06 f250 king ranch

Hey everyone I am going to look at an 06 f250 KR this week. It has 95k miles and he wants 23000. From the pics it looks immaculate. This will be my first diesel ever so my question is: this seams to be a very good deal so do you think I should have anything to worry about or what should I primarily check for? Sorry for such a dumb question but I am very new to this. Thanks

nothing really you can check for unless you have a scanner or something to check out deltas. make sure the truck isnt already running when you get there and that it is dead cold. fire it up let it run for 3-5 mins and take it for a drive. check for oil leaks. ask about history on it. has a egr cooler be replaced. what performance mods does it have i perferr none so i know it had been beat on before me.

The oil temp and the coolant temp. Coolant temp should be around 190 and the oil temp should be no more than 15* difference. Meaning deltas

Typically it's around 2-5* difference I would say though.

Definitely check the Ect/Eot temps running 65+ all warmed up. Delta's should be around 10 degree or less. If it's maintaining anything around 15 degree difference it's in need of a new oil cooler. Check around the degas cap for any signs of coolant loss. Check to see if the Egr is still there. Check for oil leaks. (these trucks are known for them) probably not a big deal if it's a small leak. Check to see if it's been "studded" 12 pt. nut threaded to the stud vs. a 6 point hex bolt. (You may luck out with studs) Pay attention to how the transmission shifts. Long laggy shifts aren't good. Also $23k is a little high imo. That sounds like high retail. I'd try and get him down around $20k atleast. The market is flooded with these trucks and if he needs to sell he'll bite. Good luck on your purchase!

Oh and service records are always a huge plus. If you can get the vin # from the seller prior to checking it out there are several guys on here that can get you an Oasis report wich will show everything done to the vehicle as long as it was at a Ford dealership. I'd definitely look into that first and foremost. You'll know for the most part if it's been a problem truck or not. Good luck bud!
