My First Post - Need Fluid Help!!
I've got a new to me '01 250 7.3 and I'm in the process of making many changes. But first, I want to start all over with the fluids so I can put it on a regular diet, so to speak.
Here is my issue: I'm wanting to change out all of my fluids since I don't know the history on this vehicle.
I reckon I've got
- 2 differentials
- Auto transmission
- Transfer Case
- Engine Oil
A few questions:
Does this '01 have drain plugs at the diffs or do you need to open the covers?
I've heard LOTS of good things about Royal Purple. I'm open to other brands but I'm not driven by price - I want to do this right. What Royal Purple "models" do I use and which "hole" does it go in?
The shop said they can "flush and rinse" the tranny fluid. That seems to make more sense than just drain and fill. Should I also recommend that for my coolant?
The shop I've used for other vehicles is not a Ford specific shop. But the guys are experienced wrenches and they are confident in working on my truck. They've always done me right before.
Any and all other input is appreciated.
