Well I cant believe what has happened!!!CHECK THIS OUT!

Hello to all, Thanks up front for any and all advice.
Well guys I took the plunge today and purchased the 2005 F350 that I ask for advice about two days ago. I have a story to tell about this and my luck I don’t think is to good. I researched and researched all the info I could before I made the decision to purchase. The carfax was good, the oasis was good with only three recalls and no major work as far as head, egr, or any of the troublesome stuff. I dug a little deeper and found out that the truck had originally came from a dealership where I had a friend that is the service manager. He looked up what records he could find on it and I learned the egr had been replaced at 121,767 miles, it had #6 injector replaced, new back brakes, new pinion seals due to a leak, the cac hose was leaking at the turbo end and at the cooler end both hoses replaced and an oil change. This is all the info I could find on the truck and I decided to make the purchase. So I went and picked up the truck today, drove it around all evening. I went to friend’s house to show off the new toy. I left and came home and about 30 mins later my buddy called and said there was a big oil spot in his driveway. I went out to the truck and looked up under it there was some oil on the cross member but not enough to cause a leak like he explained. So my next move was to start the truck and look. I started the truck and what did I see, the far back manifold on the passenger side has some but not a whole lot of oil bubbling around it. This is the kind of luck I have and big fat one right in the kisser. So what kind of bad news can all you powerstrokers tell me about this? Please help!!!!!!! The truck has 121,900 mile on it. Thanks Joey!

I would take it back to the dealer. It's BS 150 miles later the truck is having issues. There is a good chance the heads might have to come off to fix this problem.

I have to agree with all of the above, the truck should go back. Do not wash or wipe anything off. Take it just like it is so they can see what you see and do it asap. Good Luck and keep up informed. I hate that this has happened to you. Oh and btw, Welcome to the Org.

without looking at the truck its almost impossible to say , but an 05 model is mosy common to leak from the front crank seal, in an amount enough to drip, all these trucks are known to seep a little oil, just take it back and not be a azz but be persistant that you need this leak fixed , if you just bought it they should take care of it
