Leaking fuel filter drain

1766 Views 12 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  hamboners
I just changed the fuel filter the other day on my "99 F250, and now I am getting a dripping from the drain tube. I have tried several different suggestions to openinf and closing the valve, and there is no change. After about 1 minute of ru time the drip begins again.
I know I read somewhere to change the o rings in the valve, but can not find that info, and I am not sure how to change them.
Does the whole bowl have to be removed?
Anyone have any ideas?

That's what mine did. I did'nt have the tools, and did'nt know if you could change the o-rings. So I took it off, and soaked it in PB Blaster, and to this day, no leak. I do have a new one sitting in the glove box, just incase it ever starts again. Glad to see you got it fix'd. It can be a little aggrevating.
