Guys,


I'm back in the world of "dieseldom" after an awful fight with big blue, which I won, and now I need to get up to speed on the D-Max. I've already done a good bit of reading on this engine, but I'm open for any suggestions you have regarding the common flaws. Thanks for the suggestions in advance. Doug

How bout piss poor fuel filtration? That will cost you 6 thousand dollars minimum.
Its too early in the AM to type the remaining 25 other things.At least ford will buy the bad trucks back, gm wont.
Heres a small list of the problems/flaws. I guess Im one of the flawed people so heres some proof.

MPDLT - Don't believe everything on that list....not every truck suffers from things on that list...for example I don't even have the Snowplow roof beacon light LOL ha ha ha


Nice to know there is a fix if I did have that option LOL



If you get an '04 with the LLY engine some of the items relating to the LB7 engine go away....so far no one ahs reported any problem with the new '04 with the LLY. On the other hand, it's only been available since January '04, but the silence is deafening LOL

With the exception of the stinking High Beam indicator, nothing on that list has thus far afflicted my truck.

Thanks guys,


Problemchild, I appreciate the TSB list even though I may never need the whole thing! I hope all those don't apply to your truck. If they do can you say "lemon law"!


Bronco, Yes, silent buy backs. Ford's problems are/were so bad they buy the strokes back in quite large numbers. I beat them at arbitration and they bought me out. Nice deal actually, paid off the truck and gave me more than twice my down payment. But the headaches were terrible and really not worth what I got.
