82K....none at all. Normal oil, filter, brake and fluid changes, replaced front rotors with PowerSlots and changed calipers when I did (just because). Not even a CPS change yet.

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

62k miles, and mpg is just under 16.

Repairs include the following that were done under waranty.

* Throwout bearing
* O ring on HP line
* Injector drive module & PCM (was replaced when in the shop for the HP o-ring)
* CPS
* Rattle at drivers side defrost vent

Non warranty repairs include:

* Vehicle Security Module replaced.
* Passenger side axle seal on front diff...this one kind of made me mad...
* POS LSD replaced with an Eaton Posi...I am not sure I would consider this a "problem" as most people seem to have a poor experience with the factory LSD, and I was looking for an excuse to buy something anyway...as long as I was having the front axle worked on (see above issue).
* A couple months back, I noticed that my "clutch pedal position switch" was bad, and replaced it myself.

Other than that, I have had no problems. Even now, the truck seems "tight", and I do not have any squeaks and rattles. Overall, I am very pleased with this vehicle!!

That reminds me. Don't wait until you have over 100,000 on your odometer before you change your shocks. When your truck never gives you problems and the shocks wear out gradually over time you tend to overlook them. After I changed my shocks the first time I spent the next three weeks kicking myself for not doing it sooner.

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

80K

Passenger side seat belt buckle (warranty recall),
ball joints,
front rotors,
all brake pads,
caliper pins greased,
steering drag link (ball stud went bad),
sway bar link (passenger side),
Steeltexes (at 60K,with Revos... should have gotten 10K more, ball joints took the fronts out),
assorted bulbs,
plus the usual oil/filters/etc..

I have Bilsteins in the shipping box (for a year!) but not enough time to install them. The steering stabilizer is toast too from the extent of steering wheel movement going through pot holes (lots and lots of potholes, which is what wore out some of the parts above).

With just over 100K miles... Oil down the back of the motor, ball joints,water pump,cps,steering stabilizer twice,shocks, tires,rusty oil pan (POR 15 Fix),clutch,squeaky front springs and batteries. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/cry.gif I am also about to tear into the transmission that may have been damaged during the clutch replacement project. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/mad.gif
This is similar for too many PSD owners,and way more than any other Ford I have ever owned, including a Bronco and F250 I really rode hard and put away wet!
And yet, I still smile ! /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif
Mileage is approx. 25 mpg empty on highway and in the mid to high teens pulling the 5'r on the flat....

I've got 82K on mine and it's been in the shop once at around 19K for the turbo pedestal o-ring leak. I just did brake pads and rotors about 2K ago. Other than that, no repairs, just normal maintenece...

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

Just turned 54K on my 2002 7.3 CC SWB. Low mileage due to my retirement from a back injury. Truck just sits in the driveway for the last three years.

Repairs:

TSB/Recall:
1. 20K - Adjustable pedal assy replaced by Ford.

Under Warranty:
1. 24K - 6 CD Changer - eject stopped working
2. 24K - Front Driver & Passenger lower window seals - reseated
3. 24K - Trip Computer - little flip down doors broke
4. 32K - Left Rear Tailight assembly - short due to water penetration, seal torn.
5. 33K - Front axle shaft - needed to be removed and greased. Ford should have put a zerc on it!

No Warranty:
1. 42K - SteelTex tires replaced with BFG's - Ford Tech overpressurized right rear SteelTex, caused a blister in the sidewall. SteelTex's would have gone at least another 15K. Drew Ford pro-rated the tires for wear, and then tossed in one free tire cause of their mistake, and did all mounting/balancing for free. Oh, the price per tire was THEIR cost and they paid the taxes too!
2. 42K - E-Brake pedal release rubber bumper stop that mates to the Brake light switch. Took me a while to figure it out, but my Ford Tech kept helping til I got it. Thanks Drew Ford!

Needs Repair/Replacement:

1. Shocks
2. Steering Stablizer
3. Brake pads - rotors are still good to go.

Maintenance done:

fluids - oil every 3K, others as required by Ford (Tranny, Diff's, Coolant)

This truck has been awesome! Of course it has never been beaten and put away wet, and has only towed a handful of times. Biggest tow yet - Bobcat with 4 ton dump trailer. Oh yeah, and a broken down Chevy Duramax with trailer in tow!
