New Diesel Owner - Need Input...
I just recently obtained one of these beasts "PSD". Big change coming from a car. The truck currently has 298,000 miles, it starts and runs very good. Runs and drives so good they must have done some big time maintenance on it to keep it running. Or is it normal for these to run for such a long time without an engine rebuild? I do know the transmission was rebuilt by Ford dealer at 190K miles, how long do they last if no heavy towing?
I did an oil change this past weekend, since the window sticker showed it almost due. Seen some videos on youtube on changing the injector oil but I thought it circulated with the other engine oil, is this true?
The previous owner put a K&N filter in it but reading these forums the K&N is the worst of the filters. Should I replace it with the stock filter until I can get the cash for another aftermarket filter?
It has new Moog ball joints, tie rod ends, and track bar, but the steering is loose. I had my brother move the steering back and forth while I watched, I didn't notice any movement. Is the steering box worn?
What other things can I check on this truck to be sure all is good?
How many miles do you guys have on your trucks?
