    I fired up the truck this morning (99 F250 7.3L) and i noticed it was dripping. Traced it back and the bleeder line for the pressure relief valve if leaking i wiggled it back and forth but cant get it to stop. I called My mechanic and he said this is a common problem and that he has already done 6 this year. Is this something i can replace my self or should i leave it to him. He ordered me the part today and said he would have it tomorrow morning and could get it in right away. Any suggestions should i leave it to him of should i do it my self, also any idea on the cost. let me know thanks.

    are you sure its not the o-rings at the fuel bowl there the dain is ? thats the most common fuel leak that there is its a every easy fix just get the o-rings then bleed off fuel pressure repair and then fire her up check for leaks . i'd thorw a filter in if havn't changed it along time
