I bought a 7.3L! '1996 F250 with 211k miles
I had the same truck. Took it to 265k and it rotted away. Engine ran well though. I would also recommend a complete fluid flush and
Replacement. I would install a coolant filter as well. You will also eventually want to replace the front axle with a Dana 60. If you are experiencing cold weather your throttle hesitation could be the EBPV engaging. I ended up using mine as a engine break. It worked ok, but not great.
You could also have a 3.55 axle.
1996 F250 4x4 ext. cab, long bed 5 spd. 3.55ls, Tymar Intake, Tymar 4" downpipe and 4" exhaust. AIC, B&W turnoverball, EBPV brake, tranny temp gauge, boost gauge, and egt gauge. 2.5" axle drop bracket, F350 springs up front, and F350 rear axle blocks. 260k miles. RETIRED.
NEW (to me) 2005 F350 FX4 Crewcab shortbed, SRW, Lariat, auto, V10. 5600 lbs front end.
