diesel in oil

Hi, i just bought an 03 f250 got it super cheap knowing some things needed fixing ie steering box, ball joints, exhaust leak somewhere, but i checked the oil dipstick and smelt diesel, i am waiting for my mechanic to free up some space to work on the other things but am worried about this, i also noticed when im driving if i have the pedel maybe halfway down cruising somewhere around 1500 RPMs if i push down a little i get no response and the rpms stay about the same and i hear a like a air sound but if i floor it or take my foot off and push down again its fine, i can floor it from a stop and and have no prob flying away, is that maybe my fuel pump?

I was watching the XDPpower challenge there was a truck that had the same problem with fuel in the oil and the crew from ATS in the video said it was from damaged fuel injectors. From reading on here injector can have problems from HPOP and a number of other problems. To many for me to list I'll leave that to the seasoned vet on here to give more detailed info. Hope that points you in a direction.

You could do yoir own work and save alot of money, heck if you got the truck cheap, use it to fix it. We can get you going here, and there are a ton of videos on youtube. Make sure you get a monitor on the truck, read all the stickies. Injectors that are loose, damaged, or cracked injector tps will dump fuel. Do you have excessive smoke? There is an updated, fpr sping that you can install for low fuel pressure. Best to get a guage on it and check it out, less than 45psi will kill injectors. Welcome.

Those banks tuners are really not idea for these truck, bad on transmissions too. Personally I would stay away from tuners if not studded. Jmo. You need a good monitor to check for codes. You should load test your batteries, and perform the ficm check procedure.

If you insist on getting a tuner, I understand that the new livewire ts 5015 is the way to go. There is a thread on here about them. Otherwise, the scanguage is good for the money, a little lacking on code reading. I have an edge cts, it's nice. You know what you can afford, anything is better than nothing.

That's just fishy to replace just one or two injectors if one is bad the commone cents wou
D tell you that the rest aren't to far behind them for going bad. And to just replace one might as well replace them all. I know I just had all 8done to my truck. Tuttle cost for injectors and labor was 3k and some change. But I know I won't have that problem again for a very long time if it comes up again.

I respectfully disagree with replacing all eight, in general. The injectors are complex components, so if you replace all eight, and one fails in a short amount of time, are you going to replace all eight again? I think not. Running the truck out of fuel, with low fuel pressure, oil changes way beyond recommended, without filters, or plain lack of maintenance, maybe. In general, no. I replaced one 2k miles ago, everything is fine. Jmho.
