moms went over 500...last forever if you treat it right... i have only drove them to about 250 before selling...Since this is my first diesel truck I have a couple o questions.
what is the life expectancy of the 5.9 engine mileage wise?
I have heard they can go roughly 300,000 before a rebuild would be in order.
also what does a rebuild cost on a diesel engine?
Higher compression ratioI am picking up an 04 today, sold my 98 couple of weeks ago. The 04 has 130k miles on it. Runs great, have to keep reminding myself thats just broke in lol. Tougher to convince the wife. I drove several trucks, one thing I noticed and dont know the significance of was an 05 114k and an 06 33kmiles had much more engine noise than the 04. Any ideas as to what would cause that?
