    New from Iowa

    Just joined...Just got me a 2008 f 150 lariat had to put a new motor in...heres why..

    Later part of September I went to look at this truck ran good drove good so I brought it for $9,250 was asking 10,000.. so I brought it..had it a day was gonna go get it serviced..got serviced ran like crap sounded like a big diesel took it back to garage 3 guys said cam phasers are shot, guy who drained oil said it came out like a glue substance.. The guy I got truck from brought it brand new in 2008 here we are in 2015 he hasn't changed oil once he just put additives in oil never changed it...so that's why I put new motor in...

    He must've changed it early on. Almost 100K on oil just seems impossible. But still the fact that it never really got done in such a long time is mind blowing. That guy is a ******* and it sucks you had to pay for his mistakes. But at least you got a brand new motor and a good warranty.
