Exclamation 2000 Superduty leaking fuel/hard to start

I have a 2000 SD with 312,000 mi that is leaking fuel from what looks to be some sort of drain outlet on the left side of the engine near the bottom of the engine. There also looks to be some fuel sitting on the top of the engine block behind and below the fuel filter assy. I don't drive this truck much anymore, but need to get in condition to sell. Any suggestions before I take it in?

Once it pumps the filter housing full again, it starts up and runs great, but still leaks fuel out of this drain tube.

You need new O-rings on your drain valve it is a simple easy fix. Also your hard start is most likely caused by the leaking fuel as it is not getting a good supply of fuel. There are many postings and threads about the O-rings I am talking about. I personally never done this repair but from my understanding it is quite simple and realitively cheap to do.

Thanks BigCountry. Does anyone know how to do this? It doesn't look like that thing is fun to take apart.

Yeah, Stump. I already have a newer one. I have a shadow grey 2005 quad cab 4x4. I really like that 6.0 and the ride is much better. However, the fenders and bed isn't near as tough as my 2000. Any little thing will dent it.

I'm actually on my 5th F-250 and third diesel. I'll be buying them as long as the good Lord will give me the means or Ford goes out of business.

I saw on a commercial the other night where they are coming out with a 6.4L. Does anyone know anything about it?

Check the forum page, under 6.4, I think there's some stuff in there. Glad you got it fixed up.
