fuel leak leaking down starter

Well I noticed I had a fuel leak, its leaking down the starter. I ordered an oring kit. Now even with all new o rings I'm still leaking fuel. I also replaced the 4 hoses.

So what is another common leak point in the valley of death.

Check where the fuel line goes in the back of the head. There are square cut rubber o-rings in those fittings that sometimes leak.

x2^ on what these guys said. Check the rear of the pump itself where the lines come out and the banjo bolt threads in. Also, check the drain valve on the fuel bowl, its possible it got turned partially to the drain position.

^ x2 ^ on the pump. It has a weep hole directly underneath the passenger side of the pump body. Extremely hard to see leaking real time. Another common fuel leak is at the fuel filter restriction sensor, right where the wire plugs into the sensor as shown here ...

Does anything need to be removed to acces these.

I plan on checking these first since everything is put back together already.

Best part of deer season ending, is that upland game starts

No, nothing has to be removed, your just looking for fuel around the fittings.

Well its my fuel pump that is bad everything else looks good.

Bummer part is my truck is a Cali model with the darn fuel dampner. Anyways I found a great thread on FTE, informing me I dont have to pull the turbo to get at this mess.

http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/61...placement.html

^^ If anyone else is intrested.

So I have a new fuel pump and new washers for the banjo bolt. Am I missing anything else.


Wish me luck Im about to loosen fuel lines and get at the Dampner then the Banjo bolt.

Goal is to get the pump out tonight!


I have tonight and tomorrow night to handle this. Come Saturday morning I need to be hunting pheasants. And Im not craming in my lil Colorado again. UGH!

I thought I read somewhere the fuel dampner does something with the split shot injectors. Not sure though.

Lol looks like I have to cut a wrench down to get at these fuel lines. And move the downpipe back.

Is there a difference between regular pumps?
Because looking at the pump it appears there something threading into the back of the pump. And that is where the dampner goes. Suggesting its that peice inbetween the banjo bolt and pump that differs between cali and federal trucks

This is so un real

what a horrid design I can not for the life of me get this banjo bolt back in. there

I mean is this why people install E fuel.

This is definitely worth 1k not to ever do again.

Damn California trucks
