couple of problems here
I have changed the Fuel filter,the air filter and ran some injector cleaner through the fuel system ( Diesel 911 ) engine still does not seem to be running as smooth as it was 2 months ago.
There is a small oil leak comming from the top of the motor. I have read about the o rings needing to be replaced. The dealer said it could be the pedestal and I should replace the turbo and the pedastal. ($2500 plus) I don't see any reason to replace the turbo since it still boost ok and it whistles fine. I have been told that I would know if the turbo was not working.Is this true?
How do I know if it is comming from the trurbo and not something else?
Last week I washed my truck. Every since then my turn signals have not worked. I have checked the fuses but none look blown. I have alson noticed the my brake light won't come on when I engage the emegency brake.
Anyone ever had this problem? How do I fix it?
I have recently put front rotors on the truck ( about 10,000 miles ago and now the brakes are pulsing when I brake.
Any help on this would be appreciated.
I am pretty mechanically inclined so I feel like I could save myself some $$$ buy fixing these problems myself..
THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR THE HELP.
Ok your oil leak is most likely not your turbo. On a 7.3L there is a brass plug on the passenger side valve cover by the firewall. It has a rubber o-ring that seals it. The plug is a 5/8 wrench to remove it, inspect the o-ring. O-ring from dealer is gonna cost you around 14 bucks but you get like 6 O-rings for this price. I chased an oil leak for 4 months before I found this brass plug. Pretty easy fix.
Turn signal problem is hard to trouble shoot with out being there. But I would check all the wiring and wiring connectors under the truck. Check the trailer light connector, check the lightbulbs and their plugs, Check the multifunction switch. If it is the switch let me know I have a brand new one in the box I will sell you cheaper then the dealer. I bought it at the dealer thinking mine was bad. I ended up with a cut in the wiring going to the back of the truck. So now I have a brand new multifunction switch sitting at my house. You can not return electrical parts to the dealer.
Brakes, did you clean the rotors before installing them. There is a protective grease to prevent rusting while the rotors sit on the shelf at the parts store. I suggest taking them off cleaning them. Maybe go to a parts store that turns the rotors and see if they are warped. If they are not warped after cleaning them with brake cleaner reinstall and see if that fixed the problem. Also check the calipers, and brake pads.
Engine running rough, could be a number of things. I suggest change the fuel filter again, fill up with new fuel do not add anything to the fuel and drive it see how it runs when you have nothing added to the fuel. Also is the check engine light on. Does it run rough only at start up or all the time. Have you ever replaced the CPS (Cam Positioning Sensor). Is your check engine light on. Need more info.
I hope I have been some assistance to you if not add more info to your problems and lets see if we can't help you out.
