Help me with my new 1999 F250 PSD
I'm kind of an older codger and would really appreciate your wisdom on taking care of a 7.3 PSTD. I just bought a very nice 1999 F250 XLT 7.3L with crew cab. It has a cold air intake (don't know which, but it has a clear cover) and a Beans Performance chip with and Stage 1 injectors installed a couple of years ago as well as a 4" lift. I know nothing about chips or injectors...just reading the receipt in the jockey box. The mileage is a little over 180K and, for reference to any one pricing these, I paid $9K over in Colorado. So far, I'm tickled pink with it.
I had an '01 work truck with a 7.3L some years ago which I loved (reason I've been wanting one), but all I did with it was change oil and add fuel. I want to know your opinions help me maintain this truck to run for another 200-300K miles. Give me your experience concerning the most important maintenance items/intervals on the engine and the auto transmission. Also, what spares (like cam position sensor) should I always have on board. Thank you all so much.
