Maybe the fuel filter or fuel line, whenever there is a leak on top of engine, thats where it drains to, so look at the top of the engine for the leak.

My 2005 Ford F 350 6.0 diesel starts quits runs quits. Goes a short distance stalls out hard to start again runs and stalls again. Also check engine light is on. Problem is getting worse after 3 days like...


Sounds like a compression leak from one or more injectors into the fuel system. I am guessing that you already changed both the frame and under hood fuel filters in the last 15,000 miles? Be sure the cap on the frame fuel filter is tight, any gap between the cap and housing can cause fuel to return to the tank instead of going filtered o the engine.

99 F-350 smoke from electrical connector in back of fuel filter


If you Cleaned up all of the Diesel There is still a Small amount of Oil from the Diesel on Anything that it Touched. Use some Spray DeGreaser on a Shop Wrag and let it dry Before you restart. Should be OK.
