6.4L Maintenance, owners only pls.

Hey guys. I'm looking long and hard at a 2008. I've built and priced one with all the options I want. I've had my insurance company give me quote for insurance. Slowly I'm knocking off all the questions I have. The next question on the list is for 6.4 owners only please. What is the maintenance schedule for these bad boys. I was told by the salesman that oil changes are every 10,000 miles. So does that mean that you need a tire rotation at every oil change? Fuel filters are every 20,000? Other than checking the air filter and draining the water, is there any thing else? If someone could scan and post a couple of pages from their Ford maintenance schedule it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, TT.

well you can see the manual HERE but I wouldn't attempt it on dial up. It's huge.

Life changes, so roll with it, not against it.

yep, its all there and online...all the info and manuals a guy can want, you either have to well off financall or be able to do your own matience!!! there is lots. the trucks now are "job one" and still have an external tranny filter. job 2will have an internal only or something like that(will have NO external filter!!) the transfere case will change soon. goes from 30,000 to 60,000 miles between change. 10,000 on oil is with NO towing. hope this helps. get the truck.....600 miles and looking for things wrong. the only thing i found so far is the drivers window goes down 1/16th of an inch after i put it up and the hood is off 1/32 if an inch on the passenger side as compared to the drivers side....what a drag all these major defects.....lollollol. put together great!!!!

TT what part of the country are you in?

Here in the SW according to our pre-launch meetings I attended the air filter is to be changed more or less at 5k.

Thanks for the quick replys guys. I'm looking more for the regular maintenance schedule (oil changes, tire rotation, fuel filers, that sort of thing). The bible has tons of info, but not really what I'm looking for. If I ever need to know how the glow plugs are wired, or how to check the heads for flatness, I'll definitaly use the bible.

Dale_Lakin, I'm in the "northern colony", Canada. From what I've seen, and read, you just have to change the air filter when the dummy gage on the air filter housing says it's time.

I found what I was looking for. I knew I had seen it here some where. The Motorcraft Service Video answers all. Thanks for the info and input guys.
