Hey everyone Im new to diesels and do know a thing about them I got a diesel cause they are they way to go if your pulling or just for play and hauling anyways I dont know a damn thing I dont even know what the glow plugs are haha. So Im wanting to know the info on what to do and what not to do anything from how to start it how to use 4x4 lol yes I said that but Im a mustang guy so Im going to ask some questions and anything that you thing I should know about them let me know please...Im new to this so here I go I noticed my heater didnt work and I read that it maybe low on coolant so I added more and nothing yet
On the passenger side of the truck, you will see the rubber hose leading to the heater core. In that line, there is a valve. There should be a thin gray line going to this valve. It sometimes pops off. Check that out.
Next, what coolant did you add?
Be aware that the markings on the bottle where you added the coolant are incorrect. When the coolant is hot, you should not exceed the top of the "add" line. Lower your coolant level to that mark.
what is 4lo and 4hi and what do the lockers do and when do you use them how long do I wait to start it and what do I do in the morning starts cause it gets cold in Bakersfield.
Holy run-on sentence batman! Not trying to be harsh, but punctuation really helps.
4LO and 4HI are (naturally) engaging the 4 wheel drive. The 4LO not only engages the 4 wheel drive, but also a gear reduction. You would use the lower gearing to your advantage in different off-road situations. The 4HI is just engaging the 4 wheel drive system.
Lockers? Unless someone added a locker to your truck, you do not have a locker.
You should wait for the glowplug light on the dash to go out before starting it, squiggly line that lights up in the middle of the dash.
And when Im pulling a trailers is there anything I need to switch on or use or do so those are my ?s so lease let me know other things I need to know
On the end of the gear shift, there is a button. When towing, push the button.
also I almost forgot I have a lite on in my cluster it has 8 dots and a line on top and one on bottom with an arrow to the right side of it what is it and should it be on or is there something wrong I hear its a engine filter light ? ....thanks and please dont reply with rude comments Im new at this
You need to replace the air filter. One very important thing to know about your air filter is that it is the BEST filter you could possibly have on the truck. Buy a new air filter and put it on and leave the stock air intake system right where it is.
