My truck has 59K on it.

It appears that a failure of a thermocouple for EGT will cause the following message "Stop Safely Now".

I did so, shut off the engine and would not crank over after this. I let it cool, reloaded the default program, which reset the computer and it restarted. I have it home now. It appears this is a not so uncommon issue. I believe it would have restarted if I had unhooked batteries and reset without reloading, but it was pouring rain.

I grew up as a Ford fan. I've rebuilt 2 engines, a Ford 289 and an International c123. I ran that 289 hard. Ford 7.3 was a tank. After working in a shop I switched to GM. GM's biggest problem is they undergear their trucks. They have excellent gas motors. The 5.3 might not be the most powerful, but I'd take that or a 6.0 gm over anything else.

That being said the only new diesel I would ever consider is a Mercedes 3.0 in a Sprinter platform.

don't get one of those new 6.7 from dodge either , emission control are junking diesels . you pay 7k extra for a engine that won't last as long a a gas engine . find the biggest gas engine you can get in a truck and go with it .

New diesels will far out last a gas. You will have issues with the emissions stuff tho. It would be hugely beneficial if you got the delete kit and got rid of that crap.

I thought I read where the Feds outlawed the delete kits and started fining anyone making or selling them so after the shelves were empty they were gone. It is a shame because without all that crap todays diesel engines are incredible powerplants.

Edge products ended up filing bankruptcy recently. The one company closed their doors rather than pay the fines. I know some guys who have done the deletes claim they will spend the money for the correct timing cover and gear train and put a P-pump in it before they will put the emissions equipment back in.

OK, let me get this straight. He's supposed to get rid of a decent truck with a questionable engine for a good engine in crappy shipping container? Somehow I'd rather walk than drive a FIAT.

This is an issue with a thermocouple in the exhaust, I am pretty sure the engine is not going to blow up.

There ya' go!!! Until recently I drove vehicles for a car dealer... drove almost everything you can think of over the last 10 years. I'd take a Ford over the other two any day! Also saw what buyers had to deal with for problems after owning them... still take a Ford! BTW, this was not a Ford dealer.
