Rotated the tires, got LED headlight bulbs, LED foglight bulbs, smoked LED mirror lens / lights, changed the oil, changed trans fluid, got everything ready for a mini road trip on Wednesday. In the 6.0 for oil I always used Delo 15W40 but I seen it wasn't on the approved list of oils for the 6.7 so I switched to Rotella T6 This stuff is a lot more expensive, thankfully it was on sale for $21/gal but the bill was still $110 for 4 gallons and a filter. At least next time I won't have to get the 4th gallon but it'll still be expensive haha. Did anyone notice this oil smells like tree sap?

The smell is all the additives and friction mods being put in to meet specs now. Walk over to all my 55gal drums of stock oil and its like being in a weird automotive forest. LOL.

If there's a Sam's Club near you, watch for it to go on sale. It was around $45 per case of 3 gallons a couple months ago. I bought 5 cases and with Shell's rebates at the time ended up paying $9/gallon

If you still have your receipt, there is a $7.00 per gallon rebate from Shell.

Installed new rear brake calipers, went with ford reman’s. My drivers side rear caliper was starting to stick so decided to relace both in the rear.

When one side is bad, the other side can't be far off. Smart choice. Why re-bleed the system again when you can just get it all done at once.


How hard was your brake system bleed. I heard rumor that these trucks have a finicky system bleed due to the ABS system. Or is that bunk?

Cheers!

When it comes to mechanics, everything I know is from either breaking it or watching someone else do the same. Then I had to fix it....Is that bad?

Was a breeze, just a few cracks of the bleeder to get any air out took maybe 5min max, but I also always hook up the line right away and leave the bleeder valve open until it starts spitting fluid out then tighten it up while I’m torquing it all down so it fills the caliper up and there’s usually not a lot of air as most gets pushed out of the caliper as it forces the air out as it fills

Generally speaking a bleed is easy, it's a brake system flush with the ABS that can be tricky.

What did I do this week? I learned a lesson....yea a simple lesson we always seem to discuss. Add to that a dash of karma to boot....



So two weeks or so ago I changed the oil/oil filter in the truck at 130k. No issues, but I had it in mind I would get to changing the Diesel Site kit filters as well. I decided I'll do the fuel filters at the next weekend. That weekend came and went. We needed to run errands today so out the door we go. Down the usual route BUT there was some sort of police/fire/rescue situation going on which required me to do a complete u-turn to head back towards my house to run the back route. All of a sudden....BING BING BING...Low Fuel Pressure on the dash. WTH?????...OK the message...truck is running fine. Dab on the pedal.....boost comes up and DROPS like a rock....CTS 2 Fuel PSI says 3k....Should be at least 12+ if not 20....but 3K!??!....F-me......Got to the house. Switched vehicles. Ran errands. The whole time I'm going thru the troubleshooting plan of attack. Heading home I remember.... I need to check the filter minder on the DieselSite kit. Well there's your problem....smack down into the red. So I got out the coveralls, tools, drain pan, and new filters. Changed it all out, cleaned up. Test ride complete, no issues.



Yea....I didn't follow the SIMPLE maintenance of changing fuel filters WHEN I should have. Thank the Lord I was already heading back towards my house.

In the end...I re-learned a lesson....Do the vehicle maintenance when you are supposed to.
