If your standing in front of the truck facing the motor...its on the right hand side, in the back, between the valve cover and the turbo (basically under the turbo). Hard to see...and hard to get at. Most guys pull the turbo to change it, but I changed mine without doing that. The special socket makes the job alot easier sir.
To access the IPR would require said socket, a universal and LONG extension. You access it by unbolting the coolant degas bottle from the cowl, removing the rear FICM mounting bracket in order the get your LONG extension, universal and socket in there to crack loose and remove the IPR. By the way, you can buy the IPR socket from Wally Mart. It looks like this:
And if you want to have a new one on hand, the part number from Ford is 5C3Z-9C968-CA (Motorcraft number CM-5126).
I'm assuming you are trying to repair the no-start issue described in your other thread where we bumped heads. Is this a no-start PERIOD, or no-start only when the engine is up to operating temperature?
It is the same issue. I am sucking it in and I am bringing it to a new mechanic tomorrow, I feel he is trustworthy and moral after speaking with him. I was just hoping to save some money on this (that$ the killer for me), I am losing money having it down. I really hope you know I am genuine when I say I respect and hold you all in esteem on here.
It starts, I picked it up from ford, drove it sixty-seventy miles home, shut it off, and one minute later turned the key and it started. It started yesterday both times i tried. A little different than the normal start, longer crank. Haven't tried it today.
This all started with a P0460 code. Ford might have pulled some codes, that didn't come up on my OBD Scanner,I didnt look at the sheet yet. I do want to, and will pick up a scan guagell
I was just dickin around with it while I am idle, learning, reading up etc. I do take good care of it, I don't work it hard, So far I have done all repairs myself, I am not a mechanic, but I am also not dumb. It's the little things that get ya, special tools, little tricks etc. I do want to change the oil again, I put 15 40 rotella in it in late november, and I wanted to change it out and put the 5 40 in, but never got around to it. Just killin time, thats all
P0460 is a fuel level sensor circuit 'A' code. Depending on the conditions, the PCM COULD limit power output (or "DEFUEL" as you put it), if fuel level detection is determined to be excessively low. Are you running your truck excessively low on fuel by any chance?
Well the gauge was acting up, so a few times it got to fuel level low empty. So answer yes. By the way that issue seemed to start when I was using shell gas, I always get fuel at the same place (by the by), I have since gone back to Irving. But after I noticed it I started and since then I consider half a tank empty. I just went out reached in, put the key in, turned it and it started np with a slightly longer crank than normal, but almost a weak start rather than a roar to life.
