First 5K mile service coming up. What to expect?
Looks like I'll be going in soon for the first 5k mile service. Any advice/guidance on what to expect from the dealer?
I know these PSDs are a little more picky with regards to service, but other than your normal oil change, is there anything else I should have replaced?
This will be my first service since buying the truck. It had ~35K on it when I bought it and I'm about 600 miles out from the recommended 5k services. I usually do all of my own work/services, but being new to the PSD engine, I figured I'd let the dealer handle the first service or two.
So, how often do you guys have your rigs serviced? Mine mainly sees highway/city driving duty with very minimal towing.
What else should I put on the "list"? Air filter, fuel filter, trans fluid, etc?
Also, what about re-flashing? That seems to be a pretty hot topic for a lot of folks on here. Is this something that would need to be done to a low mileage 05?
I'm guessing most of these should have been addressed/replaced when the truck was traded in, but I have no way of being sure. I do know the coolant reservoir issue (min line is actually max) has been addressed since I noticed the sticker this weekend.
Any guidance you folks could give would be greatly appreciated!
