My first Diesel

I am in the process of buying my first diesel truck. I found a clean 2003 f350 (67000 miles) with the 6.0 powerstroke. I did the carfx report and everything looks fine. I have heard alot of negativity from people abut the 6.0's. Is there still a problem with these engines. What should I look for prior to purchasing a diesel. I know my way around a gas engine pretty good, but no thing about diesels. ANy help would be appreciated.

2003 Ford 6.0

Our 6.0L Power Stroke diesel engine ran awesome on our trip to Missoula,MT ,I'm new to the diesel engine as far as for a personnel vehicle, we purchased the truck and had a check engine light on our test drive , cost me 700 to have Rancho Ford :thdown: in Temecula diagnose and replace the EGR valve the part cost 225 online so better to buy it online ,they charged me 399 for the EGR, so dont ever go to Rancho Ford :thdown: in Temecula,Ca shop around we where leaving for vacation so they had me by the balls,.. The truck ran awesome though so much power to spare , we are very happy with or truck so far it had 118,000 when we bought it so hopefully all the 6.0 woes where already taken care of so far, So Good,.... good luck :thumbsup:
