JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with Ford. The Ford Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.
Customer: High pressure oil at idle runs around 480 psi. Hard start hot , cranks good , after oil pressure builds, truck starts fine. If Shut off and immediately re-start, fire up quick. Idles and runs down the road smooth as butter.
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: Yep, did everything so far myself.
JA: Great! What have you tried so far?
Customer: Changed low pressure oil pump, HPOP, IPR, IPS, injector seals.
