2004 F250 6.0

Looking at a 2004 F250 6.0, 137,000 miles, all original, no after market upgrades what so ever, 4X4, automatic. What more do you need to know about the truck to give me some feedback so that I will know what I am getting into? They're asking $13,000 for it. Original owner of the truck and I are in South Texas.

I just purchased a 2004 F250 6.0 with 129k for $10k cash. What model is this one?

Using what I learned here I looked at the degass bottle for signs of degassing. If you can get a monitor like the Edge Insight to hook up and test drive that would tell you the deltas between EOT and ECT, anything 15* or more and your going to need to do some bullettproofing.

Look for obvious signs of oil leaking and if any bulletproofing was done ( oil cooler, heads, coolant etc..)

I am real new but have learned soooooo much here. I am absolutley hooked on the 6.0

I am in the process of ordering parts for the bulletproofing. FIrst thing I did was buy the edge insight and watch the engine. So far my deltas have not been more than 9* so I am in hopes that this will last until all the parts are here.

I got what I thought was a great deal on my truck, it leaves me enough room to do the Bulletproofing and still have a truck that is under trade in value. I am very pleased. Not the color I wanted but hey, for 10k I can easily overlook that.

Everyone on here is fantastic, they wont steer you wrong.

if you serious , go to an auto parts store that carries SCANGAUGE, its 150 bucks, works on all obd II vehicles. you can programm fairly quick to read the ford PID,s . take for a drive a scan through the vitals, there are only two i believe it wont check.( egt, fuel pressure )
