I keep the downloaded Diesel and Owners Guide handy and refer to them frequently. You can download the Ford manuals here...

Read your owners manual cover to cover multiple times. And I drain my water separator before every fill up, to see if I am getting bad fuel.

I only fill up about every 2 months, so it's not to bad for me to check it.

I fill up every week! maybe 2 times.... every 2 months!?!?! I hate you lol

To the OP - Just keep your fluids topped off, check air pressures, run diesel kleen every other fill up and i switched to Amsoil for my 1st oil change and do that every 10,000 miles and change the fuel filters at that time too. It costs about $250 but i feel its worth it.

You only fill up every 2 months? How did you get 56,000 miles on it.

Oil Change: 5,000mi
Air Filter: 10,000mi
Fuel Filters: 15,000mi

That's what I did before I deleted my truck. I will extend my OCI's now with no DPF or EGR. To soot up my oil & make oil. What a nightmare that was
