New Member! Few Pics of the truck!!

Here is my new to me truck!! I'm new to diesels and had a few questions.

It's a 2006 F-250 FX4 Lariat with 47k miles on it.

I don't know when the fuel filter was last changed so should I go ahead and change it? Also what engine oil do you recommend and how often do you change it?

Nice truck! Prolly wouldnt be a bad idea to change the fuel filters, its important to only use motorcraft or racor thou. Dieselfiltersonline.com has the best prices on filters. If you go to powerstrokehelp.com he will explain why you are gonna want to use only motorcraft parts. I just started using the rotella T-5 10w-30 and my truck loves it, starts faster and runs smoother.

Ok, thanks for the advice!

How much fuel will come out when I take that hex cap off the lower filter? I was reading the write up and it just said to have a bucket ready to catch it..??

I usually use a plastic party cup to catch the fuel, will fill about 1/2 way. There is a drain on the lower filter housing to drain water off, drain that then take the cap off so it doesnt run down ur arms and ****.
