That has a 6.0.....horrible engine. Also whoever owns it; i doubt is going to privately finance it for me.

I will see what the mechanic says it is worth....he drives the same truck so I'm sure he knows it inside and out.

Go to a bank for financing.

Plus a private loan won't help you build credit.

Yeah and I'm sick of fixing it. Long story short.....I did a couple months in the county a few years ago and my ex wife sold my suburban and every tool I owned. My dear mother got me set up with tools for 3 and a 95 dakota. I have put 70,000 hard miles on the dakota and it is extremely tired.

If you managed to finance a house your credit can't be that hammered, just save up a few more duckets and get something financed at a reasonable rate.

I know the feeling about fixing old junk, did it for many years. Past 3 vehicles have been brand new, keep em 3-4 years and buy a new one. All financed.

Re: 6.4 Powerstroke


I had a 6.0 with studs and EGR delete. 350 crew long bed, 5" pipes, 4" lift. Loved that thing, but it was getting up there in miles, and the Powerstroke is notoriously chitty engine. From what I've heard, the 6.4 is worse.

I sold mine and got a Cummins. Love the engine, but Dodge drivetrains and transmissions are about as bad as Ford engines.

If you get it, there are a few expensive items in the Powerstroke. 1 is the HPOP, (High-Pressure Oil Pump). It last about 150,000 miles, and costs 2 grand to replace.

If it has tuner, it's quite possible (probable) that it has excessive wear on the engine. Those engines weren't designed to run like that, but every Jayhole with small-d!ck syndrome has to go supe them up. Result, the engines last about 1/4 as long as they should.


Just some stuff to think about.

Have your wife co-sign your bank loan, build some credit.
