How much should I offer?

A guy here in town bought this 2004 King Ranch F-250 6.0 about a year ago. Well a few months after buying it the truck started having problems and within the last year it has gotten all new injectors, turbo, and I believe and inter cooler. Well it is still having major problems and nobody knows what's wrong with it. It leaks oil very bad and runs like absolute crap, has around 160k miles.

I want to buy it because I have the ability of pulling the motor and tearing it apart to find the problem. What does everyone think it's worth? He still thinks its worth $15,000.

I bought my 05 King Ranch F-250 w/ 140k miles a year ago with engine problems for $9500......

I wouldn't give him more then 9k at the MOST!!!

He should know or be told that those "new" injectors might very well be toast because of either bad Fuel PSI or Bad FICM

So they carry no weight/price value cuz they are probably no good

Also had to have the transmission rebuilt. It acts as if it's injector o-rings.

What kind of tranny???
Just stock parts or something like a suncoast or BTS?



If stock, so what I wouldn't fall for that bait. It's still only worth 8-9k max...


I mean why would you pay 15k, get into it change parts/ replace engine and have it cost you 18-20k when it's all said and done...
When you could have went and got a DRIVEABLE one for 20k and not have had to worry about the hassle or do the LABOR...


The deal has to be worth it for the buyer... once your done with it, it needs to come out cheaper (by qute a bit) then anything for sale that drives right now... or else why go through with the hassle. right

It was all stock. He has had problems with the truck since day 1. I told him he was crazy to ask that much. I'll probably offer around $7500 to start, just so we have a little room to work.
