Fuel bowl sensor-I'm confused
I am new to the forum and have found it to have a ton of useful information, but I am confused somewhat. I have a 1997 F-250 7.3L PSD that has begun to leak fuel. My fuel is leaking out of a sensor that is located on the driver's side of the fuel bowl, near the top of the bowl. The sensor is installed on a horizontal plane and threads into the driver's side of the bowl. The sensor in question has 1 electrical wire attached to it. It looks similar to an oil pressure sensor. I have seen it called a water in fuel sensor and I have seen it called a fuel filter restriction gauge. Can anyone give me a definitive answer as to what this really is? Thanks for any help you can provide. I wish I had found this forum sooner.
