Ford Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi. Have you checked the oil level? Does it seem like there is fuel in it?
The oil shows full on dip stick but has a faint oder of diesel
Can you do a coolant system pressure test? I think you blew the headgasket or an injector stuck open and when you shit it off the cylinder filled with coolant or fuel and is now hydro locked. The engine is probably not hurt though if it only hydro locked while it was sitting there.
How do I let the pressure off if it has a hydrolic lock?
I cannot find a glow plug any where on the engine (tongue in cheek) I also cannot preform a pressure test on the coolant system. If you could start me in the right direction I can usually get through the procedure of taking a glow plug out. Finding it is hard. Do you think this needs a shop? we are quite a ways from one.
That is the info I can work with. Thank you very much and I wish you well.
