Diesel Leak - Help needed

For a week or two I've been smelling Diesel off and on. I noticed it more when the truck sits in the driveway and runs. Like in the morning when I start the truck with the remote start to warm it up before leaving for work. Well this morning when I came out to leave I noticed a small puddle of Diesel under the truck. I climbed under there and followed the Diesel trail all the way up to the Fuel Filter Canister on top of the engine. Here is a picture of where the Diesel is dripping from This is looking over the top of the radiator at the bottom of the fuel canister:



This is where I could see it dripping from:

I just recently bought an '06 and when I got it home I had the same problem. I searched around here and found tons of help about this. I called the local dealer and had them order the new gasket ($4.77) had it installed in about half an hour and the leak is gone and so is the diesel smell coming through the vents in to the cab. It's really an easy fix. GOOD LUCK!

Its your fuel pressure regulator. ford has a repair kit, comes with gasket , orings, and the spring. fairly common leeak on the 6.0. most ford dealers will have this kit in stock and is pretty cheap.
