looking to buy f350 what are common issues

I am considering to take a closer look at a 06 f-350 with diesel is for sale and i could be considering a closer look at it. i currently have a duramax, so i am familiar with duramax and silverado issues but have not been in the loop with the 6.0 L powerstroke and superduty series. lay it down on me please.---------Thanks

problems - equipped with a 6.0


But seriously, the EGR is the main problem thing on these trucks, so get a new exhaust and ittl be good.

If it is out of warranty the first things I would do to that truck are Headstuds and a complete EGR delete kit. With those two things taken care of the two most problematic issues of the 6.0 motor have been addressed.

Another source of failure for the 6.0 is injector problems. Alot of people run an oil filtration system and they say that it helps out alot with the injectors so you're not gunking up your spool valves.

When tuned with an SCT custom tune they will hold the power well. I have heard of more Allison 1000 failures than TorqueShift failures on the 05-07 trucks.

i have an 04.5 LLY 2500HD. my big issue is the need to upgrade to a 1 ton extended cab or crew cab. i pull a goose neck dump modified to carry 2.5 pulp cord of hardwood logs from deep in the woods to home to process into firewood. i am getting into producing firewood since March and plan to grow a little bigger. i have been pulling loads around 17000 lbs and gross combined is around 26000lbs rolling. my truck has been doing fine thus far.

my buddy has a duramax, the allison cant hold what a 5r100(tranny in 03-07 powerstrokes) can. a stock tranny can hold between 500 and 550 hp before you need to upgrade it
