97 diesel fuel leak in engine valley

I have a 97 F250 and it started leaking fluid around the bottom of the engine. First I thought it was a rear oil seal and then discovered it was a diesel fuel leak around the fuel pump or filter. I talked to someone else about this and he said he was having the same problem. I there an easy fix for this? Is this a regular problem? Can you point me in any "special" direction?

I had the same problem with my 99 F250 7.3 powerstroke. I found (with help from these guys on this powerstroke forum ) that it was coming from o-rings that have dried out .The o-rings seal the housing that the valve on the back of my injector pump.This valve drains the pump.Four Torx screws hold this piece on . Before removing the screws be sure to see how it all comes out.Be careful when removing the o-rings.Replace the o-rings and you are done.I am not sure if your 97 is the same but this info might head you in the right direction.

It is probably your fuel lift pump. I had the same problem. I replaced the pump and the leaking quit. Once the internal parts of the pump start to wear out they will start to leak. There is a post somewhere on here giving you step by step instructions on how to replace it yourself.
