It could be the fuel pump, or the banjo bolt on the back of the fuel pump. I had a leak from a sensor on the back of the fuel bowl. I can't remember what its called, but fuel was actually leaking out of that sensor, not where it connects to the fuel bowl.

fuel pump is a VERY common leak, just got done doing mine a/b 2 weeks ago. not too hard. looks harder than it is.

also the black sensor on the side of fuel filter housing is known for leaking as well..

the sensor is a vaccum switch, it operates the fuel filter light in the dash. It'll leak when the engine is running. I cant rember if its on the back side/bottom of the fuel bowl on a 95 or not, my 96 was on the fuel regulator. Its known to leak. Save yourself some $$$ and go to lowes/ home depot etc, and buy a pipe plug instead of buying the sensor from ford...75.00 IIRC.

Well that sensor is gone and has a plug in it so I doubt that's where it's leaking, I THINK it's coming from the banjo bolt on the fuel pump, anybody have any part numbers for the crush washers?

that big bolt thru the banjo is probably just loose....get a big box endwrench, (can't remember what size ....1 5/16 mebbe) and tighten the crap outta it...those should be copper washers, and leak if not guddentite.
