alright so i just got back from the test drive and start up of the truck. got there and popped the hood open felt the turbo and it was stark cold. so i was like ok good. now get in let the glow plugs cycle. started right up with no miss or long cranking...so that is good. but i go out back and looks to be like white smoke on startup.(it is dark out and was shineing a flash light on the exhaust.) now form what i understand that white/blue on start up was normal? correct?
took the oil cap off NO blowby what so ever
tranny oil level good. no dirty oil or grime on the rearend so no leaks there.
took it out for a spin. tranny seems fine. overdrive locks in very solid. OD button works,, no slip inbetween any gear.
brakes SUCK..need rotors/pads...rear caliper sticking on the drivers side
motor seems to run out fine, turbo boosts fine.
tranny shifts good under WOT
took the oil cap off again after the drive and no blow by agiain
all in all i walked away for now. talked him down to 4000 cash right now
but within a week i think i can get him down to 3500
good deal or what?????
i will let you know what happens
