Diesel information for the new owner
Changing the oil every 3,000 miles with a quality oil made for diesel engines, favorite brands and grades/weights?
I heard the I should fill my truck with fuel where the big rigs fill up, because then those fuel stations have better turn over and less water in the fuel, True or False?
Advice on coolant changes, routine maintenance? Should I take it to the local Ford dealer and bend over? Or find a good independent mechanic and make a friend?
My rig: 1991 3/4 ton with over rider springs, with only a bumper pull (never had a frame mounted hitch, but it will soon), 5 speed manual, 7.3L diesel, XLT Lariat, AC (not pushing any cold air), body is straight and very clean, 133,000 miles, all for $5700.
I removed the oil filler cap while the motor was running and saw "no blow-by" smoke. I heard that that meant it was well maintained with frequent oil changes, True/false?
Thanks for any and all advice, Hugh
