Hello everyone. just signed up couple days ago. Been looking for cheap diesel truck to make my daily driver. Stumbled across a 2015 ecodiesel for $4600. Engine is allegedly blown(turns over very slowly). Has 154k on the clock. Thinking about buying, pulling engine, and modifying for reliability.

Nah replace with a crate 3.0L VM. Is the rest of truck in good condition? $4600 seems low even for a truck with blown engine.

Just got hold of the owner. Says parts only. Rest of truck actually looks cherry. Guessing no title or something like that. Oh well. Have a friend that works at a dealership about 20 miles from me. Said they get one every couple months. Till something pops up, I'll just keep researching weak likes and permanent fixes. The turtle I got for diesel now it just too crusty and outdated
