I usually look here. Type in your truck's info, it should come up with the owner's manual and a scheduled maintenance list.

Thank you, I also a alot more questions. Like what type of oil and oil filter I should use, at fluid and filter, air filter, fuel filter/water separator, how I should change at fluid. Should I run additives and what brand is good. I have alot of experience with working on cars/truck just not diesel. And anything else I should be doing to keep my truck in good running condition.it is an 04 f250 6.0 with the torqshift granny 4wd. Any help would be much appreciated.

If you go to the 6.0L forums (I have the link above), you can read the posts in there or ask specific questions. Lots of owners in there know about 6.0Ls.
