Q: Q: Fuel leaking from my engine.

asked by on

Fuel is leaking from my engine. What can cause this and what do I need to have fixed?

You must have a fuel line that is leaking. Diesel engines have very high fuel pressure. With the age of your vehicle it is very possible that you have a fuel line that has rusted through. This is a pretty common problem. I would enlist the help of a mechanic to locate and replace the leaking fuel line.
