Re: 6.0 Engine build date
[ QUOTE ]
My door jamb tag says 02/04 for the "Truck Build Date?" How do you find the specific day ? Also, the tag on the FICM says 03 DEC 2003 and is peeling off (very hard to read). How do I determine WHERE the truck and engine were built/assembled ??
Thanks in advance,

Roger, You get the exact build date of the truck off an oasis report. On the jamb of the drivers door it'll get you close by showing month/year.
In my case the jamb sticker shows 02/05. On my FICM sticker it also specifies Indianapolis plant.
I have to agree with the earlier poster who's date code reads mm/dd/yy on the FICM sticker. Check your door jamb sticker and better yet check your oasis report. The 2 dates should be very close with the engine being built first.
About the dreaded oil leak, I too have noticed a small amount of oil on the b/h. Initially noticed with 3600 on the odometer, at almost 11K now and still no oil drop stains in the driveway. I'm not going to bother the dealer with it unless it gets way worse.
