#8 cyl damage with only 85K miles?
My brother in law just bought a used 2002 F350 with 85,000 miles. A week after he bought it it started running rough. His mechanic put a new fuel pump on it. Now 5 weeks later it started blowing black smoke and running very rough. The mechanic pulled the engine and said he has cylinder wall and piston damage in the #8 cylinder.
Does this sound possible for an engine with 85k miles? I'm beginning to think the truck might have had 285K miles on it.
