New owner of '06 Powerstroke

Hi everyone. I recently purchased an 06 F250 with the 6.0 Powerstroke. Not my first Ford, but my first diesel pick-up. She's got 181,000 on her and was resurrected after being stolen and partly striped. Last owner was a trucking company that used it as an escort vehicle. She definitely needs some TLC and I am hoping to get some good info from you all that know WAYYY MORE about these trucks than I do. Glad to be here

Welcome to the .org -- lots of good info here

The 6.0 can be a fun and dependable ride, but you need to be aware of the sounds and quirks

I would suggest Torque Pro and the OBDLink MX adapter, if your an Android guy(tablet of phone) for a monitor -- there are more 'permanent' monitors, but with more expense

In my defense, I was unsupervised

Torque Pro and OBDLink MX bluetooth monitor
General note:
For all those wanting a premium silicone sealer Kubota 70000-73764 is the best your gonna find. This is a hybrid gray silicone that uses solvent rather than acid to start the curing reaction, this makes it safe for aluminum and and any surface that involves coolant.

Thanks for the warm greetings. From cruising this and other forums the past few months, it looks like I am in for an adventure with this 6.0! Gonna need all the info I can find.
