Help with fuel leak.

I have a fuel leak. It looks like it coming from a tube at the front of the HPOP. There is a sensor in top of it, but I cant tell where the tube comes from. The tube stops(it open) at the bottom of the engine block.

Thanks Bax

Judging from what your describing, it sounds like the tube you are talking about is the EBPS tube. I don't know too much about it but I would imagine you would have to have fuel coming through your exhaust to come out this tube. Do you have any white smoke or a diesel smell comin from you exhaust? Someone please correct me if I am wrong.

No white smoke. It runs fine, does well on cold starts( in the 20's here in SC).

Ok, The tube I described is not the one leaking. This tube goes up behind the HPOP, and I can't see where it ends. Its at the front passenger side. Any help?

The fuel water seperator drain valve is the yellow valve on the back side of the filter bowl. Mine leaked and i decided to replace the whole valve but like the other guy said you can just buy the o rings. Bit if your saying that the leak is coming from the end of the tube I would have to say its on of your fuel lines leading to or from the filter bowl. check all you connections and try to tighten them up. Im not sure if there are o rings int those fittings but you could try to take it apart and put it back together again. sometimes it works
