Barn Find

Just got my hands on a 2000 F250 with the 7.3. It has been setting in storage for the past 10 years and has only 16000 miles on it. Since it has been setting idle for so long any suggestions as to whether I should change fluids, etc would be greatly appreciated.

I would recommend changing the oil only because it is probably 10 years old and I would probably put some form of additive in the fuel if not drop the tank and drain it. 10 year old fuel could be pretty nasty.

Great find though, got any pics?

If it was mine, I would change every single fluid in the truck.

That's not a bad idea either. Flush the coolant and use ELC just because its better than ford stuff, change oil, do a break fluid flush. Change the blinker fluid

Yea figured I would change all fluids and filters. Jarrod, fair amount of dust on the outside but interior was clean.

I didn't think about this one either. New batteries would be good so you don't get stranded. Especially with this cooler weather its hard on batteries. I think I alone have replaced 6+ batteries in the last 2 weeks at work. Not counting what my co-workers have done.
