    Default Fuel Filter Leak ;( Help!

    Welcome.Sorry for my english but i;m from Poland I have a problem with the fuel filter z19DT. I unfortunately leaked. It looks like that from the place of the large nut on top of the fuel filter. In addition, when the car is cold for a long time before firing;/ turns out there is a gasket that I can change? I have one question for anyone who knows places to wear a fuel valve is not stepping back? The wire on top of the filter or the outgoing side of the filter?

    Is the leak between the cup and the top of the filter? The rubber between can twist a litle if the gasget is dry when the top is placed back on after a filter change. Try take of the top, set a tiny amount of grease on the rubber gasget and turn it back on.

    The filter rubber should be wet with Diesel before you put it on and torque up the lid.

    Defo leaking from the top of the black canister?

    I think you have to remove it - inspect, replace the filter with new seal and see how you go. CHeck the canister for cracks and make sure the two fuel lines are cliped in correctly.
