Whats Up ? Power Stroke Leaking Fuel

Love my '95 Power Stroke, but this a.m. I cranked it up and while it was warming up I smelled fuel, lots of it. It was pouring out the bottom of the truck. Turned it off, raised the hood and there was fuel pooled up on top of the motor. What happened? Any ideas will be helpful and appreciated.

Sounds as though your fuel filter housing is leaking , or possibly your drain valve(yellow lever) o-rings are leaking. but for a more powerstroke question go here https://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/forum170/

one more thing if you do change it change the lines going in and out of the pump they are cheap and you will be better off in the long run.

Manual fuel pump? What the hell is that? You mean mechanical fuel pump?

No you are wrong!!!! The last year for a mechanical injector pump you could "turn up" was 94.

And 94-97 had mechanical engine driven fuel pumps. 99-09 have electric frame mounted fuel pumps

my truck is a 97 and the only reason i say that is cause they gave me a mechanical pump when i went to replace mine and it was the wrong one i had to specify manual fuel pump at the auto parts store thats the only reason i say that. i understand what you are saying its a engine driven pump and it has no electronics going to it

If they gave you a injector pump instead of a fuel pump they are *** holes. The injector pump is approx 1500 while the fuel pump is 150...there is a big difference
