Re: 2005 Ford #350 6.0 Diesel SMB
Stephanie: I'm by no means an expert but here are a few points about the diesels...
The 6.0L replaced the 7.3L diesel so it's in later model Ford vans. Someone else can tell you the model year that they changed......I think early 2000's???
The 7.3 is/was regarded as a great motor; the 6.0 is known to have a few issues possibly related to the EGR valve, maybe turbo, oil/water cooler (experts chime in here) and probably a few other things.........the later 6.0's have most of the issues resolved from the factory and the odds are high that an early version has had some updates due to failures.
A few reasons that people buy the diesel motor is longevity, fuel economy, and loads of torque to pull big trailers.
