7.3L died 110 miles from town

I was driving my 01 7.3L at 65 cruise control. Check Engine light came on and lost power, pulled over and Ive got oil all over top side of motor, no oil on dipstick. I pulled a uncontrollable ICP or IPC code any help would be appreciated my truck sittin on the shoulder.

You probably blew one of the o rings for the high pressure lines that leave the high pressure oil pump. Two are on the drives side of the pump...right next to the fuel filter...and the other is just a plug on the back of the high pressure oil pump.....there is a good chance that if you fill the motor and high pressure oil resevour with oil.....and crank it a bit...it will fire and get you home. stop every 20 miles or so and check the oil level....once you get home get it to a shop first thing in the morning....those lines probably were leaking for a while before the motor shut off....it shut of due to not enough oil to run the injectors

Im in Alaska, but temps were 15-20 degrees so I dont think that is a factor. Im hoping it is a fitting or hose of some kind, But Im worried its the turbo. I only have 52k on the truck and im diesel ignorant, but Ive done all maintenence recomended by dealer. I just installed superchip programmer in december, but was running tow safe mode.

The O-ring kit I purchased from the Ford Dealer to fix my oil leak which was not as bad as yours was like 15 bucks, to replace the O-rings took about an hour to do in my shop behind my house. I would figure if you take it to a dealer probablly around a hundred bucks.

speaking from personal experience with dealers...bring your own vaseline..and don't expect a kiss afterwards.

the o ring kit im reffering to for him retails for about 50 bucks and is going to require about 2-3 hours of labor at most dealers. there is a special tool required for the repair...so doing it yourself isnt easy....
