I've read a bit about the VT 365 engine too....scared me for a while but I can't find a better bus for a better price in my province......so I'm thinking maybe I should buy it and pay whatever it costs to update the motor ?.....I'm guessing oil cooler and filter check to start.....update the things that cause most problems. If it's running clean right now ( 2008 under 140,000 miles ) then chances might be it wasn't drastically overheated at any point to cook the internals ?......The one I'm looking at has a 5 speed as well...….might that have helped to make sure it wasn't stressed ?

on your VT-365.. see if someone can read your computer and get you a printout.. your ECM stores the previous 3 oil pressure and temperature events.. and at what hours / miles they occured.. the computer stores the current miles / hours..



this data is almost impossible to delete out of the computer. so it is a good guide to see if its ever been run hor or out of oil.. or high oil temp..



if the events are a long number of miles / hours ago or dont exist then id be more inclined to give it a clean bill of health..



if you can do the EGR cooler and oil cooler yourself you can save a lot of $$ over paying a shop to do it..
