Advice Greatly Appreciated
Hey guys I'm in a little bit of a dilemma.
I bought a 2004 f250 CCSB lariat 6.0 with 138xxx miles on it at the end of a April. Since then I have had it to the shop twice and I've put less than 2000 miles on it. I was smelling coolant and loosing it slowly without it leaking and my boost was way low when trying to accelerate on the hwy
The first time I took it to the dealer they ran a bunch of "tests" and flushed the engine and did a fuel system treatment. Ford said there is nothing wrong with it.
Once I got it back after 2 weeks I took it to a very reputable diesel shop in town. They had me drive it and they plugged a computer and watched everything while I drove.
My temps between the oil and coolant we 22 degrees apart. Ot threw 4 codes. One for under boost, one for The egr, one for something that sounded like an injector, and one for A speed sensor fault.
So now I take the truck back to the dealer and they offer to buy it back for what I paid for it and get me into something different.
Here's the dilemma. I got the truck for 9500 dollars and I'm afraid I won't find anything as nice for the same money/payment, I also don't want to get another vehicle and possibly have issues with it, I know whats wrong with the truck I have now and what it will take to fix it
Should I just give the truck back and start from scratch again or ask them to pay for most if not all if the "bulletproofing" that needs to be done to make the truck right? What would you do?
