Fuel Leak

Started noticing drips underneath my truck and thought it was a brake line so i went underneath to check and relized it was diesel fuel. one of the lines are leaking that are located directly above to torsion key on the driver side. I was wondering what the best way to fix this. do they sell oem fuel lines that i can use to replace or am i going to have to buy fuel line and do it my self. the lines ar partialy braided but cant tell where exactly its leaking from yet(braided part or metal fittings) all the other lines dont look to great either just wondering what my best options would be for this. any help would be appreciated thanks

sounds like you may need to just replace the line

Thanks for that, and yeah that what i think, i need to get back under there and see if there are some spots that i can disconnect it and get a new part or if im going to have to cut it and make my own line

Its rotted where it goes from braided to metal so i wont be able to do that, and it also is in the area where it has a couple 90s very close to one another

Okay so here is my gameplan, someone can chime in if they dont think this will work. i am going to cut the braided line and get a barbed fitting and get some braided fuel line the same size and connect it to where i cut it the i will go further down the fuel line to where it is straight and i can get to easily and cut a flare it and connect the tubeing to it with a hose clamp. this will only be a temproray fix until i get the time to replace all my fuel lines with OEM ones.

Don't know about an 04, but I just went through this on my 06. Dealer said it would be around $350.00 for them to do it and they were just using 3/8" neoprene hose and hose clamps. I went to Oreilly's and bought 20ft. for $20.00 and did it myself. I also spent about $5.00 on some new hose clamps. Works fine.

Sounds like the way i will be going then. did you replace large sections of the metal fuel line with the neoprene hose?

No, just replaced existing flex lines with new. The biodiesel was rotting the old flex lines. I didn't want to lose the CP3 or the injectors due to rotting fuel hose. I run nothing but ULSD now with an additive for lubrication.
