1996 turbo deisel fuel and oil leak.

I have 1996 f-250 turbo diesel pick up that always has a small spot of oil/fuel on the ground on the passenger's side of the motor. after further inspection i found fuel in the valley of the motor, i think that is a bad fuel pump problem. But i still cant find where the oil is coming from too.

The fuel pump is located under the turbo on that truck. It is most likley washing sediment/old fluids out of the vally of toyr engine. It is also driven by a push rod that ths cam drives, so the lower pump o-ring may be leaking too. You can change the fuel pump without pulling the turbo. Good Luck

Hi I have a Nissan Navara turbo deisel 2002 model it drives for approx 50 minutes country driving then dies, I wait for 1--2 minutes and it starts up and drives off as if nothing happened only to do i


2002 is common rail with all fancy electrics and computers and stuff like that ,now this makes it very difficult for this old fleet fitter who used to repair diesels with nothing more complicated than a vacumn controlled speed govenor ,where we used to re-calibrate the injector pump on the vehicle .I think this fault is either something simple like a plastic bag in the fuel tank that gets caught up in the pick up pipe ,failing which its a complicated electronic issue of which i confess to knowing nothing about

7.3 deisel, have an oil somewhere on tpo of motor around under the turbo area. Thought it was leaking around fuel filter and fixed it but, still have a leak? I can see oil on the manifold but, hard to get...


It sound like the valve cover gasket. relativly easy to replace. To be sure I would take the rig to a car wash that has a pressure washer with hot water and spray the motor really well. Then after it is clean you should be able to spot the leak and where it is coming from. Keep me informed and please give me a thumbs up for tryng. Good Luck, Raz

Diesel 1989 F-250 set too long and will roll over


You may have to bleed the fuel system. There may be a very small air leak in the fuel supply line and after a long time idle, the fuel seeps bac into the tank, leaving an air lock in the pipe. When you go to start, this air makes its way into your injection pump & needs to be bled out before the engine will start. Begin from your fuel filter bleed valve, next the injection pump using the primer pump to transfer the fuel. Next loosen off the injector pipes and crank the engine over until fuel sprays form all the joints. Tighten injector pipes and start. It may run a bit rough for to begin with, but will soon even out. If it doesn't start, repeat bleeding of injectors.

Diesel 6.0 running very bad and getting too hot


What you have described is a classic turbo air leak. Check the clamps & air lines from the turbo to the intake. If you do not find an air leak (you should be able to hear the air escaping) it will be a turbo problem. Unlike gasoline engines too much fuel in proportion to the air will cause the vehicle to run hot and also to smoke.

I put another engine in my 1988 ford 250 deisel and smokes a lot, I've changed The injection pump and reset the timing, Plenty of fuel and runs great but smokes unbelievably, What could I do to get it to...


Before you do the next oil change,get a can of motor flush.
This is the inexpensive method the free up the rings and restore some of the compression.
Use Shell 15W40 oil ==
Do you know the history of your replacement engine?
When was the last timing belt change?
A loose timing chain and guide can cause injector timing problem.
==== Start monitoring the coolant level for protential head gasket leak. ====
To save time,I would do a high rpm (below REDLINE) highway ran to blow off all remaining diesel SOOT.
Let the shop to do a compression test. DO NOT DO THIS YOURSELF.
The max psi is 1850 PSI
=== Stay away from biodiesel blend fuel until you figure out what's the cause of the problem.
Use Diesel Cleen silver bottle and see is there any improvement. ===
Add the recommend dose of SEAFOAM into the crankcase to soften the valve stem seal.
Leaky valve stem seal can introduce oil drop into the cyclinders over-night. =====
Mointor any oil lose from valve cover.

Is the smoke only from tail pipe?


Please post answers and I will follow up on it.
