finally an owner of PSD

hey guys,
Me and my wife flew down to FL yesterday to pick up an 08 F250 PSD I found. Truck is in mint condition, all service up to date, oil changes with every oil lab results even pictures.

I want to do my first oil change, and wanted to make sure the motorcraft 15w40 oil that meets CJ-4 specs is the orange bottle and not the black one.

I suppose oil changes are pretty simple on these engines? Unscrew the oil filter on the of the engine (closer to the passenger side cap) put in new filter and new O-ring, reinstall, drain oil, and put new one in?

These motorcraft diesel oils, do they make them in synthetic as well or is it just regular conventional?

Thanks a lot,
Jacob

I also change both fuel filters at every oil change. Fuel system related problems seem to arise quite a bit as well as horror stories of denied warranty work over not changing fuel filters.

Actually change the fuel filter every other oil change. The dealership says every 20k miles but if he does it every other oil change would be fine. Every oil change is too soon and would get expensive after a while.
