6.0 Purchasing Help
Iím in the market for a Super Duty. Kind of in the middle where I want the newer style body but canít afford anything 2006+ but donít really want anything older than 2002 (body wear, etc). That leaves me in the 2003-2005 year range that seems to be the best combination of price and mileage. As Iím aware, these trucks came with the 6.0 liter. Iím pretty well versed in gasoline engines but pretty new to the diesel game. It seems like I canít read an article anywhere, or a post on any forum where someone isnít bashing this engine.
I donít plan on doing any mods to the truck. The question I have is, if I buy a 2003-2005 with a 6.0 liter, do I really have to have serious concerns about the truckís reliability. Iím surprised that Ford didnít correct any issues with this motor after the 2003 launch. If owners had issues, did they not correct them in 2004,2005? The specs on this motor look great, but I donít want to have to worry every day of it malfunctioningÖ Were they THAT bad a design?
