I’m taking the Earthfucker back.
An emailed comment warned “Watch out for that 6.0 diesel. Ask me how I know.”
Took it to a diesel specialist for a checkout and a baseline maintenance. They had it overnight, and when they fired it up this morning to pull it into a bay to begin work, it threw codes for FOUR bad injectors and a bad glow plug.
Sorry, but I’m not dropping $1,600 in repairs on a freshly purchased vehicle. The dealer has acknowledged they’ll take it back and refund my money.
Dammit, dammit, dammit. Guess I’ll keep looking for a good older truck with a 7.3L.
