Cousins buying a 6.0

My cousins buying a 2005 f250 w 95k on it. Owner said he just spent 9k on head studs and replaced the egr, he said the only thing wrong w the truck is the turbo makes a noise under acceleration. Does the truck just need a turbo? Should he run from this truck?

No. He should sell the current owner ocean front property in Kansas. Someone made some really good money off that head stud/egr replacement that he paid for.

How long ago did he get the studs done? I'd ask where he got it done and try to talk to whoever did the job...if it was done recently, the tech may have some insight into the truck. Tell the seller that you want to take it to a mechanic to have it checked out first. Good luck.

I would take it to someone with a computer and have everything monitored. Have them monitor the EOT and ECT very closely. Then have them pull the oasis. Turbo could end up costing $1,500 installed. Also, If the egr was replaced did they go with bullet proof and did they do the oil cooler at the same time?

My cousin said he had it done under warranty when the truck was still covered now it's just the turbo making a noise. I told him to get an oasis report for it

If he looks it over good, and the price is right, he should be ok. I would'nt be suprised that he ended up with some bad ones. The first place people take their problems to unload them is a dealer. I'm sure he's gottin burned before with the six o.

well 9k would buy a whole new motor, or at least close to it. if dealer fixed all the other stuff why woldnt they do the turbo, sounds fishy to me. ihave a crewcab longbed for sale for 12k has headstuds and egr done on it. but cant sell it cause no bank will finance a owner vehicle anymore, i had a friend goto 2 banks and both said if he'd goto a dealer theyd loan him the money,so the moral of story people are trading in broke down vechiles and dealers are just fixing what they have to so they can sell them. then you go back pay to fix it for them.

Yea sounds weird to me too, the headstuds and eye were done under warranty and the turbo must have just recently taken a crap so the owner wants to just get rid of it. It's a shame bc my cousin would prob buy your truck being a crew long w head studs
