General 6.0 questions from new powerstroke guy
Hello everyone, I recently purchased a 2004 F250, 6.0 ps, auto trans, ext cab, 4X4, 52 K miles.
I was hoping for some good input from you folks who have the 6.0 on things to look out for regarding potential problems ( I've read about some on here), recommended maint procedures, supplies (oil types, brands, etc. example rotella 15w40, or synthetic, etc)
I have heard about some problems with the 6.0 so I'd like to learn as much as I can about it.
Do many of you use the dealer for some service parts, or aftermarket?
I work as a mech for the army as a civilian working on military junk, so I'll be doing work myself. Only small diesels we have in trucks are the 6.2 and 6.5 GM's
Also: Is it possible to take the VIN to a dealer and have them do a lookup on any warranty work done. I would think it is, but how willing would they be to share that info...probably have a better chance of me lifting up the truck without a jack.
Thanks for any and all info you folks out here may have,
