2005 f250 fx4

i just bought a 2005 6.0l, reluctantly but i got a good deal. it has 44,000 miles so i ran the vin on oasis and it hasnt been in for any warranty work. i did all the research i could and most owners say the 05s and up are good. what do you guys think and any recommendations on maintanence. i am keeping it stock until the warranty runs out.

Hi,

Change your oil every 4,000 miles and your fuel filters every 10,000 miles. More often if you travel in an area that is sandy or dusty.

Thanks,
Vivian

If you don't program it... don't worry about the headgaskets. If they do go... then the dealer should have ZERO issues fixing them.
