lots of idling
first thanks for all the help I have already gleanded from these pages.
Question: I am thinking about buying a 1999 F250 4wd, super cab. It only has 90,000 miles and seems to be in good shape (to my untrained eye).
My concern it that the current owner bought it from a company that used it in the oil field on the north slope of alaska. I susspect that due to the cold temps these truck spend ALOT of time idling. Is this a bad thing? It does have a nice block heater and battery heat. So maybe it was plugged in at leat some.
Any and all thought appreciated. I could get the truck for $13K, hows that sound?
