Odd....

Been having trouble starting lately (40*+) I have 290,000 on it and have never touched the g.p's so I figured I would just put some in without testing them. Found a couple bad ones on the drivers side. When I moved the heater hoses (gently mind you ) this is what I found.



Looks like it has been that way for a while as there is dirt on the gasket underneath.

Am I missing something???? Wouldn't that kill four cylinders as well as the gp's???

Idk maybe I bumped it but unlikely as its way down in there.


Gp's test .6 .6 .6 2.5 I have decided to leave them till I have time to do the o rings too because it looks like a pia to get at them.

that's the plug that goes in through the valve cover gasket right? Goes to the glow plugs and injectors. Mine came loose on the passenger side and it definitely shut off those four cylinders.

I actually did the .50 well $.25 mod on the drivers side after I had a miss and took it to a diesel shop. I told him to check the harness but he put an injector in instead. When I went to pick the truck up after hours it had the same miss again. Researched it and took it apart and fixed it myself. Luckily he told me which side was acting up. I got him to refund my $550 and take the injector back out. I shoved a couple nails under this one for now since it is on the outside. Will mess with it more when we do the orings. Thanks. Maybe I did pull it off when I moved the heater hoses.
