leaking banjo bolt indicate bigger problems?

I've been told by a few people that when the banjo bolt starts leaking it is time for a new pump. buddy of mine that is a ford tech said that ford designed it that way to kinda work as an indicator that the fuel pump is on the way out. mine started leaking a few days ago and when i looked at it, it was pretty loose and i tightened it back down. so is my buddy right? is it time for a new pump? i would like to go over to electric fuel but i dont have the funds considering that just last week I put in new warn hubs, gp's, gpr, uvcwh, tie rods, brakes, rotors, and wheel studs. i am moving to alaska in a few months and dont want to end up on the side of the road because i failed to diagnose a problem right. thanks again for the help guys!

Re: leaking banjo bolt indicate bigger problems?

depends really. i drove mine around for months with it leaking from the weephole on the pump. its only about 100 bucks if i recall. but i was told the same thing about it. leakage from weephole indicates a bad diaphram and possible pump failure. yadda yadda. you can get the parts and replace it "fairly" easily. luck!

mmm if it was the banjo that was loose and you did it up I would mop up any residual fuel and see if the fuel pump is leaking too. your buddy the mechanic I think is speaking about the weep hole on the pump if it leaks then yes you need a fuel pump. These are two separate issues.
