Dumb noob questions

Ok,

I know I'm going to sound like an idiot and get blasting responses, but here it goes. Oh, btw, I'm actually looking to buy a diesel, don't own one yet and tryin to do my research.

Abbreviations, there are loads on here and I have no clue what most are, example, ECT and EOT's. Is there a sticky or thread somewhere I can find out what all of them are?

Thanks,

Grim

Why is Kleancutt here?? All he does is say buy a gas. EOT= oil temp ECT= coolant temp. If you are seriously considering a 6.0 read the "Things to consider about owning a 6.0L" in tech files.

Thank you renegadedooer. That is an informative read. I'm still wanting a diesel, would like a 7.3, but I've read elsewhere that the 6.0 is better once the glitches are corrected. I'm actually really excited to finally be buying a diesel. Trying to find one that has most if not all glitches taken care of.


kleancutt,
I have a gas Chevy now. Not really that happy with it and going to buy a diesel.

Ya get a 7.3L. They are pretty few and far between but they are awesome if you find a good one.

6.0L are sweet if you can find one taken care of with head studs, egr delete, and a few other things. They are just reliable after those problem fixes.

Good luck shopping and welcome. Your smart to be getting rid of that Government Motors crapper haha.

The 6.0 isn't garbage. With proper maintenance it will make you a great truck. A few mods that will help the reliability (especially if you tune it) are: headstuds, EGR delete, coolant filter, drain the ford gold crap coolant and replace it with ELC-1 coolant, and rebuild the oil cooler. I may be forgetting some things but i'm sure someone else will post with better info than "6.0 is garbage" and "buy a gasser"

I put 70k miles on mine with at least 65k of them being tuned and my truck was in the shop twice. Once to get headstuds and egr delete and the other time, the fuel pump went out. I would say that is pretty reliable.
