New Guy With 6.0L Questions
Hi guys, my name is Frank and I currently drive a 2006 Evo IX. I am considering selling the EVO and my beater car (1987 Pontiac Grand Am) for a 2003 Ford F350 Turbo Diesel.
I found a clean 2003 White F 350, extended cab, regular bed with 65,000 miles on it for $25,000. My mother knows the manager of the dealer and he told me that he will sell me the truck for $21,000.
My main question is what are the main things I should look for?
1) I hear all this bad talk about injectors (I do not know how to check and see if they are ok)
2) I also here that the EGR's get clogged? How do I check that?
Are there any recalls that I should check to see if they have been done?
How do I check to see if the turbo is bad? The only way I know of is to take it off and check for shaft play.
Lastly would anyone in the Monmouth County area be willing to check out the truck for me since I am a total newbie and I don't want to get screwed over.
I look forward to learning alot on this forum.
