These two topics (re: MBS) have been discussed EXTENSIVELY in this forum. I ask you to read about it before you venture out for service. In short, if you're handy, you can easily do the oil change for under a $100 bucks. Fuel filter is a bit more involved, but doable if you're mechanically inclined. But, there are precautions that must be taken into account regarding the seal replacement at the turbo. Ford WILL NOT have the TSB's (technical service bulletin) from MB regarding that, and it can be catastrophic if it gets sucked into the turbo. It's just a seal, maybe $20 bucks, changed in 30 seconds during the filter swap out, but if their not familiar, you're at risk.
