newbie hoping to pick up an 02
Hey guys. I test drove an 02 excursion today. Seemed ok but i've never owned a diesel before especially a powerstroke. When i got onto the highway and gave it gas it accelerated but the sound seemed kinda.. umm... stuttery? the power didnt seem to fluctuate just the turbo noise sounded a little strange. NO smoke on startup no smoke when execrating. shifted well. Horrible brake shake when slowing down off hwy. The front passenger door wouldn't unlock or lock automatically. And the door ajar light stayed on the whole time although all the doors were shut. The motor at idle was actually much quieter than i thought it should be so i think thats a good thing.
CAn you guys give me some suggestions on what to look for and what are the common problems with the 02 excursions?
Thank you in advance for your time.
Hopefully if everything is ok with it i might pick this thing up
