Re: High Pressure Oil Leak
[ QUOTE ]
I noticed on Ford Dr's site, an article on high pressure oil leaks. One of the early warning signs could be longer crank times. My new 05 6.0 Excursion definetly cranks longer than my last 6.0 did.......sometimes as long as 5 seconds. Question is: What IS a normal crank time......and lets assume no block heater plug used, and we can also assume an ambient temp of say, 50 degreees.
Thanks in advance!
[/ QUOTE ] I have noticed the later 6.0s will crank slightly longer and that is normal. If you have the high pressure oil leak most will not start when hot due to the leaking fitting at the HPOP. This is only on the 05s and later engines. I have no idea why they went to that POS quick disconnect fitting on the later engines. It is not a fun job to replace it.
