re: My new truck - greasemonkey on 8/18/14 at 11:05 amIts easier ti loosen passenger side bed bolts
remove drivers side bed bolts
Remove 3 7mm bolts under. gas tank door.
unplug lights behind bumper
lift drivers side of bed. I use a scissor jack.

probably had a pump put in and line isn't on.

add half a can of seafoam to the crankcase.

Good news is I've never heard of a lifter failing on a 6.0...

replace air filter
can of seafoam in the gas tank
service all the fluids...
