engine pics

I've got a 1996 with 251,000 miles that has not been taken very good care of. It has diesel leaks and misses when its cold etc. I'm wanting to start putting a little money into it but I don't know what all the sensors under the hood are called. I have diesel leaking out of one of them. Does anyone know of a site or thread that has some pics of all the stuff under the hood?

I'm not sure of a site, but a good Ford parts person will be able to help you. Just tell him where the sensor is, and he should be able to tell you what it is. I had to replace the same sensor you are talking about. I'm not sure what it's called, but I told the parts man I needed a fuel pressure sensor, and he got what I needed.

That's just what I was needing. Thanks a bunch. Got the leak fixed with a plug where the vacuum switch was. Still have other issues. It lopes at an idle and If you don't plug it in it won't start and when you finally pull it to start it, it misses terribly for a while. I have changed glow plugs and relay and made sure they were working. Acts as if fuel is leaking back and getting air or the injectors are misfiring. Anyone else solved this problem?

Arrow

maybe its normal in colder days, and the EBPV is working as it has to, but you should check the fuel pressure.

Glad that the link was helpful for you.

Good luck.

Probably the injectors or something in the fuel system. I would start with the fuel filter then possibly pump or injectors. Have you changed the pump or injectors yet or tried some fuel system cleaner? I have found the ISO-Heet dry gas (red container is for diesels yellow is for gas) does the trick in the colder months.

It's not the filter; change it regular. After reading some other threads I have narrowed it down to injectors and probably thick oil in cold weather. I have decided to live with it and keep plugging it in every night. Thanks for all the help.

Thought I would chime it late...amsoil makes an oil for cold temps. My brother lives in Wells Nevada (-18 degrees the last month) says the truck starts like it is 70 degrees outside. AMSOIL - Synthetic Oil, Motor and Engine Oil, Lubricants, Air Filters, Oil Filters and Greases
