Smell raw diesel on 2005 Chevy. Can't see where leak is coming from. See fuel on starter on passenger side. Don't see any fuel around injectors or on top of engine. Where should I look?

Look your fuel line over. Start where you see the fuel. If you are going to continue to drive the affected truck get a fire extinguisher. The kind rated to put out fuel fires.


Agree with Bmark,check lines,and where filter is,if you don,t see it up top of motor,it has to be a line leaking.
