fuel dumping from the turbo
i bought a 94 1/2 f350 with 140k miles today. it is blowing fuel out of the downpipe/turbo clamp.i have real hard starts and the oil level is about 2 inches high on the dipstick.. i figure the only way to get fuel to the turbo is if it loads up the cylinder and blows through the exhaust.. what is causing all this fuel leaking..
my buddy that is a professional (auto) mechanic says the engine dropped a valve and that is why all the raw fuel is being blown, i don't think he really knows too much about a powerstroke engine. im thinking/hoping the injector is loose or needs 0-rings..my diesel knowledge is limited to several days of internet surfing and driving semis.i am very mechanically inclined,worked as a bike tech for 13 years,but diesel wrenching is new to me...what does this problem sound like? injectors leaking, bad exhaust valves, something else??
any help would be appreciated.. i did a search on this topic,didnt find much..i hope some one can help
