after it sits for a while. take the small hex plug out of the top of the hpop resivore you should see oil to the bottom of the hole if not the check valve is letting the resivore leak down.

You access the IDM through the driver's side wheel well. You have to remove part of the inner fender to get to it.

If you have an '01 (from your other post) you don't have a FICM, you have an IDM and it's, as described above, in the Ft Dr fender well. It's kinda behind the F250 emblem and accessed from below by removing some of the plastic fenderwell bolts from the back far enough for you to get your tools & flashlight back there

wd-40 is a no go.

never use starting fluid on these trucks, unless you would like to rebuild it a second timewink:

did you make sure your getting fuel to the fuel bowl?

You may have not noticed,,,, this post has been resurrected from 2008!

I bet the OPs problem has been resolved

BUT, what don't you like about WD-40? I've always felt is a good, safe alternative to Either (no question, EITHER is a "No Go"). Most aerosol stuff like WD uses Propane as the propellant and that's what the engine runs on more than anything else. I'm sure in the case of WD the oils in it contribute to running too but, in any case, I think it's safe enough.

Unless you know something I don't??
