fuel gushing out from under truck HELP

I parked my truck and when i was letting it idle it was gushing fuel out. When i turn the truck off it stops (so i know the fuel pump is working HAHA) I took the fuel filter out and it was draining out of the bowl. it looks like its under the bowl/filter housing. I NEED THE HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

on the right side of your fuel filter canister there is a sensor looking thing with one wire plugged into it. the guy at the dealer said it was a fuel filter vacuum switch? where the metal mates with the plastic it leaks so check that. it happened to me a few months ago. the part is about 80 bucks here

Check and see if its coming from the drain valve. If it is its the orings.Separator Valve Rebuild Also check your fuel bowl and make sure its not corroded or rusted out on the bottom.

CHECK THE TUBE FROM THE TRANSFER PUMP TO THE BOTTOM OF THE HOUSING ALSO CHECK FOR A CRACKED HOUSING, AND ALSO MAY BE THE DRAIN VALVE AS WELL.
