Oil blown all over

HELP!!!

I was on my way to work today in my 2000 7.2 liter. I started losing power. My first thought was that I was not getting fuel. I thought my filter may be clogged. I pulled over and the engine idled fine, but then died. I looked under the hood and saw oil on the intake manifold and the exhaust downpipe. I crawled under the truck and the whole chassis was covered in oil. I think I lost oil from the high pressure pump. What do I look for? Where do I look. I could not tell where the oil was leaking from because there was so much on the chassis. Any input will help. How much might it cost?

Fill it back up with oil and crank it then look under the hood to see where it is coming from, could be something as cheap and simple as an O-ring, or HPOP hose. Or as bad as a blown HPOP pump or worse, just gonna have to look.

Here we go again.

I'm back again. A week after I got it out of the shop the same thing happened. Now the mechanic is saying I need a new HPOP. He says that since it blew another o-ring something must be wrong with the HPOP. He says it is building too much pressure. Is this feasible? How do I know if the HPOP is bad? Is this hard to install, or can I do it myself?

only way HPOP could build too much psi is the IPR is stuck closed.The truck would run like crud and knock like crazy.It blew another oring cause it wasn't properly installed.The HPOP lines are oring boss and don't require you to tighten the liven crap out of them to seal.The oring does the sealing and if it is cut or damaged in anyway when installed will leak and blow out again.You are also suppose to use loctite 680 I believe which is a retaining compound for the threads so they don't back off.

I agree with the above, change the O-ring and put a quality one in like a Viton.
IF you do need to get a new HPOP, they run from $350 to $450 on the net and are installable by the home mechanic in around 3 hours with a little cursing. I’d bet there aint an HPOP problem.
Exactly which O-ring is blowing out?
