Fuel leak at Banjo bolt or plug right below it?

Well I went to change my oil today and noticed some kind of residue all over everything..it was diesel. So I turned the key on, got under the truck to inspect the leak if I could see it, saw a lot of diesel dripping, got above the engine compartment and looked around, I could see a good trickle coming from the Banjo Bolt area.

I can't tell if it's coming from the banjo bolt itself, or that freeze plug with the blue dot right below it. Anybody dealt with this before? Or know how to fix it?

See the pic below: Passenger side banjo


Any help is appreciated!

make sure the fitting isn't cracked, if not get a new set of copper washers from ford.

Thanks! I'll get those tomorrow. I tried tightening the banjo, but could hardly get an 1/8th of a turn on it. When I replace the copper washer, is there a torque spec or just tighten till snug and do a 1/4 turn? Also, do I need to work fast to keep from losing diesel or does just whatever is in the supply leak out?

I appreciate the help man!

I think you'll get a tad bit of fuel to run out once you undo the banjo but as long as the key isn't in the on position it will stop dripping pretty quick.

Ok, banjo washers replaced...Not the fix! I believe it's the fitting on the hardline, it was still spraying out diesel, Here's a video of it:


Stealership will have the hardline in tomorrow morning..Any tips on replacing it? I think I'll be able to snake it around the fan shroud housing, Hope I don't have to take all that sh!t out!

torque on the banjos are 28 lb-ft. You should be able to snake that line out.

Oh ok, torqued it to the left n right a lil bit! I had to loosen the fan shroud 4 bolts, and that elbow on the intake that is fed by the intercooler. Had to bend the tube just a scoach.
