2004 6.0L Question

Hello All,

(Sorry if this is the incorrect forum for this question.)

Awhile back, I read on another website that "early" 2004 F-250 6.0's had a major engine defect, which was fixed on "later" 2004 models. They said to stay away from those early 2004's at all costs. I can't locate that post anymore - now that I've found one to purchase.

Does anyone here know about the defect, and whether a truck manufactured/delivered to the dealer in May 2004 would have the defect?

Thanks for any info.

I have an early 04 build X and the only thing that I have seen is the wiring chaffing problem that was addressed in TSB 05S34, I think. It affected the FICM wiring harness. It might even be a safety recall.

I posted this on another website, and they remembered a change in the transmission mid-year 2004. The 4-speed was replaced with a 5-speed, which they said is much better. Any opinions here?

Thanks.

I have the 5 speed so I don't know. Is that for the SD's only?
