95 Powerstroke

i found a 95 powerstroke, 4x4 auto with a 4 inch lift with 35 in tires on 16 in rims. the engine is stock. has pretty much no rust on it and the guy is asking for $4500 firm on it.
the only problem with it is that when you drive it and then shut it off it wont start back up until it cools off. he said it is due to an IPR.
wondering how easy that is to fix and how much that is going to cost me. this will be my first powerstroke but im trying to buy one that the engine is mostly stock so i can do all the things i want to it. just seeing what you guys are think about this.

First off - I don't know everything about these things. Second, the OEM IPR for these trucks are fairly expensive. If you switch to a later HPOP the price for the IPR drops to around $200. You can put new O-rings on it pretty cheap if it is losing oil. I haven't done mine yet. It is kinda under the fuel filter housing on the right side facing the engine.

I'm also not sure that the IPR would cause the hot-no start condition you are describing.

im not sure if the starter turns over or not. i have not actually gotten a chance to see the truck yet because im so busy with school during the week i have only gotten to talk to the guy on the phone but im gonna try this weekend to see the truck. he said that ford said it was a problem with the IPR and that i could get a new one from international for around 175.00? im gonna try and take a buddy of ours out with me that is a mechanic so he can look at it too but just seeing what you guys thought about it and if it is worth it.

If its the IPR, then the fuel bowl has to be removed and its below that.

IF it was the cps you could pick the truck up and have it running right for like under 50 bucks. Need to find a scanner to pull some codes

^^ It's a '95, scanners are going to be few and far between. It'll have an OBD II port, but only have OBD I programming.

If it needs a new CPS, then the truck will be running just fine for under $30. ($23 at Auto Zone IIRC) 10mm wrench and about 10 minutes of kinda grimey work, and you're good to go. That's "IF" it's the CPS.
