Hey all, I've not posted for a while, but I do lurk almost daily......... Anyway, I'm looking (very seriously) at a 2005 F250 turbo diesel, V8 6L in very good shape. 51500 miles, 1450 hrs. I am totally new to diesels. It makes a lot of noises I'm not used to, especially the whining of the turbo. Also the previous owner put some sort of tip on the exhaust that makes it sound like a jet.
My question: is there any reason I need to walk away from this, or is it a solid engine? I'll have my mechanic look at it tomorrow, but any advise, wisdom, warnings will be appreciated.
BTW, I really like it, when you hit gas, that thing takes off!!
