2003 Ford 4x4
« on: November 23, 2014, 07:48:36 PM »
I've never owned a diesel truck in my life. Been looking at them though.

Is this a lot of miles for a Ford Diesel? He's asking $17,000

I just sold my 2003 F350 SRW 7.3 diesel as a private sale for $12,000.   If it's a 6.0 diesel, walk away.   2003 was the first year for that engine and it is the worst diesel ever made.

No I don't think it has to many miles only question I would ask is what size engine . The 7.3's are good engines but I heard the 6's wasn't. Four doors fetch a little more money 17 seems like a fair price. I am sure other guys will chime in and we will see what there two cents is  ;).

Here is the info I read and got off the phone with him about an hour ago.
After reading Dr. Bucks advice……I've heard enough. Thanks Buck, I appreciate it. :) I did not know that.

Ad:

I have a 2003 ford f350 diesel 4x4 long bed. It has 90, 700 original miles. Its mint, not a thing wrong with it. its the Lariat edition, with all leather and heated seats. No oil leaks, its spotless under the truck and no rust at all. It does have the 6.0 diesel motor, it has had aftermarket head bolts in it, have also added the coolant filter kit. oil gets changed every 4000 miles and my last oil change had both fuel filters replaced. Runs strong and has never been chipped. 17000 firm or it is financed through Wells Fargo, so we can go there and u can take the payments over. call Jimmy at 555-555-5555.

I don't understand why diesel ever costs more than gasoline. Until a few years ago it was always cheaper, wasn't it?

Run goat run!!!!!! 6.0=headache. Some people have good luck with them but I would hate to chance it. No.1 reason it has a EGR and they give trouble. No.2 reason not as much power as a 7.3. No.3 they are known to give head gasket trouble and head trouble due to the strech to yield head bolts. No.4 and the main reason, I don't like um.

I'd say keep looking.
Get a 7.3, or you could get a Cummins and have a real diesel. Too bad they don't put them in Fords.  :D

Junk.

Look for one early 2003 to 1996. Bomber engines. Ive owned two, still own one. Dont do a darned thing to it and my other one is still kicking with no engine breakdowns.

My brand new ford diesel is kicking butt too. They are making a great name for themselves.

I actually like Ford trucks, I just never had much luck with the diesels they put in them. I wish it was like buying a big truck...I want this engine, and this transmission, and this differential. Kinda makes me sad...I'm stuck driving a Dodge to get the Cummins.  :D
