water seperator

Having been a diesel fan for years, i finally purchased an '02 psd. I'm not a gearhead. I think i know where the val ve is to drain the water from the seperator but i'm not sure.. can anyone tell me where it is and how to drain it... thanks
also any other maintanance that i should do? it had 95k miles
i replaced the air filter, did the oil change, and replaced the fuel filter.. have i missed anything else of importance? thanks again

On the back of the fuel filter housing, there is a yellow lever that is pointed towards the passenger side fender. Rotate the lever clockwise till it points at the rear of the truck(it will not go any farther). That opens and drains water from your fuel filter housing and will drain the fuel from the housing itself. Note- If you ever experience a fuel leak, there are two o-rings betwen this yellow lever and the filter housing that are USUALLY the culprits. Fairly easy to change if that ever happens. Oh, when you open the valve the fuela(and water) will drain out of a tube located on the passenger side of the engine. Locate this tube(metal) and add some type of tubing if you like to extend this outlet farther down so as to not get fuel everywhere when you drain the housing.

if the previous owner was using it for heavy towing i would check/change the rearend oil, and if you do that u might as well change the front(assuming its 4x4).......and u probably want to make sure the tranny fluid is still good

I would second the recommendation on the tranny fluid and diffs. I just bought my 01 back in Oct, and the first thing I did no matter what I was told, was change ALL the fluids, just so I knew they were good. I also went to the parts store, and bought a haynes manual. They are about 15 bucks, and I personnaly found that it has alot of good info. Location of stuff and how to fix alot of little things. Enjoy the truck. By the way nice boat!! What kind?? I am down in Key West, and do a little fishin myself (26 Walk series Pro-line) Enjoy the site!!!
