Good evening to all. Im now the owner of a 97 350 cc 4x4. Im not new to diesels but I am new to this engine. 239,450 miles is alot but the rest of the truck is awesome. I new the po and he was very good on maintenance. Any help would be welcomed. Is there anything I should be aware of? I know the truck is up for service and I've never changed this fuel filter is it a mess? Working on equipment is second nature for me so im not afraid it to get dirty. Any suggestions on oil,filters or anything don't hesitate to chime in. Thanks.

Fuel filter change is less messy than the IDI IMO. While the element is out, inspect the bottom of the bowl for crud. Pay attention to the orientation of the sealing gasket.

All my friends use Motorcraft filters bought at O'Reilly's.

I get my Motorcraft oil filters at wal-mart. 9.97 and my fuel filters from fleet pride. Only oil I have ever used is Shell Rotella 15-40 my truck in signature now has 246k miles on it and runs like a dream.
