94 7.3 leak

Firstly, thanks to anyone whom offer advice and suggestions to the following.

I have a 94 F350 with a 7.3 powerstroke (turbo). The only real issue i have is a small leak that seems to only leaks when truck is shut off. It looks like maybe a diesel leak, and its really not very much (but that stuff is hard on black top). Also like to note that it does not leak for very long, its just leaves a 4" by 4" spot (are in the ball park of that).

It is on the passenger side, and runs down the frame rails when parked on a hill (which drips down in 3 spots ). When parked on level ground it runs down the frame right behind the front passenger wheel. I cant really see where its coming from other then that. Hopefully some one here as had this issue, and knows exactly where it could be coming from.

Thanks again.

Take a look in the valley on top of the engine for fuel puddles. There are many places for leaks up there and they will drain down the back passenger side of the engine. Cheers!
