Bought my first diesel

I just bought a 2010 F250 4x4 with 66k miles. This is my first diesel. I would appreciate any advice from the veterans, on things I should know about for proper diesel maintenance. i.e. fluids and filters to change, upgrades needed or just things to look out for.

I thank everyone in advance.

EDIT: Moved your thread to the 6.4L Forums. I'm sure you'll get helpful advice.

Read around some but what I do is oil and filter every 5k motor craft 2016 and rotella t6.

Fuel filters (both upper and lower) every 10k.

I check the antifreeze nitrate levels in conjunction with fuel filters.

Don't use knock-off brand filters for anything.

Read up on here about how regen cycles work and that should steer you to getting a tuner to delete the Dpf and egr
