Re: Fuel leak under fuel bowl
After I realized that the heat shield over the fuel pump just snapped out of place, I could see the leak area much better. It is the fuel filter restriction sensor, leaking from the body of the sensor. Anyone know if this is only used for the warning light? In other words, can I remove it and replace it with a pipe plug for the moment?
I should have guessed it was this, since this sensor started intermittently turning the fuel filter warning light on (when I had a fresh fuel filter in) a few months ago.
It looks like my fuel pump hoses are getting a bit old and cracked. Are they just 5/16" fuel hose (presumably rated for diesel and for fuel injection pressures)? Where's the best place to get the hose?
