General Questions

Just bought a 96 F-350 with 7.3 powerstroke, this is my first Ford ever owned. Need help.
1. Where is the fuel filter located?
2. What grade oil and name brand?
3. What temp. sould the EGT guage read in normal driving or pullin a load?

I'm sure I will have many questions later, but for now this will do.

the fuel filter is right under your engine cover in the center, valley of the motor. Look down below and youll see mine, its a black round cap / canister type filter, sorry i dont have the same engine cover on for you to use as a reference, but the filter is right behind that engine cover. And for oil, shell rotella t 15w40 is all my trucks seen in its life! I run between 400-500 egt after turbo driving and around 600-700 will towing back roads, both numbers drop when cruising on the highway. Good Luck and

Let as much diesel drain out of the filter as you can and there should be enough left in the bowl to start if there isn't you must have spilled a lot, but that's all i do, just let the fuel drip out of the filter then put the new one in. when your putting the new one in don't push to hard or you will splash a lot out. hope that helps some.
