01 7.3 Fuel pouring when running

Okay guys, I've read through some of these and can't find anything like this. I started my truck today to let it warm up, as it was around 35 degrees out. When I came back out to leave there was a huge puddle of fuel under the truck. I looked up under the truck and its running down the bell-housing of the tranny and just to the passenger side of the tranny. Anyone know what it could be?

Thanks

Look up top under hood. Could be a number of things. Drain valve o-rings, filter cap,...
There is a fuel line running down the passenger side of the motor to the rear passenger head. This line goes through a clamp and sometimes rubs a hole in the line.

Here's an informative video about what you're seeing -> POWERSTROKEHELP.COM - The Information Source for Ford Power Stroke Diesel Owners

I want to warn you though, Bill has some many goof-ball theories you should be careful of BUT this is a particularly useful vid....

Just don't take his word for everything he says about other stuff......

Do you guys think there is much chance that it is the HPOP? It is most definitely fuel leaking, but have heard horror stories about the HPOP.

I don't believe your problem is the HPOP. The link to the video shows the drain hole in the back passenger side of the valley. I guess you have a fuel leak up top, and it's draining out this hole, and showing up near the bell housing/tranny. Clean up what you can with paper towls, start it and look for fuel leaking with a flashlight.
