How would you feel?
Hey hows it going, my name is Steve I am a new member to this forum and hope im putting this in the correct spot.
I have just bought a 2006 1 ton 6.0L with a 6 speed manual transmission and 200,000km the truck is completely stock besides an 8 Inch lift and 35" tires
and i absolutely love this truck, I have just received from the local dealership a list of all the work done to this truck while it was on warranty.
the FICM Module has been replaced, as have the High pressure fuel pump twice.
only 2 injectors have been changed since 2006
cracked turbo rings, EGR and a few other small things and many reports of lack of power. the last work done to this truck was in 2010 on warranty and the warranty has just ended within the last 4 months.
does this sound like a truck that will be nothing but problems for me?
or should i take the report as a warning.
(it goes into a performance diesel shop for EGR Delete, Chip and ARP Headstuds on January 7th)
I have also been smelling burnt coolant as of late, not frequently but maybe once every 2 weeks after driving on the highway etc.. also smokes alot on startup but when at operating temperature never.
Thank you for your responses i am very new to diesels and this forum and am looking for somebody elses opinion on the matter!
