new to diesel
lost my 02 150 5.4l 4x4 ccsb to a tree, after some time going back and forth with insurance it was totaled. have my eye on a used 08 250 6.4l 4x4 ccsb lariat, 34k miles, job 1 07/07 as a replacement.
just looking for some input about the sale, upkeep, reliability, etc.
have yet to get a chance to go in and see it...assuming nothing has been repaired already, i understand that the 08s radiator may have a problem...anything else visual i can check out or look out for? ive seen some threads about the intercooler and fuel pump having problems, not sure how to check that at the dealership. any of this stuff still covered under warranty?
they want $36k, still deciding on what to offer, thoughts? i'll be paying cash, trucks been on the lot for 3 months, thinking 27k. may get laughed at but im definetly offering under 30 to start
upkeep seems 5k oil (self), 10k fuel filter (self), 30k trans (shop)
what about the day to day stuff? what needs to be done every time you drive? let idle before moving and shutdown? check for water in fuel?
any input is appreciated
