Question Fuel leak very bad!!! 95 f350

In the valley of the engine it fills up with fuel and then drips constantly on to the road.I just noticed it and I am not sure how to go about it It is coming out from around the fuel filter area. I am not sure if it is the pump there? But, I cant see exactly where? I have seen It once before on someone else's rig, but I dont recall the remedy.Do I have to remove the turbo? What could be leaking? I am really not sure what to do.

A friend of mine had a prob. like that on a 99. I would guess that it's leaking where you can drain the water from the fuel by the filter. I'm not sure if you have that on a 95 but there was one on the 99. Anyway if that's all it is it's a simple fix and you replace a part that costs about 55.00 from ford. Takes a torqs head screwdriver and 4 screws. However I don't have a 95 and don't know if it's the same thing. So one of the smarter techs will prob. give you better advice. Hang in there its prob. a simple fix.

Have you opened the valve to drain the filter recently? I did that after a "Water in Fuel" light and had a portion of the heater element wedge into the valve, causing a leak. Had to have the whole assembly rebuilt.

Re: leak

If it is your fuel pump, you can change it without removing the turbo. It takes some patience and time. There are some threads on here that discuss the changing of this type of pump. I had to change mine and it wasn't too bad. If I fine the thread I'll post the link.

It sounds like a Fuel Pump...they have a weep hole in the bottom of them and when the diaphram goes bad it leaks out the weep hole. The water drain usually drains ALOT of fuel directly under the engine and it usually drains down on your steering linkage. The Fuel pump leaks out the back and drips down on the tranny. 99 didn't have the lift pump in the valley. Ford moved it to the frame rail and made it electric instead of mechanical. Check the water drain though...its a yellow tab on the side of the Fuel Filter bowl...to close it it should be pointing straight forward or slightly to the driver side. if it is slightly toward the passenger side of the truck it is open.

its possible the vaccum switch for the fuel filter light is leaking. 95...its on the back side of the fuel bowl, on the bottom. Need a mirror to see it. I may have my years mixed up...it was on the fuel regulator in 96/97.

Clean everything around the fuel bowl real good, start the truck, and start looking.
