e: Whats your mileage on your 7.3 ? and with what repairs???

2001 7.3 PSD, 250,000 4x4 Crew Cab, Short Bed

Got the truck right at 200,000. I'm convinced that the person who owned her before never did any preventative maintenance. Since then in order:

Door Lock Actuators all replaced.
All glow plugs replaced.
Transmission rebuild
High Pressure Oil Pump replaced.
Rear Drive Shaft rebuild due to failing U-Joints (the SOB never greased them. I highly advise getting under your girl and making sure she's all lubed up from time to time.)
Engine Rear Main Seal replaced.
Transmission front main seal replaced.
Transmission Oil Pan and Seal replaced.
Turbocharger Hoses replaced.

Repairs planned for:
Replace all u-joints on front drive shaft, both front wheel shafts.
Replace brake rotors with higher quality rotors
Replace muffler and exhaust pipe.

I thoroughly plan on watching the odometer click over to 1,000,000.

2006, ~51,000 miles - 2nd cracked flexplate (replaced again under warranty, torque converter determined to be at fault, torque converter replaced under warranty - no further problems)
2007, HPOP O-rings
2009, new batteries installed
2013, ~100,000 miles - front axle ball joints
2014, ~105,000 miles - new starter
2015, ~110,000 miles - new batteries installed, new brakes, replaced CPS after random stalling event
2015, ~113,000 miles - injector cups leaking, installed new cups & injector O-rings

Welcome to TheDieselStop , you have posted in the wrong place but no matter , maybe one of the moderators will move it for you.
Don't be scared about buying a PSD 7.3 , there's plenty of information on here for you to that will get you out of trouble if ever needed.
Good luck with the purchase.

NBT Purchased this 03 in 2013....with 107,000 on the ODO. Since then I replaced all fluids, carrier bearing, shocks, went to all SS brake lines after the drivers side mainline broke at the fitting. Currently looking for a permanent fix for the fractured stabilizer bar bracket, which broke after being welded.
Have 124K on the ODO, and other than the aforementioned...just routine maintenance....and a few upgrades.

WOW! What a thread.

2003 E-350 7.3 Aprox. 75,000 miles)

Ball Joints
Wheel Bearings & grease seals
Brake Rotors (Front & Rear)
Brake Calipers (Front & Rear)
Complete brake fluid flush out
Tires (Third set!)

Seems pretty good for an almost 13 year old vehicle.

Repairs thus far 2002 F250

185 K on the clock. I have replaced downpipes, injector cups, hoses, steering gear, degas bottle, turbo pedestal gaskets, hpop oil pipes, hpop o rings, exhaust turbo back, glow plug relay, CAC hoses, CPS, ball joints, tie rod ends, alternator, starter, u joints. I think that's it. Oh and sway bar bushings and end links.

Hope this helps. They're good solid trucks.
