fuel leak

The other day i was working on my truck and i decided to drain the water out of the bottom of my fuel filter by cracking the valve. Now when i start my truck fuel drips out of it. It has to be that valve because its coming out the same place as when you drain it. any ideas?

Replace the o rings on your drain valve. The size is 1/2"odx1/4"idx1/8" thick. Make sure to get the Viton o rings because they will hold up to the ulsd fuel unlike the factory ones which shrink and leak. Should be able to find them at any local hose and fitting store for around a $1. Need two of them.

Plus you need the one for the top of the valve stem.

Just drain the fuel bowl. HERE is a writeup on replacing all 3 of the drain o-rings.
