Need some quick help with the questions.

Ok i have a 94 PSD. I baught it with 180-190k miles on it for less than 1,000. I baught it off my friend who is going with a brand new F350. When i picked up my truck, my friend said that the truck developed a skip a week or so ago. I talked to a few diesel mechanics, and a friend who rebuilds injector pumps/injectors. They said the skip could be caused by worn out orings.
I went to International and baught new injector orings, fuel filter, and valve cover gaskets. I took out the injectors, didnt see any bad orings. Put the new orings on, and injectors back in. Went to swap the injector/glow plug wire harness to the new valve cover gaskets and i saw 1 harness had a burnt and melted connector where it plugs into the valve cover gasket... could this be my skip problem?

Does anyone else on this board have a leaky dipstick/oil pan problem? I moved my dipstick a little when taking off the pass side valve cover now the truck is leaking oil badly from there. Can the pan be removed in chassis?


thanks guys.

the harness could be the cause of your miss. You should be able to get a new plug to repaire.... as for you dipstick you should be able to pull it out and put a small amount of silicone on it and re-install it.

Yep, a miss is often caused by burned or loose valve cover wiring plugs.
Here are some pics of the dipstick on my 99, it has a O-ring inside the pan and a large nut on the outside.

Yea, to remove the pan you would have to pull the engine. I think I would carefully try snugging it up with channel locks before pulling the motor.

well i wish the dipstick leaking was my main problem right now. I just did all the oring on the injectors and i got some oil into the cylinders when removing them. I tried to suck out as much oil as possible, but when i went to start the truck tonite it hydrolocked.But i dont think i bent and rods because it locked up right away and didnt have a chance to start. Oh well, im gonna look at it tomorrow.
