Been doing a ton of research and haven't really found a consensus. I just bought a 2006 f250 with 54K on it and am doing everything. I bought AMSOIL fluids and Motocraft/rancor filters. I'm doing oil, front and rear diff (AMSOIL Severe gear oil), transmission, transfer case and replacing oil, transmission external and both fuel filters.
My research has netted me some good answers on the above. The only thing I cannot reach a decision on is coolant as I want to flush my cooling system. Many say stick with gold and add a filter, others say go to CAT red and add a filter.
Either way, I think I'll be doing a bypass filter and will perform a flush. i.e. drop lower radiator hose and fill degas with distilled water, drive around and repeat 4-5 times until clear. Also, should I flush with restore even if adding gold again? Will restore help decontaminate my oil cooler if there's debris? Any guidance is appreciated!
Also, noticed my instrument cluster has two temp gauges on the right hand side, is one oil and one coolant? I know I'm suppose to monitor those two temperatures to ensure an unplugged oil cooler and want to know if gauges will be necessary or if those will be sufficient. Thanks for the help in advance!
And an obligatory pic of the new rig! Out of the cummins, into the
