1995 7.3 5spd CC Oil Leak. Help!!!

I have two oil leaks. One off the oil filter, and the other off the Starter. I have just rebuilt the oil cooler hoping that would cure the leak on that side. I did put a new filter on it. It was leaking like this before I attempted to fix it. It a good sized leak because it leaves 3" spots on the asphalt in about 2 minutes. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Check all the High Pressure Oil Rail End Plugs. They are located on each end of each head (so 4 per motor) and are about 2" in diameter with a 1/2" square-drive recess. They like to leak. Cheers!

So it would be my back ones? I thought those were fuel lines back there. Hows the best way to look at them? Could they cause the truck to not run that great?

Thanks. I have learned more about 7.3s in the last month than in a year of owning one. There is so much that should be maintained that no body talks about. The EBPS being the biggest one. I thought that sensor was a oil pressure sensor till I was advised to clean it out. Never had fallowed the line down.

Rear ones you can see with a mirror (actually just a good flashlight from under the truck. Front's might be more difficult (I can't remember but you mat need to unbolt the accessories on the front). Cheers!

Located them. The back pass is bad. Is it just a o-ring? Still doesn't explain the drivers side coming down on top of the oil filter, but the last time i moved it it looked liked it had quit. Do gaskets some times take time to set up? Although the oil pan gasket looked like it could be replaced too.

The plug has an integrated o-ring:

Oil Rail End Plugs (large plugs at each end of heads; incl. O-rings, use LOCTITE #11747 to seal threads)
(Ford) Same number as International
(International) 1827535C94

The oil pan uses the special Wacker RTV to seal it and the engine has to come out to reseal it. Cheers!

If you have oil coming down the driver's side that is collecting on the filter I would check your CCV. It's sealed to the valve cover with a couple big fat o-rings that tend to swell then push out and leak oil all over. Mine has been doing it for a while. I have a kit from Ford just haven't gotten around to it yet. Kit's cheap...don't remember how much exactly though.



And hello there Patrick!
