Fuel drain valve on fuel filter?


Recommended Posts

I've been leaking a small amount of diesel since my fuel system upgrade. Assumed it was one of the many connections on the filter or injection pump. Could find no sign of leaks there. Crawled under the vehicle. Nothing from the front. Diesel has been dripping off the front drive axle housing. Went behind the front axle and found a drip hanging off the filter drain hose. So I figured I'd open and close it. Started the truck and diesel came out the hose full force. Shut off truck. Opened and closed the valve a number of times. It feels sticky. But finally got it to shut off. Not sure yet if it fixed the slow leak or not. Is that drain valve serviceable? I see its got a screw cap on top. Should I get a whole new valve?

Did a google search and got lots of answers. Looks like I need a new unit or reseal kit.

Never had on leak but had one crack once, I broke it while working in the area and had to replace the valve. It was a Cummins part only from fleetgaurd, I had to order it through a local Cummins certified truck shop locally, Dodge couldn't get it seperately, would have had to buy the whole fuel canister from Dodge.
