Fuel leak help
I finally had an opportunity to pick up a 97 cclb powerstroke and I couldn't pass on it. When I picked it up the guy said that it leaked fuel because it sat for so long and was hardly ever driven. He said the long sitting caused some kind of algae to grow in the fuel bowl or lines and it caused the leak? It only drips a little bit and only after you shut it off after driving it, but with diesel approaching. $4 a gallon every drop counts haha.
1. Has anyone ever heard of this algae problem before?
2. Is there any kind of additive I can use to clear it out or do I need to replace the lines and fuel bowl and possibly even the tank?
3. Could this kill the trucks engine if untreated?
Thanks for the help!
