  1. 6.4L Problems Forum
    I recently bought a f350 and it's my first diesel so there was some negligence on my part as far as knowing what to look for before buying. It has 90k on it, but it seems the previous owner neglected to drain the water separator regularly. Recently popped the p0088 code, had it diagnosed and...

    wwll My CCLB had the common rusty bedsides of our gen trucks. But were covered up by fender flares when I bought the truck. Once I saw the rust creeping out from under the flares well..ok its time. Now before I get bashed for the body work I will say this. The bed rails under the floor are crap...

    Hi folks. I recently took ownership of a 2003 F250 6.0 that needs some work. I'm looking to get some opinions on whether I should keep it and sink money into it, or sell it and look for something else/better. What would you do, considering its condition? These trucks are hard as hell to find in...

    Hello all, I'm very new to the forum so forgive me if I mess up. I recent bought a 02 7.3 and since the weather has gotten better in CT I crawled underneath my truck.

    I am in the process of eliminating rust on the bottom of my doors. It's going good except for the little plastic clips that hooks the weather strip on. Its a pain in the a** to sand around them and I already broke some of them. Is there a way they come out and is there somewhere I can buy new...

    Hey y'all, I have a 2006 F350 XLT and I the rust is really starting to show through on the rear fender wells. I was wondering if any of y'all know if they make a fender flare where a person can cut out the rust and bolt on the new fender. Also having the same issue up in the front.

    As you can see, my bed and frame were in need of some serious repair. Since I bought this truck, I've been doing a ton of work to it. So far, everything has been maintenance or essential mods to the drivetrain. This time around (other than the hutch and harpoon mods) I decided to start work...

    So I changed my filters last week on my new to me 2008 F250 (140k miles) after I purchased it and noticed some discoloration at the bottom of the upper fuel filter housing. I didn't think too much of it while changing the fuel filter until I read a post with some information about the...

    Can someone give me an idea on what someone will pay for rust free doors on an obs? I always run across them at local junkyards with not much body work needed on them, and feel obligated to pick them up.

    This picture is of the #8 cylinder in a motor out of a 2001 E350, I am planning on putting it in a 2002 F250. It was purchased from a wrecking yard, supposedly it ran good when pulled with 163k miles on it. It was on an old tire on a pallet when I got it. The oil pan was punched with a...

    Hey all- I'm going to start the body work repair on my 99 this winter. I'm going to cut out the rusted out fenders on the box, repair the dents & etc. :mad: Are there any suggestions to "the best paint" to use, or is it just painters opinion? I'm staying with the stock silver color, but might...
