I haven't done it personally, but i think you can do it with the pan and engine in the truck.

well went back and looked at the truck and crawled under the truck to see where the oil was coming from most of the oil is coming out around the dipstick tube where it goes into the pan. Then it looks like oil is also coming from between the head and block on the back passenger side. not to much but the plastic pan that covers the flywheel is soaked. I passed on the truck. we got down to 12,500 but with the oil leaking was to much for me.

I was also expecting more power the truck seemed kind of doggy. My only other diesel experience is my dads 08 duramax. I know his truck has more power than this 2000 but I was expecting more. It shifted kind of funny real quick to go to 2nd gear then you had to give it a ton of gas to get the turbo to spool. On my dads duramax when it shifts into the next gear it seems like it loads the engine and just scoots along this one just seemed to lag after the shift.

The guy has a programmer for the truck and said its only on the trans mode for shift points then there is a 40,60,100hp settings also. He said he only runs it in the trans mode when he going back and forth to work.

Trans fluid was low was not even on the stick when idling in park. when I shut it off and checked it it came back up to the add mark and was clean and pink. He said that he just goes to jiffy lube and they check it.

Body and interior are real clean nice truck. I just cant get myself to bring something home and leak all over my drive way.

Thanks

Ya if I wasn't going to maintain the oil in my truck myself, then I would take it to a Ford dealer before I'd ever let Jiffylube lay a finger on my trucks.

I am thinking he took good care of this truck. He is pretty anal about it being clean thats for sure. He was showing me the set up he had for changing fuel filters some plastic tube and bottle so nothing got all over the garage when he changed those. The guy seems pretty picky about stuff looking at his wifes car. Their house is in good shape and clean. So overall it looks like he cares for his stuff well.
