'95 7.3 Powerstroke will not start hot. IPR valve?
My 7.3 powerstroke will not start hot... in fact my father was driving when he put it in a lower gear to slow down and it quit running. I gave it a shot of ether and it started and runs fine. (Replaced filter).
Once the engin is warm, it will not start without ether.
The local dealer says I need a new IPR valve and wants to charge me $998.00.
In reading other post, some people say an O-ring sometimes burst.
Do you think I need an IPR valve or just an O-ring?
I think I can get an IPR for about $400.00. Can I put this baby in myself and save the labor? I don't even know where this IPR thing is, but I am somewhat mechanical.
