Mentoring For A New Diesel Owner
First time diesel owner and just when I think I know what I need to do, I read more opinions and question what really needs to be done.
So Here's what I have planned for my 04 with 29k miles.
Fuel Filter - Change
Air Filter - Change
Oil and Filter(s) Change
Will do these myself, already have the parts.
Next is the:
Coolant flush change. Run restore and restore + and fill with good ELC
I will have a shop do this. Do I just tell the shop that I want a coolant flush and change. What do I ask them about the flush process to ensure I'm getting maximum effectiveness?
What else should I do in conjunction with the coolant change if anything. Not towing or anything. Just short trips around town and a weekly 100 mile round trip at highway speeds
