I've been looking for a mint condition used diesel truck off and on for about year or so. Let me tell you, it isn't easy finding a super mint PSD truck at a great price. I personally think the 05-07 SuperDutys look the best, but I am worried about the 6.0L gremlins. However, I couldn't pass up the great deal on the truck. I mean the body and frame look like it has never seen rain!
I purchased an 2005 F-350 RC XLT FX4 6.0L with 6,000 miles on it back in October from a Ford dealer. Since then I have 8,400 on it now.
Considering that the truck was built on 02/2005 and has only 8,400 miles on it I would like to fix all the problems while the truck is still in new condition and do this in a budget friendly manor.
1.) I purchased a Genuine Ford ESP PremiumCare 3yr/36,000 warranty (best). $1,800
***Does this warranty cover all the 6.0L problems?***
I researched the warranty to no end but the descriptions of the parts covered are somewhat vague.
2.) After purchasing the truck I heard that out of the 05-07 PSD's the 05 isn't very good.
**What is the different between 05-07's and if there is, can I update it?**
3.) After researching this site, I am going to install the following:
Coolant filter kit = dieselsite w/extra filters and ball valve
Coolant = CAT ELC (flush with VC-9 and distilled water 1st)
Gauges = Edge Insight CTS
Tune = SCT X3
Exhaust = MBRP 4" cat back with muffler delete.
Oil change = Rotella and Motorcraft filters
How did I do, any other suggestions?
Thank you and I look forward to being a member on this site!
