First off I'd like to say great site.
Very informative, However i'm short on time so No homeowrk for me!
I hope i can get some help.
3 weeks ago i bought myself well whats in my signature. I am from PA and i bought this truck in FL. Over all this truck is very solid and rust free. The milege is up there and i belive pm's were a "run her till she stops".
Anyone have a list of thing to check? I would like to have all fluids changed i.e. engine oil, trans, differentale, axles, coolant, power steering, grease point or luib points, etc. etc. Anyone know all proper fluids to be used?
I have many questions. I hope i am explaing myself okay.
What is th proper way to change power steering fluid?
Do the 4x4 hubs, brake calipers need anything? If so what and how?
My biggest concern now is the exhaust. The left side pre turbo donut is bad. Slow to biuld boost. Any one have any input on this?
I do have a new fuel filter that came with the truck. She starts hard in the cold 40*f and below needs plugged in and even still runs very hard until she gets warm. I believe it might have something to with the leakng exhaust. I put in new fuel, so?.
Like i said this truck is very solid and rust free. She just need a good pm. I am very knowledgable on doing all this work myself. I never been a ford guy until this truck. so i am lost on this new beast.
I'd tell you wat i drive now, but i might not get any help.
Okay just one hint: i swing only one way....
And if nyone has any inpt on some good DIY's hat'll help the truck over all. I'd like to delete the muff, but this is for business use. well i'll stop here and wait to see what follows.
As of now, thank you to all who reply's with info.
