usually there is a check valve before each injector that holds fuel pressure in the lines before the injector. this is enough fuel to get the engine to run and start pulling more fuel in. there could also be check valves in line or at the tank leaking and causing all the fuel in the system to slowly drain back into the tank

It was leaking on the LP line on the HPFP. I think. After replacing those seals and parking it outside it started yesterday after sitting for 1 day, but now its leaking oil. I have not really had the chance to put a mile even on it. So time will tell if it was that seal or still somthing else. Right now I am pulling the cab again to fix the oil leak under the turbo, then reassemble. Assuming all goes well I might get to drive it sometime in the next month. Its likely something else will go wrong. Heck if I know. Its really kind of sad, I think I have owned it for 4 months, put thousands of dollars into it, made 3 payments, and I bet its sat more than any truck ive owned.

^ Here you go! It'll solve all your problems and probably be less painful!

Seriously, If I were you I would get out of this truck as soon as you get it road worthy again. Even if this is the last problem, you will always be waiting for the other shoe to drop. Been there and it sucks. Good Luck!

I haven't heard much about the 6.4's. I've only messed with the 6.7 Cummins. Are all of the issues you are having typical, or did you get a lemon?

The F-450 with a 6.4 in it that I was looking at had the exact same problems as he is having.

That is what I would like to buy for sure, but this truck is going to have to get me until Jan-Feb or a little after, I dont really have much choice in that. I mean I could but it would hurt the bank even more than it has already.

From what I can tell its not that common, it is becoming more common however, but its these guys running huge tunes and doing things like drag racing or sled pulling.

from the small base I have been around I would say no, though Tom claims it is. It just depends, I mean some of the issues I am having are my fault, I am not a mechanic, so make mistakes, the last 2 things were my fault, fuel leak was my fault and the oil leak was my fault. Same with the radiator, I nicked it somehow when it was out. What wasnt my fault was the front timing cover and oil cooler. No one else on the forums I am on has had the issues I have had.

I haven't been on the full size forums in awhile but just about every single truck that I can remember that did what yours is doing were Job 1 trucks. Some of the guys I talked to about this issue had never heard of it and they had 100-150k miles and I believe 1 or 2 had over 200k miles on them.

Ya our work F350's that they just traded in on 2011 F350's all had over 200k on them. They where all Job 1's, never had any major issues other then just stuff wearing out from all the miles + being on the right away for pipelines and just never shutting them off in the winter they will run for weeks at a time lol. I talked to the tech at our ford and hes seen one or two have issues with the cooling system.

I took a good 250 mile road trip today. highest oil temps were 197 and that was after 100 miles of cruising at 70mph then taking off at 3/4 throttle to 80mph. No loss of coolant, 15mpg, and oil levels are correct.

I think I finally corrected its issues. I just hope it lasts.

Next on the list is tires!

I believe it depends on location, in the south they dont really need to have antifreeze so most people dont try to keep the 50/50 mix. Sure that might work on gas engines but it doesnt for diesels.

Here in the north like you and I we keep that mixture as close to perfect as possible, no telling when it will be 100 or -10
