Newbie here. 1st post

Hello all. I just bought my first PowerStroke, an 01' F-250 crewcab. The truck isn't running right now and is currently in the shop getting a new starter and possibly a new flywheel.

I wanted to get a general idea about the powerstrokes from 99-03, concerning things like reliability, what to watch for, and also what is required in the way of normal or scheduled repairs and service.

Once I figure out a few things like what kind of oil I'm going to use for a 198,000 mile truck, and a few other basic things, I am going to start with a few mods and wanted some pointers there too. Tell me if I'm on the right track in considering a BullyDog programmer, an exhaust, and a cold air intake??? The truck looks like it has an aftermarket exhaust right now, and I'll find out exactly what exhaust is there.

Thanks for the post!!!

Dont bother with the Bully Dog, get a custom tuned chip from PHP, DP, TW, TS, etc... do some searches around here and you will come up with TONS of info
