There are O-Rings under that plastic cap .... most likely they need to be replaced ..... go ahead and buy a fuel return line kit and replace all O-Rings return lines ... I learned this the hard way .... its easier and saves u headaches down the road

I don't know if I have the 3/16 or 1/4 fuel line, can you tell from my picture ?

I have a 1990 E350 van.

This page seems to have kits for both configurations : http://www.intellidog.com/dieselmann/ford.htm
