HELP HELP I. AM. STRANDED.

OK... i'm stranded at school and i need help real bad.
Please pull through for me guys.

I changed my EBP sensor but took the bracket completely off to clean it real good. But when I put it back on it apperantly didn't seal because there is oil all over. What can I reseal that with? It had just a crappy o-ring seal that i thought resealed but now it's leaking oil.

Here's the problem. I did a backpressure test where you have to hold WOT for 30 seconds to make sure backpressure stays below 28 psi and it did. But then when i put it in drive afterward, it jerked and cut out and stalled.

I restarted it, oil pressure is normal, idle is normal, revved normal, all good in Park. But once I put it into gear it did the same thing. Cut out, clattered, jerked and stalled.

it is now 2 qts low on oil, i think because of it having 3000 miles on the oil, and that leak i caused.

IS 2 QTS OF OIL ENOUGH TO MAKE THE HPOP FAIL?? It seems like the injectors just cut out and quit.

Please help, i need to get this running TONIGHT.

HELP!

2 quarts should not make the HPOP fail. for the bracket I've used regular RTV silicon everytime I've removed mine and havn't had any problems. I would check the fitting and plug on the sensor and make sure they are both good.

That means alot to me. really. Any ideas you can tell me through the org? It would make sense to me that if that is not sealing, cause of the seal being bad and i probably bent it, that it won't work right..... but it did for a while, it was fine til i had it floored.... now something happened. and i dunno what. it's not leaking anything else, like coolant thank goodness.

Try taking the bracket back off, cleaning all the oil off and using RTV, visually inspect everything in the disassembly/ assembly process, add 2 qts of oil for good measure.

Agreed. Do you still have the scanner?

Well I did. I cleared the code for the backpressure and it didn't come back, so I think changing the sensor fixed that problem, but ME changing the sensor and not being careful enough caused another. (i bent that bracket covering the hole, letting the junk seal melt away)

Lesson learned, the HPOP doesn't work well when it's opened up, even a little, does it... We resealed it, and now it's fine. I've been driving it for about 3 hours now, i had some stuff to do. It's back to normal. Just checked it and no leaks.
