the head of the fuel filter canister is leaking around the heating element and the dealer is the only avenue to get a kit to fix the problem.......$1200.00

well if you need a new fuel filter housing? change it with a fass or a airdog they are less then that price. www.doghousediesel.com tell him Pizzo sent you for your pricing and he will help you out with what ever you need
hope that helps Pizzo
