Fuel smell

So i have had my truck for about 3 months now and recently started smelling fuel through the vents when my heat or a/c was on. Well today me and a buddy were looking underneath the truck and seen there was some fuel leaking on the back of the motor. Im new to the diesel scene, and he through out a couple things that could be wrong. But was wondering what anyones ideas might be and what it might cost. Thanks

Re: Fuel smell

Back side is most likely a set of banjo bolts maybe a cracked line
If you replace the banjos use 6.4 bolts and washers they seal up better

Buddy said it was the driver side head, we are going to get a small mirror and give it another look tomorrow to see if we can pinpoint it

Re: Fuel smell

I had bad fuel smell inside the cab as well that I just fixed. It was the flex part on the y-pipe. Seems to be a common issue on these trucks

Actually the return line is on the fuel bowl, the fuel supply line connects to the front of each cylinder head, there are no lines on the rear of a 6.0 cylinder head.

Re: Fuel smell

But there are plugs at the rear of the heads that seal off the fuel header b

Re: Fuel smell

Also check exhaust manifold as these did not come from factory with gaskets just close machine tolerance.
