Fuel Trickling From Filter Drain Hose
Time for another horrible explanation of a problem I've got. LOL I'll try my best this time:
The road in front of my house has a slight incline. The other day, I pulled my truck out of the driveway & got out to talk to my wife, leaving the truck pointing down the hill. When I walked back to the truck, there was a steady trickle, almost a stream of fluid coming out of the bottom radiator area. At 1st, I thought it was coolant, but after a quick sniff, it turns out it's fuel. I drove the truck to a friend's house & parked it on level ground. After about 20min., I went to check to see if there was a stream & it looks like it only dripped a couple of drops. Yesterday, I was looking for a vacuum leak under the truck(my driveway is level) & I noticed the hose for the fuel filter drain was saturated & it has dripped enough times to make a spot about the size of a half-dollar. I went up top to make sure the drain lever was in the right position & it is. The cap & housing is bone dry. However, the lever seems to move a little more freely than I remembered it to.
Performance-wise, the truck feels like it's running like a top, so I don't imagine the leak in it's current state is causing problems. But I'm sure this isn't a problem that's going to get better, it's probably going to get worse, right? Has anyone else had this happen to them? Where do I start looking?
