Maybe lots of blowby of some sort in the motor. Maybe excessive cylinder pressure?


I could be wrong though.

if it's under warranty and you get a really good deal I'd grab it. The 11s plastic oil pan is known to be ****ty, not too sure about the batteries there may be a wiring issue? And the radiator could be cause for concern, haven't had any issues myself other than steering pump leak and rear window motor so I don't think it's a mass issue.

Yes I'd get warranty. I've read that a few people had issues with rad. hose.
What should I check for next time I check it out?

That's a lot of visits and too many flags for me. I'd avoid it. Upper and lower hose rings, radiator itself, both batteries, all show complete system problems, not isolated incidents (I can see one hose ring, or one radiator, but not all three...same with the batteries)...and all within 7 months. There's something we don't know about the rig or the owner...either way, it'd have to be one hell of a steal for me to deal!

I'd say go for it...

Think about it.. It had 2 radiator hose problems... Then the whole radiator was replaced. Problem solved..

Batteries had a leaking/corrosion issue... Both replaced.. Problem solved...

Oil Pan gasket.. Well thats a normal issue with the 6.7's...

I say go for it.. especially if you've got warranty, and its a solid deal.

I've got them down pretty good on the price and got them up on my trade in value. I'm going to look it over one more time before I decide. I searched and saw they had rad. Issues and oil pan issues. Other than that it seems to be a clean truck

I was fairly certain that the plastic oil pans were causing problems for some people out there, don't get a big dick over it
