Welcome to the org.!

7.3s never give problems!

Most things that do happen are minor and easy enough to fix. Does it seem to perform well? Any major oil leaks?

Enjoy it! They are pretty tuff trucks.

to the ORG!

Take care of it and it should last you a long time. Did they tell you when the fluids were changed? Important so you can figure out your maintenance cycle.

take a look at your coolant, i'd flush it if you don't know the last time it was done. also do your fuel filters, trans fluid, and maybe even the diff/transfercase fluid. the 7.3s sure are strong, we have a e350 at work with over 700K on it, runs like a champ.
