When Maintenance Goes...

RIGHT!! No mess. No stress! Changed the oil with Rotella 5w40, changed the fuel filters and dropped the trans pan. Swapped filter and topped off with 8.5 qts of fresh LV. Not one drop of oil or fuel hit the pavement. It is truly "theropudic" when things go right during maintenance. Trans pan was clean as could be. Truck has 60k miles so I dropped it just to see how we were doing. Truck has been tuned for 50k of those miles towing some heavy trailers. Couldn't be more happy with the results of the inspection. Good tuning goes a long way!


15k mile intervals. Barely anything in the bottom of the bowl. What every common rail owner prays they see when changing filters!



Been Spartan tuned for 50k miles and couldn't be happier. That LV fluid looked dark until I was pouring the new fluid in and it even had a "burgundy" tint to it going into the funnel.

So I'm doing my fuel filters for the first time Saturday. Since you had such good luck, do you want to do mine?

Thanks, but I won't be coming through GA until July so I guess I'll knock it out this weekend. I got the extra housing and the correct socket. I hope I don't encounter any setbacks.

Just nice, easy and steady pressure until she turns loose. You will be fine!
