ran out of oil

I've got a 2000 7.3 and I went to start it and it fired up and I walked away then it died. tried to start again and it sputtered and died. pulled codes and got p1212 p1248 p0470. that brought me to check my oil and there was nothing on the stick. looked under the truck and oil dripping from a rusted through oil pan. f**k! we just got 4" of snow and its out side.

My questions are do I have to manually fill my HPOP
does any one think I might have damaged anything else?

Of coarse I will fix the leak and change Oil I don't think the truck was right out of Oil. but I haven't done anything yet cause I don't have the Oil put back yet.

Thanks for the help

The HPOP will fill as soon as you start cranking. Getting the air out may take a lot of cranking and driving ~50 miles.

One of the good things about a HUEI injection system is if you don't have oil, you can't inject fuel so there is a vary good chance that you will be fine just by adding oil and fixing the leak.

Agreed you probably didn't tear anything up considering these things hold 5 gal of oil, secondly it is very important to check the oil on these regurlarly as they developed leaks all of the time, and the rust on the oil pan ford has a TSB out on that issue

Here is a video of a new pan patch that these guys came out with. I don't know if anyone has tried it, but it might be worth a shot. Its better than pulling the engine to replace the whole pan. Its a 2 part video on you tube.

Who says you have to pull the engine to replace the oil pan?

Well most guys on here say the proper way to do it is to pull the engine and let the pan sit on the block upside down to seal properly. My dealer says they can do it in with the engine in, but i don't have much faith in them lately. I am only repeating what techs have said on here.

Ok just watched this, i hope this is a joke.. Ok it might not leak, but what about all the degrading metal from the crusty pan thats still in there putting particles into the oil.

well I just finished changing my pan. I don't know who started the rumor that you can change the pan without pulling the engine cause I fing tried. It was ever so close but I couldn't do it without braking something. I even removed the turbo and there isn't enough room. I also read that you should pull the trany back, but if you are going that far you might as well pull the engine. I pulled the engine and flipped it to do the job. its done now and back in and running. it did take a lot of cranking to get it started.

thanks to all that helped me.
