2001 Ford F250 -7.3L Powerstroke - any good?
Have my eye on a 2001 F250 extended cab longbox. Fully loaded with automatic. Looks like it never pulled anything - no 5th wheel hitch or anything, just a small receiver hitch. Truck has 112,000 miles (180,000 km). It looks mint - inside and out. NOt a scratch on it.
Is there anything in particular to watch out for in regards to mechanical issues with this particular model year?
I realize that by now, the good ole' 7.3 powerstroke diesel is pretty much bullet proof, but what about the automatic trannies? The older automatics had so many updates it was hard to keep track.
Anything to be cautious of?? Any help is greatly appreciated...
2000 and 2001 Ford F250 Extended Cab, Shortbox Superduties - 7.3L diesel Automatics. Both with less than 87,000 miles.
