2000 f350 4x4 will crank but not start Help please
Thanks in advance for reading. My wife and I are looking for a truck. I found this 00' but it is not currently running. The numbers dont add up for replacing the engine, but if I can get it running for 2000 or less I want it.
This is the description of how it failed, as per the father of the driver at the time.
My son was driving it back from Oklahoma and about 1/2 mile from our house, it gave a big puff of black smoke and that was the end. It would still turn over, but wouldn't run anymore. That's about all I can tell you. We had a slightly newer Dodge dually diesel that we put to work in its place, so now it's time to sell the old Ford. That's been about 6 months ago. Kept thinking i'd fix it, but decided i'd rather just sell it.
The owner states 440k on the miles, and states manual trans was replaced 30k ago.
Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated, even if the advice is to leave it sitting where it is.
