Have a 2000 F350 w/ 7.3. Truck developed and oil leak that I found was coming from IPR valve. Truck was running great. No issues at all. I removed IPR valve and replaced the thread sealing oring with an oring out of a Caterpillar oring kit. Measured oil ring and was the same size. Reinstalled IPR , checked oil reservior and truck would not start.

Called truck shop and was told needed to reseal IPR with OEM kit. REmoved IPR again and resealed with kit from Ford. Still no start. Remoeved IPR again checked to make sure orings did not get damaged and plunger inside IPR is free.

Any help would be greatly appreciated !!

Oh new member , looking forward to talking to you folks !

Oil came out with the IPR and may have drained the reservoir. did you check inside the reservoir? Go through all connections again. I've had a couple what seemed like good IPRs just get cranky with they stick a little.

Thanks for your reply.

Checked reservoir after I reinstalled each time. Oil is about 3/8" below bottom of threads on plug hole. I have checked connections several times and checked to make sure nothing else was knocked loose. I am bidding on a new IPR valve on ebay now. Like I said truck ran great until I removed valve and reinstalled

pull the ipr seleniod off. not the whole thing just the outer part. plug it back in and set if there is magnetism on the inside. If not, make sure you did noto smash the rubber on the inside of the plug itself, then check to make sure there is voltage to the plug. I just had an ipr that was working perfectly fine, take a crap after removing it and reinstalling it on another pump. Nothing else happened to it. I was told this is fairly common cause the heat makes the windings inside brittle and when moved they have a tendancy to break.
