Its our first diesel truck and we just got it a couple weeks ago

Customer reply replied 22 days ago
It was leaking diesel from the bottom of the fuel filter
Customer reply replied 22 days ago
We tried that but the valve in the bottom is not working when we push on top and releases air diesel comes out drom the bottom of the filter
Chevy Mechanic: Ivan Alvarez,

O​k then that will need to be replaced. If it leaks diesel the system will not prime up and will not start. There should not be any diesel leaking from the bottom. Just double check valve is tight. It screws on and of. Clock wise to tighten.

Is there a risk to keep in mind when changing a fuel filter by myself
Chevy Mechanic: Ivan Alvarez,
 replied 22 days ago

T​hat might be covered under some kind of warranty. I would double check with the place you got the truck at. No its just one sensor to unplug and it screws on and off.

Customer reply replied 22 days ago
When we put in the new filter do i need to fill it up with diesel
Chevy Mechanic: Ivan Alvarez,
 replied 22 days ago

You don't have to but it would speed up the priming process.
