Fuel Problem

So, I was leaving walmart and smelled raw diesel. Got home and saw that my filter cap was leaking, not spraying, but more like a seep. So I changed the cap and oring and went for a drive.

I just bought this truck a few months ago and I changed the fuel filter the day I got it. The truck has always had cackle since I have owned it, and after I changed the oring and went for my test drive, I noticed the cackle was gone! The truck felt more powerfull and smoother too.

Later that day I got home and smelled diesel again. This time I poped the hood and saw fuel EVERYWHERE. So I put a wrench on the cap and tightened it down a little more and she stopped leaking.

Now my cackle is back, but it isn't leaking.

Sorry for the long winded post, but I guess what I'm wondering is why would my cackle go away if I had a fuel leak? I liked how much quieter the truck was... I want that again, but without the leak!

Any ideas?
