Looking to Buy 99 Powerstroke Diesel

Hey Fellas,

I've got a chance to pickup a 1999 F250 Lariat Powerstroke Diesel with 104,000. I'm going to have it lifted at a garage to check out the underneath. What kind of problems should I be looking for?

Thanks,
MountainMomma

---At 104000 it still a baby hahaha, look for oil leaks,and try to find where they come from, check the front end for play, the week point on these trucks is the trans, so check the fluid in the trans and make sure its not burnt,and it wouldn't hurt to get a oil analysis done on the mtr. Check the diff. for any long term leaks, u-joints etc. when you take it for a drive check for wandering, vibrations, shimmy in the stearing, and get them to check the brakes---roters and pads, shoes. check the exaust for holes or heavy rust etc. If you find problems with it , you then have to decide if what your paying for it ,and what may be wrong with it ballance out. then come on back and some of the big guns can help you through the repairs that need doing. I'm no tech, but I hope that helps.---Gord

Check the oil pan real close! If its been around salty roads there could be corrosion on the pan. If its bad there is no easy fix in fact from what I understand you have to pull the motor to replace the pan. Good luck on your purchase they are great trucks!

Oh and Welcome to the ORG! Lots of info and great people!!

The link Stumpy provided works pretty good - the main thing I'd look for is dirt in the intake. Pretty much everything from ball joints, to rust can be repaired cheaper then the engine replacement of 10g's!

Tell us where you're from and maybe someone in your area can look it over with ya!

MountainMomma, Everyone has told you what to look for, so the price would be the next thing. Please post where you are from & is it a 2w or 4w drive.
