Broke before I left the dealership!!!!

So I just bought my first Ford and first diesel this last weekend. After searching and researching for tyhe last month I decided on a 2010 F350 Harley Davidson edition diese with 64k miles. I was so thourough on the phone with the salesman from the dealership (Charles Gabus Ford in Des Moines, Iowa) and was nothing but disappointed. I explained that I needed to trust him because i was driving over 4 hours to see the truck from Minneapolis and blah blah blah. One of the problems is when we took delivery the truck had a squeek coming out of the fronm of the engine bay. I immediately said that is a tensioner puller bearing. They fixed it and out on a new belt, but why would that go out at 64k miles? I realize that bearings like that go all the time but is it common in Powerstrokes? Is the truck telling me something from the previous owner? The rest of the truck is in amazing shape so I could only assume it was well cared for but now I'm not sure?!?!

My truck has a slight squeek from time to time. Is that a PITA to tend to?

Ha!!! It ought not be, but it is... Or, its more of a PITA than it should be.. still, it can easily be done in the driveway, so long as you have enough beer to keep your patience.. its a six pack to a half rack job.

Don't let that discourage you. That doesn't classify as broke on a powerstroke. Those tensioners are a fairly common problem on these trucks.

it very well may have just been the belt (common source of squeaks ) you can't distinguish the two squeaks until the bearing really craps the bed

Just because I have a banner that states "Moderator"
does not mean you can't argue with my opinions !
