So I've been wrenching for quite a few years now as a hobby. Though it was all mostly gasoline vehicles.

This is my first diesel ever. I was wondering if there was a guide on suggested interval changes, how to's (oil, rear diff, fuel filters, trans, etc) and what specific fluids everyone uses? Couldn't really find much on the forums for specific things. Sorry if I've missed it!

@Chrispy - you're right in that their isn't a single definitive post or forum that answers your questions.

@Dunrollin has posted a few DIY video links from FordTechMakuloco for the non-diesel related interval changes:
and there are numerous threads on these topics w/recommendations but no DIY videos:
I like the idea and can work with you on sticky threads or a new sub-forum if you want to take the lead on this concept.

My first recommendation (based on @RLVoumard and @Reinharm's recent experiences) would be a DIY video on the correct oil filter change procedure (from the Ford Shop manual that @Kval posted) to combat all of the incorrect YouTube videos out there and something we can send to Ford Oil Change technicians! I'd love to see a DIY YouTube video with the following:
  • Zoom of bottom of oil filter assembly showing rubber stopper and the "nub"
  • Proper procedure (New filter installed on shaft/post and not clicked into the cup)
    • Show how filter will not spin after installed on shaft/post
  • Explanation of what happens to the nub when you click in into the cup first
  • Possible symptoms (Low Oil Pressure warnings)
  • Estimated cost to repair if nub sheared off due to improper procedure
and I'll even offer to help write the script if you don't know what/how to say it.

Maybe you and @Dunrollin could collaborate on something?

Sorry I didn't see this till now! I very much like this idea and am willing to collaborate to get some good informative guides going.
