what goes and when?

Hi Everyone,

My truck has performed like a champ since i bought it (1 year ago, knock-knock) Very much due to the help of you guys. I've been a good boy, and got right on things that needed to be done...

I have 122k on it now and am wondering what repairs you all did around this point?

-just wondering what to keep an eye/ear on for the next thing needing to be replaced.

Thanks!

ok, I'll start...LOL

truck is in the shop getting axle joints. seized at 122k. carrier bearing went recently as well. so, ujoints are an expected replacement around the 'buck-and-a-quarter' mark in snowy areas

Ball joints, wheel bearings, and carrier bearing. I've done two outta the three, carrier bearing is up next. Oh, if you're chipped, start saving for a tranny... Mine has 138K on it. It'd also be a good time to change all the fluids if you haven't yet.

Ya If chipped or tow alot atleast your T/C is taking a beating, balljoints, carrier bearings and wheel bearings, U-joints next lol, Glowplugs, possible injectors depending on quality of fuel most areas, filters, turbo depending on usage as well, up-pipe gaskets, intercooler boots, ebv valve sticking, p/s pump failure, serpentine belt.

There are some things that will last alot longer than this, these are a good starting point to look at. Ive seen some people go alot longer than this without as many things replaced but I have also seen a truck where if ya replace it before it "needs" to be done it will last you a hell of alot longer.

Ive personally seen 1.2 million miles on an OBS powerstroke and the guy worked the hell out of that truck every single day and it started every single day until he sold it lol, They are awsome trucks, take care of it and it will take care of you

thanks!

yup - trying to take care of it.
good list! some of which is already taken care of, others not: PS pump, injectors, turbo. I'll try to preform some EBPV maintenance soon and I'll keep my ear on the turbo.

I think the spring time list will be EBPV actuator o-Ring/pedestal removal & check turbo, a couple oil leaks, and up-pipes (prolly to the IH pipes).

this thing keeps me busy for sure but, it's cheaper to pay for occasional repairs than make car payments.

thanks all, keep 'em coming...

Thats for sure lol, Id much rather spend money on better parts than monthly payments to use it lol.

The other thing I forgot to mention is the front shackle leaf spring bushings go out pretty fast, I would really recommend some poly bushings, no more squeaking and a little better ride. They are a b*tch to swap out tho lol get ready for some kickin and screamin and swearing while doing em

I've got 135k on my 2000. I have replaced: All u-joints,front bearings, rebuilt rear end, clutch, water pump, glow plugs, harnesses and relay, sway bar links, shocks, ball joints, cps, hpop line o-rings, brake rotors, 2 calipers, e-brake shoes. I know there is probably more I can't remember. Now I'm just waiting for the next shoe to drop.
