Customer Question
I replaced the High...

I replaced the High Pressure Oil Pump in my 1997 E-350, 7.3 diesel. The old pump had a censor plugged to it. The new pump has no censor to connect to. Now the truck will not start. Is the failure to start due to the censor, or lack of censor on the oil pump? If so is there a way to by pass the censor?

Mechanic's Assistant: When was your last oil change?

3 weeks ago, and the oil is up.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your E350 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes I am doing the work myself. I checked the fuel bowl to be sure the truck has fuel. now i am unsure where to start looking. the only thing i changed was the censor on the oil pump.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I think that is all, thank you.

You want a 5-star service and I want to provide a 10 star service. Please consider that I don't know your skill level as well as I can't see, touch, smell, hear the vehicle/machine in question. Please provide as much detail as possible and I will provide as much I can back to you.

Once an answer is provided, you should see a rating screen. Please rate my personal service to you. The ratings are my personal feedback, they are not the site feedback.

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
