How hard was that and how long did it take?
What was the hardest part?

The hardest part is getting the bolts out and in on the rear of the motor. And there is no guarantee you doing have compromised gaskets.

I don't think spell check would catch anything as spelling appears ok. Is there a "makes sense" check?

I've had mine for almost 5.5 years now with over 85k miles and the only problem that my truck gave me (a blown turbo) was my own fault (cheap tranny tuning). This truck has been stellar and has been 10x better than my 97 7.3L PSD! I'm glad I bought it and I'm always looking for a reason to trade it in on a 2011, but I just don't have any reason to! Great truck!

It's such a great vehicle that my wife now wants me to get her a 2005 Excursion with the 6L diesel. The only problem is that I've put so much into this truck that I can't part with it....and I can't justify 2 diesels.

oh I don't care about spelling most times spell check gets me ..
but the accidental word and the context were funny ...

I am just saying what compromised the gasket was suspicious ?

" do** have compromised gaskets. "
