hey Im having a fuel leak. Im thinking that it may be coming from my fuel pump. What happens when the mechanical pumps fail. It still runs fine but has a small trickle leak Ive checked everything that is visible it ppears to be coming from in between the heads. Any help would be great. Its on a 98 7.3 van.

If your fuel pump fails the truck will not run at all. Check around and underneath the fuel filter housing, these are notorious for developing leaks.

fuel pump definitly can just quit ,but alot of times will leak awhile out of the weep hole before it goes , there is also a vacuum switch on the side of the filter housing that are bad to leak also , like rick said look god around the filter housing
