I think i can hijack my own thread. and give it a
So i got 60,000 on the truck now and when the dealer did the FICM i had them flush the transmission and do the filters at the same time. today i changed the oil, filter, and fuel filters. First time i seen a 5 gal. bucket fill up from one oil change
Oil filter and engine fuel filters were a slam dunk. But who thought up the location for the frame filter on the pump
First you got a drive line 1 1/2" away, then the cross-member 6 " behind and to top it off, a fuel line routed down the side of the thing. It took me more time to replace that filter then to do the rest of the job.
Well, i did have to make a wrench to fit the housing, oh and the last oil change that it had before i bought it they used a NAPA filter and cap, the dealer let me know about it when they did the FICM so luckily i picked the Motocraft cap up as i left. It would have sucked today to find the Racor filter would not work with the NAPA cap. Of course i ordered the filters from the Diesel filters online site 3 weeks ago for this day.
SO to the point, the next thing i want to do it change the coolant to ELC but my temperature delta is good so I am afraid if i flush it i could kill the oil cooler. Should i just flush 2 - 3 times with distilled water and add the new or should i do something different?
And by the way, this must be the most helpful site i have ever come across. thank you all for all the help and suggestions i have seen reading all of these posts.
