Please help identify this part and problem
This is the first post I have for this forum. Thank you for taking the time to read.
I am very new to diesel engines.
About the truck. I bought this truck about 4 months ago. This truck had its engine rebuilt last year. In fact, the engine just came out of the 1 year warranty. The transmission is three years old.
I just did an oil change about 2 months ago, including the oil filter. I have NOT changed the fuel filters since I've owned it.
I have two things I was hoping to get to the bottom of.
1. I was looking under the truck the other day and found some type of oil leak. I have not seen any drips on my driveway so I'm not sure if its an old leak or new, or just very slow. Can someone please help me identify what this leak may be coming from?
2. I am having this no start when hot issue. After driving for a bit, if I shut it off it does not want to start for about 20-30 minutes. Whenever that happens, it seems to start better when I give it a little gas while starting. Any thoughts?
Thank you all.
