    Re: 99 STS Project

    Joe - if you're interested in taking on a HG job, a 98 STS, I had a customer just call me looking for someone who can do the repair from Allentown, PA. He's about three hours away.

    I know you have a private shop for yourself but if you're interested, email me. Phone systems are down right now (I can call out but I cannot receive) - info@northstarperformance.com

    Re: 99 STS Project

    Joe knows what he's doing. He wouldn't take it out on a public road without plates / insurance

    You will love that STS Joe. These cars drive/ride like a dream.

    Re: 99 STS Project

    Hey Jake I have a friend that owns a landscape company. He has two 05 Ford F350 one is a dually with dump bed and the other is single wheel both have plows and 6.0 Powerstrokes. Now get this both failed headgaskets at 50,000 miles. Now I have herd rumors going around that the Ford Dealer charged $6000 each. Now this is rumors but if that is true, holy crap. Makes a Northstar sound like a dream car. I know the 6.0 powerstroke has had a headgasket problem but $6000 thats a lot of money to fork out on a 6yr old truck that should easaly go 200,000. I beileve they have a 5yr-100,000 mile warranty. Just a thought, Joe

    Joe,
    Remember that in some cases they have to remove the cab of the truck to work on the engine. A lot of hours.

    Re: 99 STS Project

    no i am pretty sure on F250 and up including the Excursion they have to remove the cab or body to pull the engine. That is still a lot of money and it is only 6yrs old the last time i checked a diesel in a pickup it was a $7500 option and that was before the PDF and DEF epa regs. I would like to see what it will cost when the salt gets to it. I dont know if they have to remove the cab to get the heads off. I do know the engine sits quite far under the cab on the fords. Its just amazing what stuff is custing to get fixed and people are junking a car with a $50,000 sticker price for a fix thats out there for $2000. Around here you cant touch a good car for $2000 after the cash for clunkers scam

    Re: 99 STS Project

    i was just doing some googling and this is what i found couldn't find the reason why though

    late 03 and up diesels are the only ones required to remove the cab and i goggled with F350 so im asuming they are just talking about Ford
