Phantom Fuel Leak

Recommended Posts

bmac

I have never had a fuel leak, but low and behold... When I power down, I get a drip off the bottom of the transmission.... I put a cup under it and collected a small amount, but enough to realize it sucks... Seems to be related to pressure in the lines as it stops after 10-minutes or so. Any ideas where to check for the most common fuel drips? :confused::confused:

Well I'm right behind you...:rolleyes2: I got home to the stink of fuel and open the hood... guess what I got #1 injector line loose and leaking... So double check your injector lines... But double check the banjo bolt on the back of the head which is a return line from the injectors. Common for the washer to give up and leak or the bolt to back out. Check the tee at the back of the engine I heard of it leaking now and then too.

I hope we didn't start an epidemic here. An H1N1 fuel leak! I don't have one yet on my truck!

I dont have a part # but it should be the same as the VP banjo blot. I picked mine up at a cummins dealer. Vulcan performance or DAP ought tohave them too. I just went thru the same leak and both the bolt on the head and the tee were leaking. I picked up the orings for the tee and the same dealer.
