Oil Leak Problems

Hey guys I dont post much but I found a good reason to now lol. My 2000 F350 7.3L is leaking a consistant amount of oil all the time. I got to the point I wasn't checking it enough and I ran her down to almost dry and the truck stalled out on me....I know not good. Well what I was wondering is, is there any stickys on repairing all the common oil leaks on these engines and is the engine designed to shut down when oil is low before damage is done? And finally is there a sticky on adding a oil pressure guage to keep and eye on everything from the cab? Thanks guys.

OK first, because the injectors are driven by the engine oil delivered to the HPOP, one of the benefits is that's Not able to run with no, or little, oil pressure.

Here's an interesting video, BUT I have to warn you about this guy,,,, he makes Great Videos, that Does NOT make him infallible though. He's got some really GOOFY theories (not about this though) So, don't take him as your Guru, as many do Confirm his advice on anything else he says

Your leak is most like from the hpop. It can be repaired for under 75? If you do the work yourself. Do some searching online and you will find all the answers you need to make the repairs yourself. I did mine and it was not to bad. My only other suggestion is to replace the turbo o rings and rebuild the EBPV at the same time. These two places will and could be leaking. Do all three at the same time, parts will cost ~$200.00. Then you will be good for another couple hundred thousand miles.

It's not the HPOP, I already fixed that last year with the new plug. It is leaking around the dip stick area on the pan all around the where the pan meets the engine. Im just wondering if it is just as simple as dropping the pan and putting a new gasket on it or if its gonna be alittle more involved than that.

To drop the pan, you will need to pull the motor and turn it over. If the pan hasn't rusted through and your just trying to fix the leak at the dipstick, you can get a kit to replace the orings and nut. If you drop part of it inside the pan, Sinister Diesel has a kit that you can install without pulling the pan but it's not cheep.
