High pressure oil leak repair - what else to replace?

I have an '06 with about 153k on it. Never had any internal work done on the engine. It seems that I have a high pressure oil leak somewhere that is causing hard starts when the engine is warm.

Also, periodically when I am driving, the injector pressure will not get above 2k, even though the engine is under heavy load and the boost is over 20psi. Normally, I would expect over 3k.


Anyway, the injectors did check good with the engine warm, and I am planning on leaving the truck at my dealer so that they can check them cold. I will know more about them then.

I have been watching my EOT, and on smooth highway stretches it has been right around 15deg higher than the water. I do not have a programmer or chip, but do have a scangage II

I do have to let the truck warm up, even on warm mornings - 60deg, or else I get the sluggish shifting type issue. No excessive smoke either.

Enough rambling on...

When I get this truck worked on, I definitely want to fix it once, and not have to go back for a while. What should I do to it?

Budget is a concern, and the truck is not mine. It is my work truck, but it is my daily driver, so I want it reliable.


Thanks

Well, i got two quotes from my dealer.

"Minimum" repair is about 2k. That is a new HP oil pump and replacing the dummy plugs. $850 labor.

Option 2 is what they recommend based on our conversations. Replace the oil cooler, egr delete, new injectors and hp oil pump and replace the dummy plugs.

$6400 which includes $1500 labor.

I know I could beat those prices going to a non dealer, but there would be the question of warranty, should something go wrong down the road.

Comments?
