Howdy,


Most likely your issue is going to be the O-rings in the fuel/water separator drain valve located under the "powerstroke" cover on top of the engine. Look for a yellow handle on the pass. side on the back side of the fuel bowl. Open it and close it a couple of times, it may stop leaking, it may not. You can get the entire drain valve replaced for a chunk of change, or if it you're able you can just replace the o-rings themselves for just a few $. Your ford dealer should have both the valve and the o-rings.

Sounds like a fuel line. trace the fuel line from under the truck on the driversside should go up the back of the motor. the fuel line is probably spraying over to the passenger side of the motor. yes this could cause a power loss.

Add about 2.5-quarts of new engine oil to the engine.
Remove the passenger-side wheel, and support the car on jack-stands.
Start the engine and look for oil leak.
Chances are leaks are coming from failed oil-pan gasket or the drain-plug.
The head-cover gasket could be failing as well..

well the question is where did the coolant go. if it didnt leak out it must have went out the pipe. As you stated, white smoke, white smoke is coolant. You definately need to get this to the shop. You cannot drive it this way or further damage will occur.

Glow plugs has life span of 3-4 years.

Less if your glow plugs relay is on its way out.

Check the batteries terminal for corrosion.

Check the cable and ground connections

Do a load test on the batteries.

Google for some tip on glow plug relay bypass using a starter relay.

1996 turbo deisel fuel and oil leak.


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
