Just bought my first powerstroke!

I just bought a 00ex xlt lariat for 6500 bucks!

Truck is clean needs a little work but nothing I can't handle (mechanic, drive powerstroke diesel tow trucks) But for the price I couldn't pass it up.

Looking forward to asking questions and stuff since I have never owned a diesel that I want to mess with lol. She will be my tow rig along with work rig. Glad to be here pics to come.

edit-- Where do you guys go for glow plugs and which ones? Remember I am coming from offroading jeeps so if you need help there let me know lol!

It has 240k on it- yea ohh well lol. Only issue I truly need to figure out is the short in the column. If I push the overdrive button it blows the number 10 fuse. So I don't push it lol. I just need to get under and trace those wires and fix it.

3 owners I have the carfax on it. There a recall that needs to be done I don't have all the info on the truck for that. I am bringing her home thursday mornin for a wash and wax lol. Ohh and a glow plug needs to be replaced. That is going to suck.

Thanks for the welcome.

Shorted wiring

The shorted wiring is in the shifter,it's the two wires that go up the shifter in to the overdrive switch. It's a commen problem you have to replace the shifter.They cost around $70.00 you have to pull the ignition out to replace it. very simple 20min job.

I worked on it for the shifter issue. I can not get it to put the truck in limp mode or coast mode. The Fuse doesn't blow like the guy told me.
