August 4, 2005Just curious to see what kind of miles the 7.3 and 6.0 powerstroke guys are getting out of their engines? Has it been reliable for 100,000 miles? 200,000? It seems to the 6.0 is having a lot of problems...well at least from these boards. The people I know with the 6.0 have good rigs. So how has it been for you? Many issues? Any ongoing issues? Has your 6.0 been as good to you as the 7.3 was to many? Or did the 7.3 give you problems too?

August 4, 2005I have the wonderfull 7.3L powerstroke. she's an early 1999 crewcab dually 4x4,6spd. Its got 190,000 miles. and what a great life she's had. I havent had to even changed the cps yet now thats awsome. I installed superchips 3staged, banks monster exhaust..power elbow..down pipe, two guages, AFE staged 2 intake, Shifty waste gate box. I run AMSOIL through and im that is helping also. I think i will just keep the ol'7.3 untill the 6.0L is proven as reliable as the 7.3L. For now i'll just keep putting the miles on her till something changes.
August 4, 2005My 01 7.3 has been great 203,500 before I spent one penny except maint. 209,500 now. My 05 6.0 has also been great 18,102 miles without any problems!!
August 4, 2005My '99 F250 PSD 6spd has 167K on her..She parked Right now due to Clutch Issues. My dad has a '99 F350 PSD Auto with 204K and a '96 F250 PSD 5 spd with 212K, and my brother has a '93 F350 7.3l IDI Turbo Diesel with 214K
I'd say the 7.3l has proven to surpass 200k.
August 4, 2005157thousand and some change on mine........... got a couple sensors to replace on it, other than that not a problem, don't know how long the tranny will hold up, considering upgrading to a 2005 cummins thou.......but we'll see it might be to aquward not being in a ford.
August 4, 2005Early '99 with 103,500. Only problem I've had was the tranny going out, but who HASN'T had that problem
August 5, 2005140k here! No problems yet, 'cept for normal wear and maintenance.
August 6, 2005Well I have 110,000 on mine and I put a BTS tranny in her and a bunch of improvements but no major problems!!! I love it!! Still runs smoothe and gets fairly good mpg's considering its on 49's!!! It has had a tough life with never having a tire smaller than a 36 on her. We also have an '84 6.9L that was nopt touched untill it het 400,000 miles. Now it has 575K and runs great!!!
August 6, 2005I have a 96 psd with 110,000 miles on it, my grandpa has an 01 psd with 150,000 miles on it and I use to have an old 85 6.9 diesel in it with well over 300,000 miles on it. And yes the ford diesel has proved itself to be very reliable.
August 6, 2005I got 159,500 on my '96. Its had a new tranny, water pump, and ball joints. But all of that is expected.
