Fuel leak factory cannister

Recommended Posts

Started noticing fuel dripping from the fuel filter. Looks like it is coming from in between the top of the cannister and the side. I have taken the top of the cannister off the block, looked for cracks and debris. Then I put a new filter on and it is still leaking. I don't know if the manufacturer is putting in smaller o-rings or what. Any suggestions?If I can't figure this out, looks like I will be putting a new filter setup on the truck and removing the factory cannister.

Posted ImageMine leaked from the fuel heater wires on top of the canister right after I got my truck. I took it apart and put some black silicone on the o ring and it hasn't leaked a drop in 5 years. If your housing is crack I just so happen to have removed mine Saturday.

Ryan, that looks like mine, After thinking it over, I don't want to go thru this process again. I am going to remove the whole filter assembly and put in a separate fuel filter system. Thanks for the help!
