Hello, since you replaced the injector o-rings, it will take a lot of cranking to build oil pressure in the high pressure rails. It will take as many as 10 cranking periods of 10 seconds each. You should wait 5 minutes between each crank cycle to let the starter cool off. If you have someone that can help, you could loosen the ICP sensor on the passenger valve cover to help purge the air, and stop cranking and tighten the sensor as soon as oil is seen. Do not remove the sensor, only loosen about 1 turn. Thanks

Noise like it wants to start but nothing can u recommend something else
Ford Mechanic: Dieseljunky2, Ford Mechanic replied 8 years ago
OK, do you have a code reader or scan tool that can watch the sensor data (PIDS) so we can see if it is building pressure on the high pressure side of the system? Thanks

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey
