Angry Still Leaking Fuel

So after a new lift pump diesel is still leaking (nowhere near as much though) under the turbo pedistal. It looks to be running down the hard line that goes to the rear of the head on the passenger side. Anybody dealt with this before? It's been one thing after the other with this truck and now my starter is going out too.

To me, it sounds like the Banjo bolt/ washer is leaking. (since it's running down the hard lines) If possible, I'd try to make sure there isn't a crack in one of the hard lines near the HEUI pump. IIRC, there's supposed to be a crush washer between the HEUI pump, and the Banjo bolt. I know there was someone else on here, who had a leak where the HEUI pump and the Banjo bolt came together. (and not too long ago either) Though I don't remember who, or exactly what they did to fix it. (improvised a washer I think) Do a thread search for fuel leak, and read through the threads. (I wouldn't go back any more than a couple months)

Hope this helps.

Yep, get back there with a wrench and see if the banjo is tightened down. Also make sure it is seated correct. They are a PITA to ensure it is on tightly

I'm an idiot! I checked the banjo bolt today. It's tight. The leak I'm having under the turbo is OIL, not fuel. Don't know why I didn't notice that earlier. Oh, I fixed the starter today too There was no nut on the switch wire and now it starts soooo much better.

Ok, so.........no more fuel leak. = Good news. Fixed starter. = Better news. Now have oil leak under turbo...........theoretical easy fix. Most likely the o-rings in the turbo pedistal need to be replaced. (probably less than .50 cents of parts)
