HPOP question

So in this thread 95 no start thanks to y'alls help I was able to discover the HPOP had emptied and thus the truck wouldn't start.

So that being figured out here is my question. The truck had sat undriven for 1 1/2 - 2 months so will the oil drain out over this period of time or should it never empty itself?

With the discovery do I need to have the HPOP rebuilt (which if I researched correctly looks like you can't, i.e. need special tools), buy a new one (found one for approx 400.00), or just drive it more frequently and see what happens.

Thanks in advance,
Craig

I have one out of a 97. Not sure if it will work with the 95, anti-drainback, or something?

Yeah the early 95's have an anti drain back in them so they are different than later models.

Is yours an early 95 Craig?

Any obvious leaks anywhere Craig?

Yeah mine is a:
1995 2WD Automatic CC long bed.

It has 351,992 on the clock.

No mods other than open exhaust from turbo back and a Napa 6637 air filter.

No obvious oil leaks.

I ran it for a couple of hours last night and when I went out this morning it fired up like nothing ever happened. I keep saying I am going to get rid of it, but I seem to have some kind of unreasonable attachment to it that defies a logical thought process.

Anyways, thanks again for the input and suggestions.

Craig

So two days and still no problems starting. If it is the check valve am I safe to assume that at this point it is a small issue?

It is nice to be able to drive the truck again.

Sounds like problem solved to me, I would just keep tabs on the fluid level and enjoy driving it.

The boys love hearing the turbo whine again. "Daddy can we take the diesel again?" All weekend long.

HPOP

Im new to this forum and diesels. Is the HPOP a high pressure oil pump? If so, I have a '94 2wd CC with a similar problem. I drive mine everyday and i put about 52 miles roundtrip daily for 5 days. I started to have this problem about 3 weeks ago. What I did was have the injectors flushed at the local Ford dealership and replaced the fuel pump. The next day, same problem. Im thinking its the glow plugs. After reading the thread from TEXASRN, im thinking otherwise.
Where can i see if i have a check valve?
