well i found my leak and its the hard lines ontop the inake that go to the injectors. i found 2 of them leaking.
so i tried to tighten and they wont stop. so i purchased all new lines.. BUT this isnt te purpose of this post.
the purpose is that when i switch to my front fuel tank the motor starts to idle wierd and the diesel sounds goes away also when you hit the gas pedal it kinda chugs up to the rpms..
also it blows white/bueish smoke out of the exhaust like ALOT OF IT.. my uncle works for greyhound and he said to just let it run since its like there is water/ something in the fuel... im kinda scared since in a gas motor white/blue smoke is oil burning which means its not around the pistons rings and not lubing the motor..
i dont want the thing to blow up so i haven ran it on the front tank...
any ideas guys????
" the noob "
the smoke issue sounds like unburned fuel no big worry maybe you have inop glow plugs? mine havn't worked since I bought my truck in 1999, but I live in a warm climate so I can deal with it.
if your havine issues switching to front tank I had same issues, I solved them junking the ford system and installed my own. I found the the factory plastic fuel pickup in both tanks on my truck were broken and floating around inside my tanks, I ditched all that junk, look in my pics to see how I solved the problem
