I have a fuel leak and its dripping out of the hose underneath the water drain switch on the Fuel bowl i think thats what you call it, behind the fuel filter. I have been reading a little and I guess the 0 rings go out or what not.. I need info on what i have to order or what kit i need to get to fix this. Its leaking alot of fuel..
2nd question..This truck is a 99 F350 quadcab dually.. automatic with 157k on it..I live in wisconsin and so winter sucks on these trucks..my question is..every time i start this thing when its cold and cold as in under 40 degrees...lol it starts blowing off pressure intill the truck gets to 150 degrees. I know the exact temp cause i have the edge insight on it. No tunes yet. It kicks its self into high idel intill i hit the gas or break then auto shuts off.. Is this normal, I ask cause i have had a 02 and a 05 duramax and neither did this. Plus my company had a 99 and a 2000 7.3 but they were standards...but they did not do this.. are there upgrades or mods for this..any info would be helpful.. Thanks
Also since im at it..This thing is also having problems with cold starts..cold starts as in not plugged in with in 4 hr or so if temp is down around 20 degrees. It will take 4 or 5 trys before it starts..Are the glow plugs weak? The relay seems to be working just fine..I have noticed my battery might be a little on the weak side..thinking about putting a maintainer on it when its plugged in. I have heard that injectors could also come into play with cold starts if they are going. please give my your thoughts or info. Thank you.
Planning on doing this soon too. One question I have is is it necessary to do the fuel pressure relief rebuild also at the same time? I dont seem to have any pressure issues but just wonder since I'm going to the trouble to rebuild the bowl. Just curious how many people if any also do this.
Just curious how bad of a leak you guys are experiencing. Mine is not necessarily leaving a puddle in the valley but you can definitely smell raw fuel after the truck has been driven. I checked around the bowl and all the fittings and connections have dust and grease(assuming from fuel) but I'm not really seeing anything that obvious. You can definitely smell it when you are close to the fuel bowl. Wondering if I should just order the rebuild and passenger side line as well.
