if its at the ford dealer they can give you the history for the vin. So you can see what recalls and problems it has had. This only tells you the problems that were noted by the ford dealer. the warrenty probably just ended so most problems would of been taken care of by the ford dealer. I got my 03 from the dealer and made sure i didnt have any major repairs.

well when i go and look at a 6.0 i usually pull the egr its easy only 2 - 8mm bolts (i believe) get a ladys foot prybar and pop its out the egr is $350 so its worth the check plus that will tell you if the egr cooler is bad ive seen alot of auction trucks with that problem in my shop

Depending on the inspections where you live I'd plan on blocking the %$#* EGR cooler anyway. IF it's not already leaking, that is. If it's putting out white smoke that is also an indicator that the EGR cooler may be leaking.
Ask the guy about filter changes and whether he used Motorcraft filters. The oil and top fuel filters are easy to check. Ask if he's changed the air filter. Has he souped it up with an aftermarket programmer on the stock head bolts?
If you pull the EGR valve, yes it is two 8 mm bolts and a 6" extension would help. It will also help to have a 10 mm socket to remove the intake elbow first.

Ask him how often he changed the oil and fuel filters? How much towing did he do with it? When you start it watch for white smoke or anytime during the test drive! Pull the cap off the degas bottle and check for any signs of puking (any white stuff around the degas bottle) that's all I can think of right now! Make sure if you do purchase it change your fuel filters and oil and filter even if he says he just changed them only use motorcraft filters good luck!
