common problems w/ 94-03 7.3L
1. Cam sensor (few $$ at the dealer, few minutes of your time)
2. Under valve cover wire for injectors
3. Injector driver module (IDM)
4. Injector control pressure sensor (ICP)

that is i can think of right now.

The Cam sensor is a recall can be fixed by dealer, the fuel system will leak sooner or later between the fuel pump and the fuel filter bowl. Just Orings and stuff getting old. The EBPV on the Turbo leak oil but can be fixed by diconnecting it and putting a plug in it. No real big problems that i've had or herd of. Just little stuff. There not real big on power but can be make to be with anough time and money. Vary relliable trucks depending on how it was taken care of. I love mine.

CPS was $20 at my local Ford truck dealer, aftermarket sources wanted over $100! Also a recent recall for something with the speed control system, some sort of brake pressure switch. If it has a manual trans the flywheel should be upgraded to the solid style, the DM flywheels are junk. Also, the fuel leaks mentioned above if left untouched will leak onto the starter motor and foul it in short time. In fact some chain stores will not warranty a new starter if the core you bring in is covered in grease, there is a note about it in their computer systems. Ask me how I know...
