i know there is alot of topics on this, but i am stumped as where to start, if i let the truck sit for a day or to the hpop bleeds almost all the oil down, and if i fill it up through the plug it fires right up! i am just wondering if i should take it in or start with the basics, injector o rings, the liitle check valve down in the valley or what? any help would be great !!

Thanks
Rick

it will fire it up eventually but it usually takes 3-5 times cranking it until it will start then it runs rough for a few seconds then it will run fine

I have taken the check ball and valve out of the engine valley without taking the hpop out. If there's no engine oil in the valley, I'd start there. Make sure nothing is caught in the ball area that won't let it seal against the block. Don't drop the spring......you will need a good universal joint and some extensions.....its the size of a 3/8 drive ratchet.

If that's not your problem, you could have a leak from the resivior....in that case, you will have to remove fuel bowl and top of the resivior to see....

Fuel leak is not an issue with this.

You can take it put and clean it and to look at condition. You will have to order one form ford. Its a three part assembly. Ball, spring, and the plug thing that screws into the block

I get what you mean on fuel leak. I'm talking about internal leak from the hpop resivior. It can leak back down into the block.

Just see if there is an obstruction in the spring area, or the ball is corroded or dirty

Hello,

I got the same problem with my 02 right now its hpop res drains off over night. I have to fill the res up then crank on it to get it to start. So I don't see a check valve in the res or in the stem pipe.but i did see some metal in the screen at the bottom of the hpop res. So I need some help lol please :)
