New to the forum here, best thing I've found to go with my beloved '97 HD F-250. Issue: took truck to local stealer with minor fuel leak. Figured it could be one of 3 scenarios. least $$, loose clamp/hose. Next, bad o-rings on fuel/water drain vavle. BTW, after spending an hour searching and reading here, I figured that was most common. Most $$$$, fuel pump, only because I've heard that they will "weep" like a water pump before going out. Question: If it is true they will weep,where do they wet? I had wet fuel pretty much front to back in the top valley of the motor. Of course stealer calls me and says it's the fuel pump. $630.00 later, I drive it 4-5 miles home, still smell diesel pop the hood and clearly the top valley has been all nicely degreased and a fresh new pool of diesel sits in front of the fuel pump near the fuel filter housing. Call stealer really P.O.ed now, take it back in only to be told "nothing wrong, just residual fuel" I say B.S., any thoughts and THANK-YOU, sorry for the rant, I never believed it was the fuel pump in the first place.
