Hello all. 1st time diesel owner here. I recently purchased a '99 Ford F250 PSD 4x4 Lariat. I just needed a power plan to tow a 9k lb 5th wheel camper. I knew nothing about diesel engines so I'm sure the guy saw me coming. Any way. It neeeded a lot of work and I'm fairly hand so I dove right in.The 1st thingI learned was that the coolant reservoir was not an oil reservoir so the 1st repair was replacing oil coolant seals, oil change, complete coolant system flush including a new thermostat, Rear Brakes and rotors were next followed by new batteries. The Fuel Filter didn't even have the o-ring in place. Boy am I in for a ride. My plan is to do everything I can do maintenance wise to get it running smooth. The next projects will include HPOP seals and a fuel bowl rebuild. I'm also getting a p0272 during a CCT so I'll inspect injectors later but I can only handle 1 project at a time. I'm sure I'll have a ton of questions so please bare with me.
