot find it for the life of me. I have searched the forums and tabs with no success. I really appreciate the help.

Use Motorcraft oil and filters, change it every 5k religiously, i change my FF every 2nd oil change, and my air every third. If you want a tranny flush, take it to a good shop, money well spent vs. the headache.

Nothing at all wrong with motorcraft filters tons of us use them.

Do not let anyone "power flush" your trans just drop the pan change the filter and put 8qts in.

Kinda hard to read last page, but what that chart shows is the FL1995 filter has a 68% efficiency @ 20 microns!!! all the others (except FL910) are 80%-95%.

some of those are TINY filters, so how is our HUGE filter THAT inefficient?! and the Mobil 1's are around $12!

Mobil 1 and K&N oil filters' efficiency ratings are on the high 90%'s @ 10 or less microns!!!

Good info, still how many PS have gone 100k's of miles using them.

That said I'll look into Mobil 1's.

Do you know how the bypass works in those filters? Total filter area etc?
