7.3l Oil Leak

Hey all

Here is my situation.

Threw pushrod 5 exhaust. Replaced it and a week later the number 5 intake bent. I ended up replacing both now in number 5 and it has been 3plus weeks and the truck is running great.

I do not have a loss of power and it is driving like it use to. But I am now leaking quite a lot of oil from the passenger side exhaust manifold.

I have the AE tool and the CCT always errors 8 (cps) and either 2 or 5 but sometimes none just 8.

I am thinking of replacing the injector orings. Just looking for any other advice before I do so.

Thanks

you'll want to remove the manifold and have it decked. With bad orings, you'll see smoke at tailpipe and/or i beleive oil in fuel/bowl as well.

I wonder if the valve stem seal got messed up.
