Suggestion on fluid changes?
Hey guys, I bought my job2 '08 F250 HD back in April of 2012. It had about 55k miles on it when I got it. I got it from the original owner who bought the ESP and was nice enough to have it transferred over to me. The truck was never modified by him and when I pulled the CarFax on it I saw a few things. It had a "radiator repair" at 10k miles, fuel filter changed at 16k miles, and oil changes here and there. When I got the truck I changed the fuel filters, oil and filter, and added an H+S Tuner, DPF Delete, S+B CAI a few months later. Prior to adding the tuner I had an oil leak and the front crank seal was replaced by the dealer. Went back in about 2 months later for leaking at the same spot and this time dealer said it was the front pump cover (took it to a different dealer). According to the CarFax, both repairs included an oil/filter change. I'm about to hit 60k miles on the truck and I have not seen anything on CarFax about a tranny service. So I'm thinking at 60k miles I will change all the fluids I can: Oil/filter, power steering flush, transmission fluid/filter change, front and rear differential fluid changes, radiator fluid change. I will also be adding a Sinister Coolant Filter I have recently purchased.
My question is, I was considering upgrading the transmission pan to a Mag Hytec and the differential pans too. Maybe not all at once, I was going to start with the transmission pan first (for obvious reasons). I don't usually tow heavy with the truck and only drive it once or twice a week. Being that I'm still under the 5/100,000 warranty and the ESP do you guys suggest any specific fluids? I was going to run the Ford stuff and when I do the oil changes I always use the Motorcraft Oil and Filters.
Thinking of doing a Blackstone Oil Analysis too. I have a Fujimoto drain valve on the oil pan. What a great invention!
