Changed filters today
I changed the engine oil, oil filter, and both fuel filters on my 2019 today. With only 15 K miles on the odometer, it was my first fuel filter change and 3rd oil change on this truck. I was amazed at how clean the frame rail fuel filter appeared to be. Of all the diesel engines I have maintained over the years both personal, farm, and company equipment, I have never observed a filter medium with no visible dirt, crud, or discoloration. The frame rail filter looked as clean as the new one, only wet.
It sure makes me feel good about the new local fuel station where I have bought 98% of the fuel for this truck. I will continue to purchase all my diesel from this business unless I am traveling.
If the filter looks the same after the next change, I am thinking of just changing fuel filters every 20 K miles.
I cycled the key 5 times to purge the system and the truck started without hesitation on the first attempt.
And on a side note, I do not get the ticking or type writer sound after an oil change with this '19 which is a big deal for me. I had a '15 and a '17 that did not develop a ticking after oil changes but I had a '13 that sounded horrible for 1500 miles after every oil change. The '13 had several issues though so the ticking was one of the more minor problems it had.
