FTE forums 1994 F-250 7.3 turbo diesel

Just Bought my first Powerstroke. A ’94 F-250 7.3 4×4 regular cab, long bed. 212,000 miles. Off the bat noticed a strong fuel smell in cab….Did the research and am already planning on re sealing the fuel filter housing. This morning 29° f it started right up, but noticed a knock that I didn’t hear before. Read up, injector possibly. Looking into “hot shots” fuel and oil additive. To help clean things out. 

Besides that I will be taking it into a diesel mechanic that was referred to me sometime in the next week or so. Need an alignment due to driver bad toe wear. 

Any advice before I take it to a mechanic? Or any at all would be greatly appreciated. 

BTW: I’m somewhat mechanically inclined and would like to do my own repairs. With YouTube, FTE forums, and the internet I’m confident I can accomplish most jobs. 

If you have some advice for m.e1994, hop on the forums and lend a helping hand.
