truck leaks bad!!!

just bought a 95 powerstroke 5spd. that is going to get a cummins at the end of next summer, but for now i need to drive it. the truck has oil running out of the valley at idle. but not running down the road. i drove it for a full week and oonly lost a quart in about 150 miles, but i let idle for 15 min and lost a gallon of oil. its coming out of the valley somewhere but i cant track it down. theres also fuel in the valley that maybe contributing too because this thing drinks fuel like 6mpg drinks it. i love ford but the 7.3 is one of the worst engines ive ever dealt with . i bleed cummins red so ive been driving dodge junk and finally up graded to a better truck with alot worse engine. i just need to get this thing drivable with out haveing to refill the oil to let it warm up. any hints where to start?

i know it says im a newbie but i have 3500 posts on cumminsforum so im not new to the forums just lurking over here trying to fix this thing the truck is way too clean to get rid of.

heres some pics

My guess is going to be the HPOP gasket, but it could also be the pedestal or HPOP lines. For the fuel leak, you'll have the pump out when you do the HPOP so replace all the soft lines as they have probably rotted with age and replace the orings in the water separator.

update found the oil leak it started spraying out of the rod on the pedistool for the ebv. I found a short block for it cause the bottom end is tired too.

Glad you found it. You can get a rebuild kit IIRC it's around $70 or you can delete it.

My favorite OBS color, damn sexy. If you don't mind me asking how many miles are on it? Just was wondering because I don't know the maintenance history of mine and would like a rough approximation of when I should be facing this issue.

198000 of what im starting assume ar ethe hardest miles a truck can see. i changed the oil in it yesterday this is what came out, it looks better in the pic than it did in real life. i work on macks, freights and pete garbage trucks all day and i have never seen oil this bad.




i love this truck its my first ford and its by far the second best truck ive owned, (im partial to my 03 cummins i built that i had to sell cause i got laid off) i just wish it had a better engine than it does. everything else works great

I just had the same problem with my 97 PS, replaced the o-rings under the pedestal, still leaked and traced it to the solenoid for the EBPV. I'm new to the PS and u mentioned a delete for it, meaning the EBPV?
