Smile New PSD for me!

Hey guys, So im kinda new to this whole diesel world. I just picked up an 05 6.0 F250 supercrew with 74,000 miles on it. I dont know the maintence on it so the first thing I was gonna do is start from scratch. Was wondering if you guys had any recs for brands (oil,coolant,trans...etc)

So far the under the hood is pretty stock. As for the outside it had a few extras. A nice lift and new fab tech suspension with toyo 37's.

I know all the problems with these things lie with the oil cooler and egr cooler. I spoke with a diesel mechanic friend and he told me to look into the bulletproof oil cooler. I was wondering if I should do that or just delete the EGR?

Thanks for any info

-Chris

and congrats on the

As for the bulletproof oil cooler... you don't really need one... Get something like a Edge Insight CTS to monitor the ECT & EOT and go from there for that....

but a EGR delete, coolant filter, and a EC-1 rated coolant and then your Powerstroke will love you alot more for those simple things.... and when you do a flush of the old coolant use Restore and Restore Plus

That's pretty much the recipe. If your oil and coolant temp delta exceeds 15* rebuild the oil cooler. Do those things and you are sitting pretty good with your 6.0.

Use Racor or Motorcraft filters (dieselfiltersonline.com is a great place to get them) and a 5w40 synthetic oil with no more than a 6k mile oil change interval. Change fuel filters every 15k.
