Talkin to a guy with his truck for sale. 01 24v 4x4 124,xxx miles 5spd. He sent me some pics from the engine, hes gonna send some more tomorrow. what really caught my eye was the elbow on the intake. I saw another one it said the grid heater caught on fire, but this one isnt near as bad. Kinda just looks like its 11 years old lol

Yea other than the intake elbow it looks fine, is it still in the truck so you can hear it run, and check for codes?

the guy ended up not wanting a trade so I didnt get to look at it. I was already skiddish. It was on craigslist for $8900 and the guy said hes buys them from auctions and sells them for profit. Not sure why he wouldnt take a $16k+ truck for his lol but whatever probably a good thing for me

man if he's asking 8900 for a truck with an engine that looks like that i should ask 10,000 for mine .some parts of the engine in those pics look ok but that oil on the apps cover means he's been checkin the oil alot and that could only mean that it's loosin or burning oil .that valve cover needs to be redone for sure and the elbo where i think the grd heater is looks to have been really heated up. but don't take my words for it cause i am fairly new to the diesel truck world.

Like i said, he buys from an auction so he only had it for a really short period of time
