Opinions on 95 F350 w 351 motor
I am looking for opinions on this particular truck. I recently acquired a 95 F350 XLT Four Door (Crew Cab??), automatic, that has 355,000 miles on it. Interior is in good shape, exterior good besides one dent behind passenger side cab on the bed. Guy swears his mom changed oil every 3000 miles in it, which I tend to believe for a gas engine to have that many miles on it. It has issues though. I see a ton of them running around where I live, but they are diesels, and want to know other than the plugs, wires, cap, and rotor I have put in it, is it worth my time to fix up? Heat doesn't work, temp guage flatlines hot when you turn the heat on, not sure about the AC since it's so cold out, but compressor turns on, shifts a bit hard, rear gas tank full of fuel but fuel pump doesn't work, gas guage doesn't work on front tank, broken driver's side door handle (what a pain, I have not the strength to push the button from outside), and needs a new master cylinder, and a major exhaust leak. It was running on 5 cylinders when I got it and pulled a 35 foot travel trailer behind it. It did it, but it drank up the fuel. Is this thing worth my time or should I get it running decent and sell it??? Let me know!
