Miles on your 7.3L ??

Hello folks,
I am new to the board, and looking to purchase a 2000-2003 diesel Excursion.

How many miles have your 7.3L Powerstrokes been running before needing rebuild/replacement?


Thanks,

I just turned 199,000 and still running strong I've replaced: water pump, CPS, HPOP, FPR, and trans. I know a guy that has a 2000 F-350 with 404,000 on his and he said its still running good he had it in the shop needed new turbo and 2 injectors replaced besides that it was fine and he pulls a trailer 5 days out of the week now thats Built Ford Tough. It is reassuring to me to know that I probably got a good 200k or more left possibly.

Looking for 05-07 front end with Harley Lights
