Need HPOP Help

Ok i have a 2007 f250 with 165,000 miles. Truck cranks up fine when cold but after driving for 15 min if you cut it off it wont restart, just cranks. Afrter you let it cool off completely it turns right over. So i figure it have a bad stc fitting or dummy plugs maybe both. So i have removed the trubo all 8 bolts from the hpop cover and the 2 from the heat shield. I cant get the hpop cover off i have tried prying it up with a small bar and one corner will slightly raise but cover wont come off. Any help would be appreciated.

Use the opening for the Turbo Drain Tube for leverage. Up you can use a deep socket that will fit in the hole with an extension to get leverage. Find a socket close to the dimension of the hole so that you don't mar the mating surface for your drain tube. Pull up and it should break loose. You may need to take your heat shield off to get the cover out.

Good luck

Don't forget to slice thru the silcon where it meets the rear cover or you'll have an oil leak back there...
