Re: 6.4 engine noise

If you can, when you see it you should try get a clip of the sound and post it. Hopefully it would be something minor and you could get it for a steel of a deal.

Re: 6.4 engine noise

At that price, it sounds like he knows the motor is bad.

Nobody sells shiat for half of what it's worth without a reason.

He may be "no mechanic" but he's probably not retarded either.
