What powerstroke to avoid?
Stay away from the 6.0’s(commonly known as 6-leakers) and the 6.4’s(commonly known as sootbags). I believe that the 2002/2003 7.3 powerstroke is one of the best diesels ever made, even with the tranny situation. After that, the 1997 PS was also a good one for longivity and reasonable power.
