Hey guys, I parked my truck a few days ago in my driveway (up hill), and notice a leak from the torque converter cover, so I checked it and it was diesel. There was no diesel coming out of the fuel bowl drain tube at all and the axle was dry, only wet at the back of the engine.
So I did some research and found that the drain valve orings are a common issues and sometimes the fuel line on the passenger side.
So I got under the hood and the fuel bowl and filter as well as the surrounding area (fuel lines and valley). So I tried it all out with rags then paper towels until it was spotless and I got under the turbo and wiped the passenger fuel line, then I started the truck and was looking for leaks, couldn't see any leaks at all from anything, none of the fuel bowl connections, fuel lines anywhere, so I put a paper towel in the valley to see if it would catch any fuel falling no fuel so I look under the truck and there is a small area of fuel leaking so I let it sit it stopped, then I checked under the hood again, and nothing. so I move the truck to a different part of the driveway let it sit and there was some diesel on the truck again.
I don't know where else to look, it's my only vehicle and I can't drove it around with a fuel leak.
any help would be greatly appreciated thank you so much.
