Lucky I did not buy that Super Duty

    Get this. I go up to take the truck for a test drive and I get a mile from the dealer and the thing starts knocking, sounded like a diesel before I made it back. I walk in and the salesman says. "Why are you back so soon". I say " I thought that thing was a gas engine, because either that thing is a diesel or it is about to throw a rod" His face turned white as a ghost. Sure enough they pulled it into the shop and before they shut it off it let loose. Dodged a bullet on that one.

    Posted this in my original thread too, thought some may get a kick out of it.

    They forget to put the oil in again at the factory

    It was used, an 05 at 77k, but looked clean as brand new not a spot of rust even on the fuel and brake lines underneath. I guess that is why it was traded in.

    Good thing you caught it in time. Don't worry there's lots of trucks out there to buy.

    Go back and offer them less $$ after they put a fresh crate engine in it.
