New to diesels
I just bought my first diesel today. An 2004 F350 SRW 6.0 with 133000 miles on it for $13,500. My wife already thinks i made a mistake. Did I? I have an Oasis report in hand that says "no recent repair history on vehicle" and "no campaign messages found". What should i be looking for on this report? There are a couple sections that i am not sure of like the "accurate repair notifications" section. It only has a couple statements saying "dont replace FICM assembly without referencing 10-12-06" and "before replacing 6.0l head gaskets refer to 09-08-03".
Secondly, i have read about all the common issues with the EGR and oil cooler etc. but how do i check to see if they have already been replaced? I am a complete noob with these engines and the location of these items or what to even check.
Thanks in advance for any feedback
