05 in trouble please help

my 05 has a high pressure oil leak ford wants $1900 to fix. I dont have that kind of money right know. So i figured i would venture into taking it apart to find out this is hard to fix. If anybody has pictures that would help me in getting the oil rail apart that would be awesome. If there is someone in the Hoffman Estates Illinois area that has done this before i will pay for someones help.


Thanks CHRISTOPHER

The high pressure oil system isn't rocket science, it's just a matter of knowing where everything is. Being an 05, I bet its the STC fitting. Did the dealer give you any more info in the diagnosis?

For the 05-06 model years, the most common failure of the High Pressure Oil system (HPO) is the STC (snap to connect) fitting. That fitting connects the HPOP (high pressure oil pump) to the rest of the HPO system.
It is located under the HPOP cover. The turbo has to come out, the IPR (Injection Pressure Regulator) valve must be removed from the HPOP, then the HPOP cover comes off. The Fitting will be towards the back of the area just opened.
You have to remove the whole HPOP and get the updated fitting. It runs around 60 bucks and is NOT an STC style fitting.
Next up would be dummy plugs on the ends of the rails and the standpipes. I have not had the pleasure of tackling these, so I will let someone that has join in.

I sent him a PM detailing the components in the system, as well as what to replace.

If you need anything else, send me a PM!

Well Hell, if your gonna detail how to replace the standpipes and dummy plugs, lets see it here.
If I am not mistaken the dummy plugs sound like a breeze, just unscrew the old plug, lube the o-ring on the new and screw it in and torque to spec. Same deal with the standpipes? Are they under some type of plug in the rail?
Like I said, I know what they are, and where they are, just not the procedure for replacement.

This thread details it fairly well.

Injector replacement - with pictures - Diesel Forum - TheDieselStop.com

It really is fairly simple-If you can do the dummy plugs, you can do the standpipes.
