Welcome to the Jungle. If you ever need your truck scanned several of us have what it takes to do it. The free scans at the auto parts store will not work on these trucks. Sorry about the 6.0, but hopefully the prior owner did some if not all of things that need to be done to make one reliable. Look for a buddy of mine in the CPA, his username is Mudrunninpig and his name is Mike. He has one of the nicest 6.0's on the forum. He can give you more details on what to do. I am currently looking for a clean 7.3 for my son who is currently in the Air Force in Minot North Dakota, so if you run across a 4x4, crew or super cab 99-03 7.3 give me a PM .
