Tune up /maintanance

Besides changing the oil & fuel filter at the recommended intervals, tire rotation,& checking fluids, what other tune up items are needed to keep pur 7.3 PSD running strong?? This is my 1st diesel . I have ordered extra CPS's to keep handy just in case.


Thanks,

Osk

Air filter is important also, and running a diesel fuel additive is a good move also in my opinion

Not sure how many miles you have, but you could change out the tranny(i think every 30k), transfer case(if equipped) differentials, brake fluid(every 3 yrs?) Could do a DIY intake (not sure what you have) or check the air filter every 10k or 15k. +1 on a good fuel additive.

If you have over 100k miles, you need to look into your Diesel fuel filter and also draining your water/diesel separator bowl.

Lucas is #1 in trucking .. And adding any thing to the Diesel to help it lube it. The diesel they have now is 15 parts permillion. not to dam good for lubing all the parts in the diesel that is why I try to put ATF in the tank .
And Grease the **** out of it ever 5,000 miles..
In heavy trucking or wet weather like where I live . That is what we do in heavy trucking , a little grease is cheaper then a repair job .. Or a U joint out in the woods.
