I think the IPR o rings are the problem???
I have read up on this site and many others to try and find out what the crap happened to my truck and I think it sounds like it might be the IPR o rings so I wanted to make sure I have this right.
Here is what happened:
Prior to today there have been absolutely no problems with starting or running.
7AM: Truck started quick like it always does with no problems. It was about 45 degrees.
Drove to my parents house about 15 minutes away with no problems
7PM: Truck started quick again with no problems and it was about 45 degrees again.
Drove 2 miles and turned the truck off to go in a store.
7:30PM: Truck cranked longer than normal. Took about 5-7 seconds to start which it never does.
Drove to my house which was about 10 miles away. The truck still seemed to run fine and there were no lights coming on or gauges reading high or low.
7:45PM: Shut the truck off. Let it sit for about a minute. Went through normal starting procedure and it now wont start at all.
9:45PM: Tried to start the truck again and it still wont start.
When I am holding the starter on the RPM gauge is at about 200RPM, The fuel gauge drops from about 3/4 to 1/4, the oil pressure gauge climbs, I heard the fuel pump prime, I hear a noise that sounds like a pump/generator under the hood (passenger side fender well) and that stays on for quite a while.
I dont see fuel or oil leaking from anywhere or in the valley. The Oil was changed last week so I checked its level. When the engine was cold (because I cant start it) the oil level was about 1 inch higher on the dipstick than the top mark in the etched area.
Would I be right in thinking this is the IPR o rings??
