Fuel leak until warm.

Hey guys



My cousin called over here and said he has a fuel leak, but just to make sure before I order him some O-rings for the fuel bowl drain valve to check. He says it is comming down out of his drain tube and also down the front of the block, he was talking about having a sensor replaced a few months ago when it was over at the ford dealership having a UVCH replaced that had something to do with fuel I don't know the sensor he is talking about but its by the drain tube.



I know its a little spotty but I don't have the time to come over and look at it right now. He also said it stops when the truck gets warm any ideas?

Check the water lever, it might be turned open or the seals might be bad

Water level??? They guy said he has a fuel leak....


Probably just the o-rings for the fuel drain. many are having the same
issue. Do a little search and you will find the size you need. Make
sure to get the Vistion (SP?) ones. It is the ULSD gettin to the o-rings
and making the leak.

Alright funny guy(dmd), why don't you read my post again, I don't ever recall typing "level". I was telling the OP to ckeck his water lever as in the water separator lever thought I'd slim down my writing but apparently I need to go in depth for some people.

I already replaced my O-rings on the fuel bowl. It sounds like the sensor he is talking about is his CPS while he was over there and the fuel is just squirting up. I am not sure I'll check it out tomorrow when I go over there. I will get the O-rings from dieselorings.com
