Air intake, FPR spring, couple other questions.
I just purchased an 06 F250 Lariat with 119k. Had the dealer do an oasis report and found that the EGR cooler and oil cooler, stand pipes and dummy plugs had been replaced at 93k.
Should the coolers be ok for awhile now? I need to get the coolant flush done, but not sure if I should do it myself or have a shop do it, as it seems hard to find a shop that I can trust to complete the job correctly.
Also, what cold air intake is the best for these trucks? I was thinking about the AFE stage II but there are 3 different variations of it.
My FICM voltage has been low at start up, lowest I've seen has been 30v, but then after driving for a short distance, it jumps up to almost normal, between 45 and 48v. Will this leave me stranded, will I have warning signs in the form of hard starts and rough runs or is the voltage reading the only warning sign??
And lastly, I read all about the BLUE FPR spring, but went to dealer and they can't seem to find it in their schematics, so do any of you guys that have done this have a part # for it or a suggestion on where to get it??
As a new 6.0 owner, I really appreciate the wealth of knowledge the forums offer!! Thanks in advance!!
