Leaking diesel 911!!!

Hope someone can help me asap. I have a leak in the fuel line coming from the top fuel filter. There is a metal line coming from the filter that connects to a rubber hose that has some sort of heat shield around it. The hose is only about a foot long but one of the connecters is leaking. Not sure how to take the connecters off. 2006 f-350. Got the part number off of it but can't find it anywhere 5c34-9j338-ak. Hope someone can give me any info. Thanks in advance

You're talking about the quick connect hoses im assuming near the steering box? If its leaking at the connection you'll need a 3/8 and 5/16 fuel line disconnect tool. Once removed its more than likely a bad oring inside. Good luck

The fuel line your referring to requires a special tool to remove it. If you look at E bay under 6.0 fuel pumps you will see the type of end the hard fuel line has on it. Inside the hose fitting end are three metal prongs that slide over and snap inside the wider metal part on the hard pipe.

You can purchase the special tool that slides between the hose fitting and the metal pipe to push the three prongs away from the hard pipe and slide the fitting off. The metal keeper that you see on the side of the hose end just slides first toward the metal pipe and then out of the way.

I was able to make a "special tool" out of the end of a unused caulk tube tip. The ID is just about the same as the hard pipe and you cut a length of about 1/2" and then cut a slit down the middle so you can slide it over the metal pipe. It should slide inside the metal hose end and disengauge the metal prongs. Once there, you should be able to slide the hose off the metal hard pipe.

Good luck. Wear eye protection. It may have some pressure in it.

You may want to actually confirm the leak is there. The hose fitting is "down hill" directly from the on engine fuel filter. The hard pipe connection to this filter/regulator has an O ring in it that has been known to fail.

It is quite possible that the fuel is running down the hard pipe and welling up in the end of the pipe to hose connection.

When you see fuel leaking from the hose connection, check the hard pipe above it with your hand or rag for a stream of fuel you may not see. Could be coming from the filter housing and might save you a wasted effort disconnecting this pipe to hose connection above.
