Never buying used again...
Bought my 2008 in March 2013...so far:
New Fuel system
Went to install a locker yesterday and found a shot pinion bearing, pitted and chipped ring gear, among a few other things.
Can't wait for the transmission to break in half and cost me another $5000.
I'll never buy another used Powerstroke...because I'll never be able to recover from this one...I paid $26,500 for it...I will have another $21,000 in it after the rear end gets rebuilt. If the tranny goes then I'll be over the original purchase price!
oh and I think I have an injector going out...getting a "Cylinder/contribution code" brand new Ford units with 22k miles. junk junk junk
