Fuel heater element for Dodge Cummins 1994-1998 12 Valve. This is the heating element in the pre-filter/heater that is located just in front of the lift pump. When the thermostat fails and sticks on, this heating element overheats and warps causing a leak in the fuel system.
If your heater, wires or connectors are melted you will need to replace the thermostat/switchas well. This senses the temp of the fuel and controls the heater. If the switch stays on it causes the heater to overheat and melts down.
