7.3 leaking everywhere

i was going down the road in my 94.5 7.3 powerstroke and it started slowing down like it wasnt getting any diesel. i parked her and thought the svo i ran just clogged my filter. when i looked under i saw diesel pouring out from between the tranny and motor. now when i try to start it the valley just gets diesel in it. and the filter housing isnt filling.

Pull your fuel filter and see if your housing has rotted out.

Is the fuel bowl holding fuel? Drain the bowl and physically check it out by looking and you could use the screwdriver trick to poke down in and see if you have and soft spots from corroision.

well it doesnt spew really it must be really small but after a while the valley will fill up and run down the back of the motor. the only way to keep her running is to spray ether in it
