At least it isn't white.
Yeah, I didn't think of that.Also have a hard time believing it is a manual
Yikes! Hope you work close to home, couldn't stand the 2 hour commute to get 20 miles...I will never work out of anything but a cube van again.
I have a 14' E350 with the 5.4 triton gas. 10mph loaded all day,
I live 20 minutes from town and drive all over. It's slow, get passed by old people with handicap plates allll the time.RobertCDF said:Yikes! Hope you work close to home, couldn't stand the 2 hour commute to get 20 miles...
Probably the only reason they are selling it has the 6.0 and that alone is a big mystery with Ford .They replaced all of the 6.0 work trucks at the company with the V10 2 years ago The mechanic could not keep them running Between the fuel tanks and the injectors we needed our own Tow truck. I would stay away from it..My last f150 had the 5.4. I loved that engine, it ran like a dream, too bad the rest of the truck rotted away from it. I'm still kind of up in the air about it, I might go check it out sometime next week.
I've never owned a diesel, so I'm kinda iffy on the whole thing, especially the issues I hear about the 6.0. I might call my friend who's a diesel mechanic and see if he has time to come look at it with me.
A whole year.How many miles do you have on it .If you are close to 60,000 than start looking for another truck .I know a lot of owners of the 6.0 and they did not consider themselves A HOLES until after they bought the truck with that motor.If you use it to take your wifes bike to the beach or carry 3 tons of tools .It is going to be a nightmare.But then you might be one of the few lucky ones.The older 7.2 lasted until the body fell off the frame from rust .Minimum 200,000 milesAlmost a year and no issues here with my 6.0. Like anything else if you care for it and don't drive like an A hole it's very reliable.
I liked the 5.4. When I first had mine, it had leaking exhaust manifolds, so I had to get those replaced. But that thing ran like a dream. The body ended up rotting away from the frame.The 5.4 is a very reliable motor. Only issues I've heard is an occasional spark plug ejection and occasional broken exhaust manifold bolts. Ive had one plug blow out and it cost me $400 to have it repaired. Thats out of 10 years with that van. My box van has the 5.4 too. So far so good.
