Most likely a fuel leak under the hood.

fuel leak on top of what type of engine, gas or diesel?

usually there is a fuel leak internally however it can also be an air leak

If your dodge diesel runs rough at 2100 RPM it is probably starved for fuel. Have the fuels filters changed and / look for an air leak in the fuel system. My 1996 had rusted fuel lines on the top of the fuel tank. cost about $600. Canadian to repair.

You've got a leak in your fuel injection system.

You can try to repair a small leak in a diesel fuel tank without taking off and welding by using specially made putty.

I've been trying to find that leak myself. I found that 2 fuel lines with loose hose clamps at the filter cannister, and also found a loose fuel filer. It is still leaking from bottom of cannister, I'll be removing it this weekend and fixing or replacing the fuel filter cannister.

The diesel leak off is for getting air out of the system should you run out of fuel. It is very difficult to get the diesel engine restarted after running out of fuel as compared to a gasoline engine which is relatively easy. Once you have run your diesel out of fuel, the injectors must be primed for you to have even a chance of getting restarted. So, VW/ Mercedes owners, keep that tank about a quarter.

I suppose if you had a leaky injector it could.

Your fuel system might have a leak if the strong smell is similar to the smell of refuelling. Or the exhaust might have a leak allowing fumes to get in the cab with you. Diesel fuel has a strong oder if burnt in a rich mixture an in under hard acceleration.

the return fuel line is more than likely leaking

The first thing to look for would be an exhaust leak. Check for a fuel leak on the top of the engine.

A bad fuel pump will cause the fuel not to flow into the fuel pump. Another cause can be a leak in the fuel line.

you can buy a fuel tank puncture kit. you need to drain the fuel tank so it can be completely dried. everything u need to fix the leak is in this kit. the kit costs about $10,but is well worth it, and if you follow instructions on the packet it works. i fixed leak in f350 diesel tank with same kit about 3 years ago and have not had a problem since

YES they do and all have this fault .you need go to diesel specicalty and skim and new gaskets

It is a vapor leak in the fuel system. Starting in 1996 vehicles check for leaks down to .020 inch.

No, it doesn't. Some vehicles though may have parts of the fuel system so located that a leak can cause diesel to enter the clutch housing anyhow, basically by the fuel dribbling down the side and back of the engine.

You have a low side fuel system leak. Normal causes are the o-rings on the lines and fittings at the fuel filter.

fuel press. regulators often leak because the seals dry out. it is easy to replace the regulator and it should come with new seals.

Restricted fuel filter, air filter caused by lack of maintenance. Internal or external fuel leaks. Check for an external leak in the valley of the engine, the cam driven fuel pump is in the center of the engine and has a tendency to leak. A internal leak would be a cracked head, check the coolant and oil for fuel contamination.

Yes, you get carbon monoxide poisoning from a diesel exhaust leak from the engine.

Where is the leak from? The fuel filler? The fuel tank? A fuel line? Does the leak occur only when the engine is running? Does the leak only occur when the vehicle is parked on an inclined surface?

yes if there is hole in the diesel tank in motor
