Okay, so I drove the truck and it seemed to run really well. I noticed a few things, and would like your opinions about them.
1.The truck shifted kind of hard from 1st to 2nd when I first moved it through the parking lot. I may have confused the trans by accellerating and slowing too much. Every f150 I've ever had does this, but I thought I would ask. It shifted smooth every time after that.
2.There was oil or something on the outside of the bellhousing. It wasn't leaking, and didn't look active. My duramax had quite a bit of seepage, and I've always been told not to be concerned until it drips. I'm just leary about the motor in the first place.
I looked at the oil cooler and underside of motor. I didn't see much in the way of leakage or seepage, but it looked like the dealer had cleaned the truck well. The truck didn't have white or blue smoke, and it didn't smell like diesel like my duramax did. The turbo lit very well and the throttle was very responsive. Truck is a one owner with very low mileage. Overall I was very impressed with how it ran. Is there anything I should be cautious about? Thanks in advance!
