Yep... The valve is on the back side of the round fuel filter housing under the plastic cover. There is a rubber connector from th valve to a hard line down the passenger side of the engine. I put a piece of fuel line on that to extend it down into a bottle when I drain off the filter (each time I change my oil and/or fuel filter).
See if you see fuel dripping out of that hard line or feel it to see if it's wet wit fuel.
$40-50 for a new valve if that's it. 4 torx head screws hold it in. Once the engine is cool, it's about 30-60 minutes taking you time to swap.
