Ford Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi, My Name is ***** ***** for posting your question to just answer. I am a independent contractor for just answer, and ASE Certified Master Auto Technician with 20 years experience. I am confident we can resolve your problem together.Please remember I don't know your skill level. I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle. It may take a few back and forth replies to get to a satisfactory resolution.There will probably be some equipment needed for a proper diagnosis. If you are not comfortable with this or do not have any test equipment please let me know ASAP. I also try to give all of the information you may need expecting a positive rating. I am not compensated for my time until you leave a positive rating. Your rating should be based on the service you received.
Lets start with what maintenance have you done?
When was last trans service? if you have not done a trans service ever I strongly suggest leaving the trans alone or take to trans shop and be prepared for an overhaul.
When was last transfer case fluid change?
OK. If the trans has never been done I would pull the dipstick and check condition of fluid. If burnt smelling or brown. DO NOT DO ANYTHING. Typically the pump seal leaks when a bushing is worn meaning you are due for an overhaul.
I would strongly suggest changing transfer case oil and diff fluids as well. They are all over due.
I personally would only get the HPOP seals at the dealer.
As far as the suspension I would suggest checking the ball joints and the U-Joints in the axles. Again I would only get these parts at the dealer. Aftermarket will be more expensive and not last.
I have had pretty good experience with products from sinister diesel. I will opt out since you dont want my help though
Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose) I prefer to work when others don't, I am here around lunch and after dinner till after midnight.
The previous tech has opted out. Would you like me to help?
Hello again Chris here,
Are these still the only questions your needing answered.
This is my 1st answer, but does not have to be my only answer. You the website and myself expect you to have a ~~~5 STAR EXCELLENT~~~ experience with my help. Please let me know if you are pleased by selecting a star rating above or by replying and saying your pleased. Not rating or rating 1-2 stars does not benefit you nor me in any way. Follow up and reply as often and when needed, there is no extra charge to do so.

Sounds like your dealer does not know how to look it up. Use these http://www.dieselorings.com/8-002ex-extended-hpop-o-ring-kit-with-pump-hose-fitting-repair-kits.html
Yes it does.
For this repair there are no other recommendations on things to do in that area.
That is a tough question for me to answer if a mechanic whom does not work on diesels can do this repair or not. I would have to see the mechanic work and know them prior to making a close guess.
