Last time a wrench was turned under my hood was back in January when I had my oil cooler replaced, EGR delete done, and turbo cleaned. I haven't touched anything besides an oil change since then. Randomly the other day, a buddy and I were headed into town to grab some food. When we were almost to the burger place, we started smelling diesel. Pulled up, jumped out and looked under the truck and fuel was POURING off of the engine. Popped the hood and saw fuel coming out of the fuel filter housing. Popped the filter out and the O ring was broken? Had another buddy come get us and go get a filter kit to replace the O ring and get it back together. Did that, no problem. No leaks. Funny thing about that is, that filter had been in there for 4,000 miles and that O ring never gave out til then.
Now my truck is sitting dead in my driveway with yet ANOTHER fuel leak. I just rolled into town and started smelling fuel again. Got it to my house and started looking. Found fuel leaking out of the fitting holding the fuel line on right here:
It looks like that fuel line has been bent and is now in there crooked and not sealing. I got a wrench and tried tightening it a little and now fuel gushes out as soon as I turn the key on. I don't really understand that fitting and I don't understand why that line is in there like that, it looks like it should be leaking being in there that crooked. Like I said before, the last and only time it's ever been in the shop was January and now 6 months later I've got this random fitting leak that has my truck shut down in my driveway.
Can anyone give me an idea of how to remedy this?? I'm not super mechanically inclined, but enough to know something got messed up here. I'd take it to the shop that did the work, but it's approximately 70 miles west of where my truck sits in a puddle of diesel fuel. SOS!!!
