Should I buy this F350 6.0L?
I'm in the market for a SuperDuty. My budget puts me pretty firmly in 6.0L era trucks. I've learned a lot just reading here, but I was wondering if anyone could provide feedback on a truck I looked at today ($14k firm). It's a 2006 Lariat short-bed SuperCab with 132k miles. I attempted to monitor the ECT and EOT during a freeway test drive, but my scanner was only showing the ECT (which maxed out around 200*). It was very responsive, moving quickly to ~20psi boost under load. There are a couple of things that concerned me. If either of these look like time bombs (or grenades), I'd appreciate the heads up!
Wet spots around the exhaust manifold on the right hand side (not above it like something dripped down onto it, although I guess this is below the coolant overflow tank):
Minor (?) oil leak. There doesn't seem to be anything above the oil pan gasket line, so I assume it's just a bad gasket?
Top of the engine bay. I assume everything here is stock?
