Replacing brake pads on a 99 f250 is fairly easy. first make sure your vehicle is jacked up and secured by blocks or jack stands if you have some. 1.remove tire 2.remove 2 caliper bolts or pins as it may have. located top and bottom of caliper. (the piece that holds the brake pads) 3. remove old pads out of caliper, or of of rotor. 4. press or squeese caliper piston back into caliper. 5. install new pads on rotor setting pads into bracket that holds caliper. 6. make sure you use brake caliper lube on ends of pads. and use disc brake quiet on back of bads. 7. reinstall caliper back on bracket and over pads.

The education background of a diesel mechanic is a lot of schooling. One will have to learn air brakes, cooling systems, diesel motors, and power trains to become a diesel mechanic.

Depending on what you mean by breaks, if you engine is no longer pressurized the diesel will not combustion in the cylinder. Diesel has to be pressurized before it will ignite, unlike gasoline.
