Re: Smell Diesel Fuel
[ QUOTE ]
I just developed a leak from somewhere. I noticed the smell of diesel was pretty strong. I can see a puddle of something (diesel) after taking off the fuel filter shroud and I look down behind the fuel filter and through all the wires on the engine block.
What are the likely culprits? The o-ring on the water separator? The turbo is leaking? Any ideas from any one who has been here? I have a 2000 PSD. My most recent change was switching to the new air filter system.

No fuel goes near the turbo. This puddle below the fuel filter leads me to think your fuel drain value is leaking. Clean everything up, than use a small mirror to trace this leak with engine running.
