The truck is loosing prime over night. When I pump the prime

Customer Question

The truck is loosing prime over night. When I pump the prime button on the fuel filter it will start and run fine but then at times over night it loses prime again. Could it be a leak at the fuel filter housing?
JA: What part of the car is the leak coming from? What color is the fluid?
Customer: It does not lose fluid it loses the fuel line pressure over night.
JA: What is the model/year of your Chevy?
Customer: 2005 Chevy duramax
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I was just looking for possibilities. I doubt I will attempt myself as I don't want to deal with the diesel spillage.
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: It seems to be worse when I am in the mountains. Higher altitude and colder temps.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Chevy Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.

There may be a leak in the system or a seal somewhere in the system causing you to lose prime.
