Will be a Powerstroke owner tommorow.
So I have decided to buy a diesel for hauling purposes and the better mileage than a gas truck. My F150 5.4 averages 12-13(it's a company truck and I floor it everywhere and cruise at 90). I am looking at either a '01 F350 Supercab dually automatic 2wd with 139K miles for $14,000 or a '02 F350 Crew Cab Dually automatic 4x4 for $18,000. I would rather have a manual transmission if I can find one, but may get an auto.
What do I need to be on the lookout for when I check them out?
How can I tell if the automatic transmission is good or ready to poop itself?
How many miles are these motors good for if taken care of?
