leaking diesel

Alright doing my routine maintenance of changing out the fuel filters my fuel filter located under the hood started leaking after replacing the old filter. I FINALLY FIXED that problem to move on to the next problem. My truck is now leaking diesel from somewhere can not tell where. I read somewhere else that when the fuel pump is going out diesel will start leaking from a wheep hole in the fuel pump. Is this true any other idea???????

The fuel pump is mounted inside the HFCM or filter houseing on the frame rail under drivers door, no weep hole. Is leak on top of engine?

Well i am pretty sure it is cant really tell though. It is just a slow drip on the pavement and theres diesel on my fender and all on the side of my truck. I also examined the filter bowl up top and it didnt seem like it was leaking from anywhere on that.

Open the hood and turn on key check the fuel lines on the drives side of engine and the 2 short hoses that go down to the HFCM for leaks.

I appreciate the advice it was an easy fix once I identified the problem. I examined fuel filter cap and discovered that diesel was slowly seaping out between the cap and the filter bowl.
