Exclamation looking to purchase 2001 F250 w/2nd gear issues

Hi,

Looking at this 2001 F250 4x4 7.3 long bed with the 6 speed and it won't always go into 2nd gear. Sounds to me like a synchronizer problem. 171k on chassis. He wants $9300. He's been shifting form 1-3rd to avoid 2nd.

Question: should I avoid this one? Or yes, it's worth it even with the problem?

Thanks all that reply.

Bill

decided against this one

Not only did the trans have issues. Overall it looked pretty tired. I'll keep looking. Thanks!
