95 psd oil/fuel leak

ok so you guys have helped me out a bunch to pinpoint my oil leak. but there seems to be fuel in the valley of the motor also. i inspected and made sure the fuel filter lid was on properly and it was, so i am not sure where it might be coming from. any suggestions? thanks for your time.

on a 95 there are two most common fuel leaks , the vacuum switch on the side of the filter housing and the lift pump in the valley , could be both

cool. does the switch on the side of the filter housing need to be replaced completly, or is there just a gasket/o-ring that needs to be replaced on it? and same for the lift pump? thank you for your reply on this ignorant question.

Check all of the flexilbe lines between the pump and filter housing too. I just replaced mine. Tha Ford engineering number for the lines is F4TZ-9324-CA. You will need 3 of these.

i had the same issue... turns out it was the vacuum switch and the fuel pump (lift pump or whatever you want to call it. Then about a month later i had to replace the fuel bowl (fuel water separator). I ordered it online for 387 dollars and replaced it myself and wish i would have done the pump as well because it was easy to get to once the fuel bowl is out of the way. I am fairly mechanically inclined - but have never worked on a diesel and just pretty much read some posts and winged it.
