Is a 1991 F250, 4X4, automatic w/300,000 miles a good by?
Hi, if you noticed from last post, I am still looking to buy a used Ford F250 or F350 diesel pickup. A local guy in Cutler Ridge (Miami) FL is selling his 1991 F250 4x4 automatic diesel with about 300,000 miles. He is asking about $3000. I read that these 7.3 L engines are prone to cavation unless the coolant is not changed often. Is apply to all 7.3 L engines regardless of the year. I want a realiable, easy to repair, cheap parts, pickup. Is this vehicle a good choice? The guy has done 80% of his own repairs too.
Also another guy is selling a 1995 F350 Crew Cab non-dually, with 150,000 miles. Does this 7.3 diesel engine also have cavation problems? Do 1995 have a factury turbo?
