Hi Fellows -
I have a F250 with a 5.4 & automatic.
I like the pickup except for NO low end torque starting off with a loaded trailer. That has stranded me again this weekend.
I'm not sure if there is some "kick-down" that is not working that won't let me really rev the engine from a deadstop in low gear - or whether it is just fairly gutless starting off. It pulls fine once I'm rolling.
I'm looking at maybe buying a 2001 or 2002 F350 with a 7.3 diesel & about 165,000 miles. Plus, it has a manual trannie.
Anything I should look for in particular on that setup?? Any comments pros or cons on the F350 engine or trannie??
Thanks for any advice (about either pickup!), Howard
