1995 PS Fuel leak?

I would like some information on a 1995 7.3. Where are some common fuel leak points on the upper half of the engine, under the fuel filter? Now this is a 1995 so my drain valve is in the front of the filter assembly not the rear like most are describing. Iíve searched numerous posts and although all the recommendations are good, they don't seem to be very year specific. I bought the two little o-rings to replace the ones in the drain valve but the directions were for a 99.5 model P/S. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

fuel leaks on 95 psd's

You need to check:
the hoses leading too the filter and fuel pump
also the fuel heater in the filter bowl
there are some fittings at the inside back of the heads that carry the fuel to the injectors these have orings inside them that can leak
and the fuel pump. the pump has a vent hole in the bottom and when the diaphram leaks it will drain out this vent, just like the old mechanical pumps used on gas engines. If the leak is from there it's time for a new pump.
hope this helps

Jim

Shouldn't this stuff be covered under the powerstroke 100k warranty? I work for a Fire dept. and the local dealership is stroking us on the fuel leaks we're havin on our dive rescue. It's a 1999 F550 with only 11,000 miles.

I replaced my fuel pump over the weekend. I bought the necessary hoses from FORD. If you want the part numbers I'll get them for you. You might want to make sure the fuel bowl is not leaking out of the base. These are known to get pitted and wear thru. Other than that, like posted above just check all of the clamps.

i am having this same problem with my 95 powerstroke. it is shooting out fuel extremely fast from under the fuel filter. i am not sure which way it is coming from because it is ouncing off other components. i have talked to others and they have told me it is possibly on of the short hoses that connect the fuel pump to the filter, or one of the o-rings in them. i have also herd that the new ultre low sulfer fel is eating these hoses. i am a new member and i am having trouble figuring out who to make a new post for this problem, can any one help me out with either problems. thanks

It is 5 year 100k warranty, you are out of years.

The bottom of the filter housing could have a hole in it. I have seen them pit out and start leaking.

i did get it figured out. it was the p/s fuel return line. there was about a half inch split in the rubber line right out of the fitting and it was shooting fuel toward the rear of the engine. i am having a new line made for $20. it is real easy to get off but it cracked where the line is bent right after the fitting. the rest off the line was very very dry rotted. but thanks for trying to help me.
