I just picked up an 08 XLT SC LB. It had 29995 miles on it when I bought it. It now has 31,000 and change. The service sticker shows it had the oil changed by the dealership I bought it from; but, based on today's findings, I may do it myself so I know for sure.
I picked it up at a GMC Dealership and I was told it was traded in for an Escalade. The previous owner inherited it and didn't want a truck.
I did a title history on it and I am the third owner. The first owner put it in service in March 2007, apparently when they 1st rolled out the 08's. The 2nd owner, the son of the first owner got it in November last year and traded it in January; apparently soon after he got the clear title for it.
Figuring the truck has seen a fairly easy life based on it's mileage, I popped into my local Ford Dealer and got a look at the service life of the truck. The previous owner(s) only had it to Ford for a radiator (the venturi setup is in place) and a reflash. No other history of the truck in Ford's computer.
Figuring the truck was owned by an older fellow, I figured the fuel filters would be a good place to start catching up with maintenance. I pulled these out of the truck today:
Not knowing how the previous owner(s) had service done, it looks like this truck, although it has had an easy life; did not get the service it needed.
I guess it is hard to know if the filters have ever been replaced or if these are original from the factory. Based on their appearance, I'd think they have never been replaced.
Anyone have any ideas from the looks of these filters? Seeing that these have not been touched; is there anything else that should be a priority to service?
I've been out of the PSD game since 2002, so any pointers would be much appreciated.
