Get the best compressor you can find. Ford offers a reman. I bought from Oreillys or Auto Zone(I cant remember),and replaced it a month later, because of loose clutch tolerance. Pain in the butt to change.

repalmer EVERYONE should go fill up their tanks TODAY
Yemen just hit Saudi oil fields with drone strikes and took out half their supply. Prices are going to jump because of it. You know how fast they are to raise prices but then take forever to drop back down after supply is back.

I just fount the rear of the exhaust manifolds on both sides were loose on my truck, but just the 2 rear bolts on each. Drove 2400 miles last week running sluggish with high EGTs. Got home and tightened 4 bolts and it runs better. Not perfect, but better. I am certain to have blown gasket material out

mbsfield18 I had no idea this was a thing. But, I did a little research since finding out about this, tonight LOL. Biocide will dissolve algae if it's present in the fuel, too. According to what I read.

all drive the same trucks ( motors ) and I trust the wide knowledge base on here .
Fill as full as possible only leave just enough air for expansion. The less air the less chance for condensation (same as your truck tank) Stabil for Diesel or a good biocide and it'll last a long time.

Yes.

"What is diesel fuel algae ? There are actually different types of diesel algae, aka diesel bacteria. The most common species happily nest right in the space between water and the diesel fuel in your diesel tank. ... Diesel algae reproduce by multiplying themselves, so they can rapidly grow in number."
