Angry Fuel Leak in Valley 95 F-350 7.3 PSD

Had new fuel pump installed about two years ago by Ford Dealer. They did not replace any hoses. I now have a intermittant leak! When the truck is cold it leaks badly in the vicinity forward of the pump. After the truck is hot does not seem to leak as bad? From time to time I smell the fuel in the valley and at times theres what appewars to be a half to full quart ridng in the valley. Mostly drains down the rear to the ground. Can anyone direct me to guidence on replacing fuelines, removing fuel filter, checking for location of leaks, or any other helpful info.

MINE (99) did the same and it was, I can think of the name of it but its located behind where the fuel filter is. I think its a fuel drain or something. theres is a kit that i bought on-line. I'm sure if your look it up you can find it . the part at the dealer is over a $100 i got it on-line for about $20 this thing has a lever on it to drain it. I'm sure somebody else had this problem too.

Best thiing to do is wash it up real good in there, and let it idle while you look down in there with a flashlight to see where it is coming from.

You will want to check the fuel lines betwen the pump and the filter housing, down along the drivers side of the fuel filter housing are two wire connections that go through the side of the housing (1 is the fuel heater the other is water in fuel sensor) check the sensor at the top drivers side (fuel restriction sensor) these are very common to leak, there are some metal fuel lines that go into the head that have o-rings in them that leak and last the bottom of the filter housing can pit out and start leaking.

mine is a 95 and it did the same thing. there is a fuel line on the very bottom of the fuel bowl that goes to the fuel pump and it was dry rotted. replaced all of the lines and stopped the leak completely.
