Greetings,
My name is Mike I am a soldier currently deployed in Iraq. I was just wondering if anyone knew of a good shop around Youngstown, Ohio,Western P.A. The truck will be in The East Liverpool, OH area right on the border. See what happened is right after I deployed in March from Ft.Hood, TX. The storage facility I was using called my wife and told her when they started the truck (they were doing this once a week) it was leaking fuel. So either the fuel line is messed up somehow from sitting:confused: or the O-ring on the injector took a dump. Or who know's? Anyway my Dad is going to Texas this week and while he is down there he is going to bring it back to Ohio on his trailer. I was just wondering if it is the injector o-ring does anyone know of a good place to take it besides the dealership. Or does anyone know a rough estimate the dealership is asking to do this. I would fix it but I'm in Baghdad and I kind of wanted to use the truck when I come home for mid-tour leave in September. Dont really want to wrench on my truck in the short time I'm home. Just my jeep:) Any help would be greatly appreciated. Oh and any questions just ask. If I dont get back to you in a timely manner please be patient. I run a lot of patrols. Thanks again!

Wow that was fast! Thanks Scuffy for the tech help. I have never had to mess with this truck except maintenance. Don't really know to much about the plumbing.

And SMKSTAX Thanks for the link I'll check it out. East Liverpool, OH is 40 minutes from Pittsburgh. I could definately get it to there. My Dad drives Truck so anywhere that is in a 100 mile radius is great.
Thank You

Thanks guys! We really appreciate the support! We do it for you and your families!

Dont laugh but the problem the whole time was that the fuel filter had come loose. I of course was not home but my wife crawled up there over top the engine with a 1/2 inch ratchet and myself on the phone 7500 miles away and with my guidance tightend it up. It held up perfectly. Anyone know the torque specs for that? I must have not have tightened it up enough because I was afraid it would strip. Thanks again everyone for all your help!
