Hello, welcome and thanks for asking your question. My name is*****'m a Certified Auto Technician with 28+ years experience. I will do my best to assist you. please keep in mind that I may need to ask questions of you before I can answer. When you reply please feel free to add as much detailed information as possible pertaining to your concern.

Did you verify that the fluid was in fact Diesel Fuel? It is more common for a coolant to be leaking from the passenger side. Did you look around the injection pump?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
It was diesel fuel, I know the difference. it leaked for only about 60 seconds so I was not able to trace back the leak. We have used the van for two and not seen anymore leakage. I am very familiar with 06 sprinter vans but I have not come across this and was wondering if anyone has. Where is the injector pump located?
Dodge Mechanic: Robert R, ASE Certified Master replied 2 years ago

The injection pump is located at the very front of the engine just above the waterpump/fan pulley. The fuel inlet is on the driver side center area. Look closely at the injection pump for signs of possible leakage at one of the 3 "Cylinder heads". Sometimes these can leak. Normally when leakage occurs there it results in a no start situation and a very large leak in front of the engine. The fuel quantity valve is located on the right side of the injection pump with a 2 way electrical connector. Look closely at this valve for signs of leakage.

If you are not able to find any leaks, all I can recommend is to continue to drive it and just keep an eye every day for possible leakage in the same area, If it leaks again, check carefully for the source while it is still wet with fuel, if you can inspect it while it is leaking or very shortly after, you should be able to find the source..

Keep me posted and let me know if you have any additional questions...

Thank you,

Robert

I have a 2007 Dodge Ram 15 4 door 2WD V8 Pickup that has an
Hello. I have a 2007 Dodge Ram 15 4 door 2WD V8 Pickup that has an engine light on that keeps giving me different code readings. I have almost 198000 miles on the vehicle which drives like a champ. It has a Lifetime power-train warranty on it and I just had it inspected for its every 5 year required inspection on December 23rd. Here is the issue. Last year the engine light came on in December of 2017. The code said that I need a new ERG valve. Right before inspection the light went off. I got inspected and the tech said that the engine light came on, but it was the gas cap. He did the test again and the gas cap passed. I got my inspection approved without the ERG violation. This year I am trying to get my truck inspected, but the check engine light is still on since January of last year. I had the codes defined and the feedback read out came out to be a faulty idle sensor. I do not have have any issues with the idle acceleration sensor at this time. Four years ago I did have an issue with this sensor, but the check engine light never came on. I reached out to you guys, followed your advise and no issues with the truck jerking after replacing the sensor. How can I find out the true problem(s) and fix them? I must get my state inspection before I get pulled over. Thank you in advance. … read more
