ATF and FuelFilter pictures, look normal?

All I did was pull the stick out slap it on the papertowel and hold it with my left hand and snap a picture.

Here is the fuel filter that I just pulled out, looks much blacker then the one I put in lol but is this normal looking?

The main reason I'm asking is because when I bought the truck, the guy said it had been dealer maintained and the person got rid of it b/c the warranty was up... I got it at 103,000 miles. After researching on diesel sites I'm thinking he was more full of &$*# then knowledge about my truck. (Told me the batteries were newer, they are failing) tires were not at 80%... more like 15%, and I'm just double checking everything asap! thanks in advance.

I just changed the fuel filter, I have done oil changes, soon to be doing the differential fluid.

Do you mean change the tranny fluid? I know ford says NOT TO, but people do... I think maybe just change the fluid in my tranny/and coolant and I should be set after all that!

Your owners manual should tell you when and what milageon the trans but I would recommend every 35,000. At this point since you are not sure,n ow or soon would be good.that way you are sure and can continue on a reguler maintance program.
Changing fluids is cheap insurance for longevity.
