need an owners manual!

the company gave me this truck, but it came without an owners manual. after driving a 97 dodge cummins for the past 300,000 miles (the most recent 100,000 on biodiesel), i don't even know what kind of oil these trucks like. i think i did read somwhere in this forum that these motors don't take too kindly to biodiesel though. also things like oil change intervals, filter change intervals... is there a place to get an owners manual for an 05 F350, or do i have to endure a trip to the dealership... any info about manuals, or just general stuff would be appreciated.

You can get the whole setup from the dealership for $50 or less.

What info do you need to know. We can all possibly help you as well. Save you 50 bucks.

The recommend oil is 15w40 diesel rated. Most people use Rotella or Amsoil. The capacity is 15 qts
The motorcraft part number for the oil filter is FL 2016.

Any other questions feel free to ask

Got mine directly off of Motorcraft's site. Mine didnt come with a manual either for some reason

The manual for the engine itself is here as well as a seperate download.

thanks for the help, everyone. davey-do, i tried to follow your link, but it wouldn't let me. goose, i followed your link and downloaded that manual... unfortunately, i think all the stuff i really wanted to know is in the diesel supplement. i'll go back to that site and see if there's one of those available for download as well.

i've only been in this truck a coupla weeks, but i just found out the other day that it has had no service maintenance whatsoever since my company bought it. 15,000 miles ago. so, it looks like i'll be stopping by the ford dealer on my way home tomorrow to buy air/fuel/oil filters. i have a few gallons of delo 400 (that's what i've been using in my dodge for the last 307,000 miles, and in my old 6.2 suburban for 350,000 before that), so hopefully these motors take to that oil allright. are there really two fuel filters on these motors? is there anything else i should know before my first powerstroke oil change/filter change day? any other maintenance that should be performed at the same time?

Try this link:
https://www.motorcraftservice.com/vd...&VEHICLE=F-350

The delo 400 oil would be OK just verify that it is CI4+ or CJ4 rated (I believe it is), but there are probably better choices even if it is. Rotella T is probably the most common. The Ford oil always gave me good Used Oil Analysis results.

Going synthetic has quite a few advantages and well worth considering (Mobil 1 Turbo Diesel Truck 5W40 oil or the Rotella T 5W40). Use only OEM (or OEM style Racor filters).

Probably changing the fuel filters would be a good idea. Get them fairly cheap at the International dealership ($36 a pair).

Go to Ebay and do a search, I've seen several on there over the last few months. I even bought the factory Ford repair disc and later found the dealer fleet repair books.

Sorry about that link, strangely enough it works from my work computer but I get the same error at my house that you are referencing.

Try going directly to motorcraftservice.com, then picking "owner guides" on the upper left side under the non-subscription resources header. Then just narrow down your search using the drop down menus. That works from my house so it should work for you as well. They have the 6.0l diesel supplement available there.
