That's the only thing I could think of. Was really hoping that wasn't the case. Shame is, I've bought several vehicles from this dealership, and referred several cust. to them. I guess they're in the money making business not friend making. Seems like they would be required to tell if the engine had been replaced.:dunno: And how would that affect the warranty? Different warr on this motor?:confused:

There may be a different warranty on the engine there may not be. Let me recheck that quick:thumb:

Thanks again, Dave. I'll ask them.

I was under the impression that dealers fell under a "full disclosure" law when it came to things as serious as engine replacement. Then again, title has to be clean, or the bank would have balked on the loan.:dunno: Any guardhouse lawyers around that know about these sorts of things?

Nope not regarding engine replacement or things like that. Thats only for salvage titles and the like

i would think that if the authorized dealer replaced the engine, with a reman, it should still hold the original warranty for the truck, and hold a modified ( maybe extended ) warranty for the motor. or maybe they just kept it under the original 5 yr 100K warranty.. talk to the dealer to make sure your covered..

Thats really what I was asking. If there would be an extention for the motor warranty. I'll have to find out from them.

I certainly plan on talking to the dealer. Loudly. And in short, four letter bursts.:Rant:

What's up Sam? That bites about the OASIS! Did you buy the truck locally? I should probably get an OASIS on mine as well. Like you, I wish had known about the OASIS before a purchased my truck. What color is your truck? I've seen some black and some silver 08's running up and down HWY 16.

Hey Big O. Yeah, I purchased local. Won't throw the name out on the forum tho. (Even as irritated as I am with them) The .org doesn't like us to do that.

My truck is blue, but, I don't run 16 a whole lot. I work in Geismar, so most of the time I go through Walker. Definately get an oasis. You may learn things you didnt want to know.:wink[3]:

I didnt want to know, but needed to. If something happened later on, I would have looked like a jackazz if whoever had to tell me that was a reman engine in my truck.

Won't be too hard to recognize my truck when I get those powerstroke.org stickers on it. (when they get here):thumb:

Is there a way to find out how many miles the truck had on it when they replaced the engine?:dunno:

Thanks Dave. Makes sense. He traded it in right after engine swap. Had 48xxx when I bought it. Can see it in a good light, I basically have a brand new psd.

The short block is only the block assembly. The heads and other parts are reused. They must have done something to scar number 8. It's a good thing it didn't come with the bad block.

Probably kept running it with a problem.

You can't keep running the truck with a problem. Seems a lot of people do though.:dunno:
