problems with a 2002

I am looking in to getting a 01 or 02 or 03 4x4 crew and was wondering what issues that are normal for these trucks to have?


thanks

WELCOME to the site!! I drive an 02, and other than the fact that I cant make the same powerr that the 6ohs can, I am completely satisfied. I guess it depends on what you will be doing with the truck too. As far as common problems- Put a spare CPS in the glove box and start driving!!

Also these trucks are really heavy up front and ball joints can be an issue also. Another problem is rusty oil pans so inspect the oil pan. You have to pull the engine to replace the pan. They are almost bulletproof you will be happy with anyone of those years.

I have a 2002 F-250 Crew Cab 4x4 short box.

Never had a t-case problem, ball joints replaced at 120,000 miles, wheel bearings are still oem and have 150,000 miles on them, glow plugs still oem with 150,000 miles on them, although I am going to replace them this summer.

These trucks are built rock solid, if they are driven hard and worked hard but yet well taken care of they will last for ever. Your body will fall apart before the engine stops running.

Common problems, cps (cam Position Sensor), ball joints, tranny, wheel bearings. Those I would say are the most common things I hear people talk about.

I change my oil every 5,000 miles I run only Rotella 15w40 and I use only fram Oil Filters. I also change my fuel filter every oil change.

I am not saying what I do will have your truck last longer then normal but it is what works for me.

No problem, one thing is look at the problem parts listed. Hmmm they are all wear and tear parts for the most part. Ball joints, Brakes, Wheel Bearings, U-joints, Carrier Bearing, Shocks, Alternator, Starter, I could keep going. These are all things that will wear out over time. So it really is not the truck that is the problem it is owning the truck and paying to replace these items when they do wear out.


Where you from by the way. Maybe a fellow member lives close enough to you to go look at a truck you are thinking about buying.
