6.0 Maintence

For all of you guys who think it's not a big deal to replace fuel filters. Well your WRONG! I just got done putting a truck back together today that the guy had 28000 miles on, and his primary fuel filter was full of dirt, it weighed about 10 pounds. It took out the fuel pump, I had 0 psi at the secondary filter housing. Well after replacing the fuel pump it barley ran, missing on 4 cylinders, it had codes for 2 injectors on the right bank, and when i went to replace the 4 injectors on the right side i found 2 of them blown apart due to lack of fuel. To make a long story short the guy was from out of town, and now he has been stranded in town for 4 extra days. So the moral of the story is to MAINTAIN YOUR TRUCK! and when it starts to lack power don't try to limp it in to the dealership, it will only make matters worse.

At least every 12,000 or so. I do mine every 3rd oil chage. Also you need to dump your water fuel seperator ever so often as well.

well ford recommends every 15000 miles, or sooner depending on type of use and fuel quality. they also say drain the water seperator once a month at the minimum, we recomend ever 5000 on the oil changes. Also for an easier time draining the water seperator i found an adapter on a differant site FDDTS - HFCM Water Separator Drain Plug Upgrade
it's a differant style of plug so that you don't need a allen wrench. it looks to me like it would work wonders, but i have not seen one in person yet. also to change your filter underneath your truck you need the same socket that is used to change your oil filter, there is a nice aluminum socket made by i believe lisle tools it's i believe under 10 bucks. anyway good luck to you all.

I recently bought and installed the update water drain plug. It's a beautiful piece of craftsmanship and doesn't require any tools to use. It's a good thing to do and not expensive. I paid about $16 at the dealer.
