Dieselmann's PSD Tips

Tips
Do not use starting fluids for hard starting problems. With the glow plug system, starting fluids can ignite as the key is turned on causing engine damage. Keep your batteries and charging system in good condition, note any problems with the glow plug cycle, and if you experience a hard cold start problem, plug in the block heater, if your truck is equiped with one. This will heat the coolant enough to aid in starting. If you do experience hard starting, get you truck serviced as this condition could cause other system problems if left unrepaired, such as starter failure.
Care should be taken when installing performance enhancing devises or "chips", or modifing any electronic engine component such as configuring the exhaust back pressure valve to act as an engine brake. This can cause driveability problems, "check engine" light to come on, and may affect your warrenty.
If you truck has an automatic overdrive transmission and you tow, remember that there is no engine braking in overdrive. It is recommended that the overdrive be cancelled when towing in hilly areas to prevent accelerated brake and transmission wear and transmission overheating


Is this FORDS views or Dieselmann's- Especially the part on "CHIPS" ???

I came across his site a few years ago and it is very informative. I am just used to my non-conforming husband who continues to tell me, you can read and interpret all you want but when it comes down to reality, it's all together different. Still, I think it is very informative and you can always learn something.

Thanks,
Vivian
