Newbie looking at a 2001 F-250 but needs injectors

I'm contemplating buying a 2001 F-250 with 185k miles on it. He wants 4000 dollars because it needs new injectors. Should that scare me away? If the injectors went bad should I be looking at other problems and costs? Paying 4k and then fixing the injectors I'll be tapped out so I wanted some opinions from guys that know these engines. Thanks

You take the chance of buying a money pit no matter what you buy. I would get it if it were me put some stock injectors in her and see what happens. Your buying one hell of a motor. What work has been done to it?

Yeah, every vehicle has its risk. He said all he's done is change the right front wheel bearing. No chip installed, and the 4wd actuator needs replaced.

I'm intrigued because I like working on trucks, might be something easier than the injectors. But it might be more than I can handle, only the bearing being changed is good and bad.

They ain't that hard to work on and if you run into a problem there are more than enoght people here to help.
A set of injectors and an actuator ain't bad. What it comes down to is what you want. Like I said before I would buy it in a heart beat. They are strong long lasting Pickups.

The only thing that would stop me from buying a vehicle is major body rot, trashed bodywork, frame, etc (provided the price is cheap enough). But...I'm prepared to deal with just about anything. You have to decide if you're up to the job of dealing with the unseen that might show up.

That seems like a good price for what repairs MIGHT be needed.

I would like to warn you about these transmissions though. They are the weak link if not taken care of. Well, that is if it has the auto trans.

What exactly is the truck?

A set of stock stick is what like 900 bucks if you do it your self. That's not bad deal body rust and frame rot would scare me more then repairable stuff.

I would get a compression test before you buy it because you don't know if it is the injectors that way if the compression is good I would go for it.
