My new "used" 6.0 starting some problems....
Well i bought my 03 SD 2wd Super Cab short bed about 2 months ago. Great lookin truck, white, and grey inside. Test drove it.... Sounded sweet, no lag, good brakes, no oily spots, he has some records of the work done.
recall 06e17, 59b01, Trans flush.
Coolant sys flush (Motorcraft Prem. Gold) , Changed Diff fluid.
ICP SENSOR AND CONNECTER,
note from mech, "wire harness damaged by soaking oil"
I got a stack of oil change paper work that has been done atleast 2 times a year, if not 4.
When i bought it, it had 107000. He wanted 14k well i offered him 10,500. and he took it.
Now theres the back ground. Heres the problem.
drove it 25 mins or so, and stopped noticed a slight "miss" "rough idle" and it wasnt really consistent.
driving in town for a bit, pull to a red light and it starts "missing" i shift it to N and it stops, shift to P and it stops and comes back.
long haul and back to town, started again. so i parked it and let it idle some. It "missed" for about 2 mins and went away?????
Remind you that this is really Intermittent, and its not a bad or harsh idle. Just makes me worry some. Matter fact i drove it about 3 hrs today and never missed a beat, great spooling, and hauling azz.
A few more details, No muff or kitty. I can hear everything. Oil change is due in about 400 miles, and thinking about doing both fuel filters.
If someone could point me in the right direction for a Oasis report.
I know its long, but its all the details.
Thanks in advance
