2003 6.0 recalls??

I met a man in my neighborhood that I have lived by for the last 3 years, but never talked to before. He is a ery nice man with a 2003 Super Duty 4 door crew cab 2 wheel drive with a 6.0. He said he bought it used in 2004 with 15.000 miles. It now has 58,000 miles. He said the only trouble he ever had with it was a turbo charger was replaced on it awhile back under extended warranty. He also said he has never taken it in for any recalls or anything. Were there any recalls on the 03 6.0 that he needs to have address before the entended warranty runs out? I thought I remember hearing about a oil leak issue where the dealer uses a different fitting on the oil lines with a support bracket or something like that on the early 6.0. He is 78 years old, a very nice man, and I am trying to make sure he doesn't let his warranty run out and not get his recalls done.

The only recall I know of was for a computer flash and if he is happy with the truck the way it is leave it be.The 05/6 has a fitting on the high pressure oil pump that is a known problem but there is no recall.Good on ya looking out for the old fella!

If he has an 03 that has never been flashed, he should keep it as far away from a dealer as possible. My 03 lost 2 to 3 mpg after it was reflashed.
