Fuel leaks into the V while running..

I haven't gotten up there to see exactly where the fuel is coming from but there is a big puddle on top of the motor but it seems to run the same... What could it be?

Usually it is the O-rings on the drain valve, very easy to fix and costs about $2 or less. The O-rings are ”od, ”id and 1/8 thick if I remember right. I bought a set on eBay for $1.50 but you can get them locally from most hardware or auto parts stores.

On my 97 psd it was the vacuum switch on the side of the fuel filter housing.

Don`t know about the 99 compared to 97 but if the leak is there you can easily see it.

My '99 had the leaky o-rings - only took about 20 minutes to fix.
