u have one or more cracked injector cups. They are the brass thing pressed into the head that the two lower injector o rings seal to. All eight injectors will need to come out, pressure test the cooling system, figure out which one(s) are leaking, and relplace them. If more than one are leaking i would reccomend doing all of them. pretty time consuming repair, that requires special tools

If that is what it is and i was told that could be the problem already. do i need to test my injectors while they are out? can i go to the dealer to buy these brass bushings? i guess i shold replace my glow plugs while im in there also. this tool you talk about can i buy this or will one of my diesel friends have it and does it have a name? if i am going this deep what injectors would you recomend? i tow around 10-13k every weekend. thanks for the help.

u need a very large tap, a slide hammer, a metal protector, and an installer for the cups, and yes you can get them from the dealer. If youve never been into a 7.3 that deep honestly i wouldnt reccomend trying to replace them yourself, but thats just my opinion.....
