Noob question HPOP how to check ?

Can anyone tell me where to check the oil level of the HPOP?

My truck has a hard time starting when it's cold first thing in the morning. GPR checks out. I have not tested the gp connections yet, but I have a pretty good oil leak at the back of the block and I'm wondering if I should check the HPOP to ake sure it's not draining

Hpop is located in the front of the engine. On the drivers side. There is a flat top with a screw in it. That is where you can access the fluid level. It is normally not needed since the oil in there kind of flows to the injectors as it is used to fire the injectors then it is recycled.

So how do you check the oil level? Do you have to remove the screw?

On my 97 when cool weather gets here I make sure the batteries are in tip top condition and a fresh oil change. Seems to help with cold starts. You also may want to plug the 110v block heater in at night. You can also cycle the glow plugs several times. They are still on even when the "wait" light goes out for about 2 or 3 minutes.

You remove the screw and stick a small something like a broom straw in. But.... If it's been running it does have enough in it. If it's leaking it would not work correctly when the engine is running.

Yeah until I figure out the cold hard starts I've been using the block heater in the mornings. And it's not too cold here but it does get to freezing at night. 36-32 degrees

Also the GPR upgrade to the Stancor might help even with good test results since they pass current to do the heat job the volt test may be misleading.
