Question about 2004 Ford F350

Right rear axle leaking gear oil

I have a 2003 Ford Crew Cab 6.0 Diesel SRW. I noticed yesterday that my truck was smoking. I thought it was the exhaust, so I adjusted the mirror while driving and noticed it was coming from my rear passenger wheel. I pulled over and checked it out and there was gear oil all over my wheel, brakes and right side of the truck. I took the wheel off when I got home, but could not really tell exactly where it was leaking from since there was so much fluid everywhere. Has anyone else had this problem? Is this as simple to fix as just changing out a seal somewhere, if so what seal? Thanks

If it is the seal on the bearing, its not easy it is very time consuming, but this can also be the veiw if you have a brake cyl leak which can be caused by the brakes being exessevely worn in the rear end. I would take it to a shop and have them check it out,

2003 f250 won't start


Is this a small amount of white smoke or a lot of white smoke? If it is a lot of white smoke it could be a head gasket problem.

1. Do you have coolant in oil or vice versa?
2. Pull spark plugs and inspect for plugs wet with coolant.
3. Do a compression test and check for a low cylinder.

If you have issues in any of these points you will need to replace the head gaskets.

High pressure oil pump leak.


the high pressure pump provides the pressure to your injectors so the diesel luel can be injected at high pressure. You should fix this immediately. Call your dealer and ask for some help from Ford on the repair cost ahead of the repair. See what they will do.

Diesel fumes in cab, '03 f250


If its raw fuel fumes check for fuel leaks on top of the motor. If its exhaust fumes you probably have an exhaust leak on the cross pipe at the rear of motor over the transmission. Take a telescoping mirror and flash light have a look. Might even slide under neath and take a peak as well. Make sure wheels are chocked with something first.
