Howdy all!!! I just purchased my first diesel.. A 99 Ford F350 S.C.w/40k on it.Extremely clean..I need some help with suggestions for routine maintenance and the sort...I reside in CT. so the winter doesnt really hit until mid Dec. or so..But the temp does fall @ freezing at times in Oct..I have read posts about a special additive for the cooling system..Tell me more..Also just some general "diesel" info will be much appreciated... Thanx,,,,M

    Sorry don't really know. I've got all gassers: an F-350 V10, and F-150 w/ 5.0L. Just ask your questions up at the other web site.

    You should have a supplement to the owners manual just for the Powerstroke engine. All the info should be in that book. Let me know if you didn't get that, and I'll look at mine to try to answer any questions.
