Fuel Leak from Front

a coworker has said that she has a considerable diesel leak that is coming down from the front. i haven't seen it, just her words. i asked if it could be coming from the water drain valve in the front.

she said her boyfriend said, and where he got this from i have no idea, but that it is the "waste gate valve". sounds weird to me, but i have and OBS '97, and hers is a '99.

does the analysis sound right or what else do ya'll think?

The fuel filter housing drain dumps fuel out at the front of the motor. Take the cover off of the top, and look for the yellow drain valve lever at the rear of the filter housing. Make sure that it is closed. If it is open slightly, it will leak like crazy. Hope this helps. There are many others on this board that have a wealth of knowledge... they will get you straightened out.

the orings are probally leaking on the fuel drain valve.

had to replace mine a few weeks ago, bought it at ford for under 60$. took me about an hour to do, so that means it should take about a half hour:beer3:
