94 f250 7.3l idi diesel leaking fuel from injectors/???
ok, i have searched quite a few posts to try and find the answer i needed for my problem but couldnt find the exact answer i was looking for so i decided to post my own thread.
i have a 94 f250 with the 7.3l idi diesel and a e40d trans. the truck only shows 94,000 miles on the odometer. i just bought this truck a couple weeks ago and i am finding some problems as i drive it more. first off, the truck does have a bit of white smoke coming out the exhaust at times, which leads me to think that an injector/injectors might be bad. ok, also, all four injectors on the passenger side are leaking out fuel. now, i dont know if i need to replace the injectors on that side or just get a return line kit and install it??? i do know that it gets to leaking really bad after driving a bit.
oh, by the way, i am very impressed with this sight and the help and knowledge to some of these guys on here. i have been a member of several different car and truck forums, but this one is by far the best when needing technical advice. thanks to all.
umm, not to bad. i mean, i park the truck in our shop which gets pretty cold, but i crank it a few times and it starts right up. it does idle pretty rough for about a minute or two, then it straightens out and idles and runs just fine.
When you replace 1 you need to replace all of them at least on that side.
The problem is the orings get hard and brittle due to the heat if you disturb them in any way they will start leaking making it to where you replace 1 you will start a leak on down the line.
The best bet is to get a return line kit and replace the whole works, T's, hoses, clamps, and o-rings. Any partial replacement of these items is temporary at best, as if some parts are failing , they soon all will be the same state. Kits are available o-line for 25 -30 dollars.

I would install a new fuel filter filled with a good additive cleaner first I use howes but some on here prefers diesel seafoam etc lucas is another one and see if it cleans up your injectors.
How much smoke you got and when.
im having all most the same problem but i even got new hose and clamps but they just keep poping off its driving me nuts and when i asked for a return line kit i got a funny look from lordco should i try napa ?
