fuel leak ???

Big day today.... New 4" turbo back exhaust. Also changes oil and rotated tires. While I had my truck on the lift, I noticed what looked like an oil leak. After further inspection, found it to be fuel ( I think). On the drivers side front of the motor looking from underneath, there are 2 fuel lines. Looks like some kind of fittings in line. This is very near the oil pan on the motor. Are these the "quick disconect" fittings that people talk about? There is fuel on them, and it looks to be the source of the leak.

Opinions??? How to Fix???

You will need to follow the line from the fuel pump forward. More then likely this is your fuel lines. They normally suck air not leak back. This is where you complete the harpoon and hutch mods, install a pre-pump filter and be happier with a quieter and a lil more unffff in your truck.

I believe he is looking at the lines forward of the pump and there would be no air sucking there as one is the feed line from the pump under pressure and the other is the return line to the tank. Doesn't mean one couldn't leak though and the leak could be higher up and running down. May be fuel, could even be something else.

Yeah Tenn is most likely correct. The disconnect tool is a few bucks at the local parts house if you want to take it apart for any reason.
