Question 2006 F250 Diesel smell in cab/leak need help

I have a 2006 f250 6.0 and there is a noticeable smell in the cab and it looks like there is a leak around the Turbo or near the fuel filter housing. Also, it sounds like the vacuum pump is running allot longer and louder than usual. Anybody have an idea of what might be leaking?
Thanks

I had the same complaint with mine a few months ago. The fuel filter housing (under hood) has a small bolt on fitting on the drivers side. Removed and replaced just the "dog bone" gasket and problem solved.....it's common on the 6.0

If it is diesel you smell there is a good chance it is the fuel regulator gasket. Just had mine replaced on same 2006 /6.0.

No I had the dealer replace it. It may be a DIY but I had other items for the dealer to do, maybe more mechanically inclined 2 cooler can tell you.

Thanks for all the help guys, I am picking up the part today and going to try to do it myself. The only other question I have is what is making the loud humming noise? I had someone tell me it is the vaccum pump responding to the leak that I have??? The sound gets louder and quiter on and off and definitely is the fuel pump or vacuum pump. Its the same sound that you hear when you cycle the key but it stays on and sometimes gets louder......
