Fuel leak under hood of my f150

Asked by Aug 08, 2017 at 03:16 PM about the 2001 Ford F-150 Lariat Crew Cab 4WD SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Last night I went and put $15 worth of gas in F-150
5.4 V8 that I just bought. Then I take the carwash
and washed it is running fine after I try to start it
again it would only crank but wouldn't start and I
smelled a strong smell of gas. Looking under the
hood when a friend try to start it gas is pouring out
from somewhere I was told it was from the fuel
relay does anyone know anything about this

Could be from the fuel pressure regulator, or the fuel rail, a leaky injector. Either way, you need to address the leak ASAP.
