I am thinking about purchasing a 2004 F-350 with 6.0 Diesel , everything I read is that the engines are junk . I know people that have not had problems and others that will never buy a Ford again . Is the motor as bad as I hear ?

You either get a bad one or a good one. I wouldn't buy one without getting a Oasis report on the truck from Ford. If your going to buy a 6.0 I would get atleast an 05 or newer.

Welcome to DF from Colorado.

I have an 04 with 116,000+ on it and haven't had any "major" issues with it. I have only owned it for about 3yrs now and I have only had to address the EGR valve and FICM. The OASIS report on mine came back with just an EGR valve cleaning and what not. I am pretty damn confident that I have a good one. 6.0's can be an amazing motor, unfortunately a lot crapped out and left a bad taste in most peoples mouth.

I love my 6.0 and won't get rid off it!
