it starts and runs fine..little rough until in warms up, but not bad.

Resolved Question:

I have a 2000 International with a 444e engine. If I start it every day it starts and runs fine. A little rough until in warms up, but not bad. If it sits over the weekend, it will start hard and the engine warn light comes on. Once it gets warmed up if I turn it off and restart it the light goes off. Sometimes it will barely start after sitting over the weekend. Colder weather also causes it to start harder. I am in southern CA. so colder weather is only down in the 40's.

Hi I'm Wayne, I will help you with this,

wayne :

This is a Typical IH engine problem, your problem is the HPOP (High Pressure Oil Pump), is seeping down the oil, this is what fires the injectors, very common problem, Get a reman pump and replace yours, cost about $300.00 for part

JACUSTOMER-cgwj6f3a- :

Hey Wayne,

JACUSTOMER-cgwj6f3a- :

That high pressure oil pump is more than I can afford right now. They want $682.00 for a rebuilt. I changed the oil again with a better quality, and it seems to be a little better. have to wait for the next weekend to know for sure. So it can sit for those 2 days. When I can get to it... is the oil pump fairly easy to switch out? Any special tools needed?

wayne :

That is High $$$ for HPOP, what state do you live in ??/

wayne :

May be better off, ordering on line.......

wayne :

no , no special tools,

wayne :

let me call a Buddy of mine tomorrow, , about Price, and shipping, again where are you at

wayne :

PS......... the oil change always helps, but a band-aid , per say

wayne :

Have gone thru this Many times in our shop ,our Trucks, and customer trucks

JACUSTOMER-cgwj6f3a- :

I'm in Los Angeles. The shop nearest me just closed down a few months ago.

wayne :

Morning , Talked to buddy, the price did go up, I did search on line and here is one for $408.00
