Day before yesterday on my way home, my injectors started getting louder and louder. I was in 80e doing about 50 mph. I put the chip in stock and they quited down. Put it back to 80e and the injectors started getting louder while accelerating but would quieten down while steady on the pedal. I didn't feel like moving my tractor out of my shop to get the ranger out, besides I only have a 5 mile drive to work. Yesterday, 12-12-12, I notice what looked like water under my truck when I was ready to go to work. (been raining here). I put my chip in stock and away I went. When I got to work, I smelled diesel around my truck, so I looked under the truck and saw diesel leaking from the inspection plate. Told the wife I need to bring my truck home and get the ranger. When I drove into my shop, there was a solid line of diesel on the cement. When I got home yesterday evening, I opened the hood and took the plastic cover off and low and behold, there was diesel all over the place in there.
I knew it was diesel right off the bat, because it was so clean.
The reason I can't fix it right now, is because I don't have the blue o-rings to fix it. The reason I don't have the o-rings is because I used them all fixing some friends truck leaks. I need to get hold to Bob and get a few repair kits coming this way.
Make sure you guys have spare kits for this reason.
EDIT: I forgot to say the water drain valve o-rings are blown.

Man Rick, I am sorry to hear it..At least the Ranger is there for you..
My name is Pat, i have not purchased a firearm in 2
day (s). I am Strong, I dont need another Firearm, I am happy purchasing ammo for the fire arms I have. Purchasing the wrong ammo is not an excues to buy another firearm.
Me thinks that you need to drive your truck more . It set up blocks for so long that the o-rings went bad in it....... . The great thing about this is that you CAN fix it and give a good warning to the Brotherhood about what can happen over time.
Just razzen ya.
Have a great and safe Christmas.
