About to buy a 2002- Few Questions.
Hi guys. this is my first post and as the title says, i have a few questions. My dad has a 2002 F250 with the 7.3 and i am about to pull the trigger on the same truck with 150,00 miles. I only have a few questions- th oil was last changed 2000 miles ago and is black as molasses. is this normal? my dads 2002 with 2000 miles on the oil is still clean.
There are a few hoses that connect to the front brake caliper- on for ABS, another for the actualy fluid- what is the third one for? its ripped off on the passenger side, but still in tact on the right side. Any ideas?
My other concern is more for smog- when i stomp on the gas gas in neutral with the one im about to buy there is a quick puff of black smoke- i know this is normal for any diesel, BUT, since i live in the great state of CALIFORNIA, will this be an issue with smog?
There arent any modifications to the engine, and the tranny was rebuilt at 135,000. as well as the ball joints, brakes, and shocks.
Any help or advise would be greatly helpful as i need to know asap- id be buying the truck in about 4 hours!!
