Fuel leaking from a sensor.... I think..... Help Please

Hey all, I got a old 96 powerstroke in the yard that leaking fuel from a sensor screwed in the side of the fuel filter housing. I think thats what it is... It looks just like the oil pressure sensor on my old 89 7.3 idi. Anyways i took it out an ran it down to the auto parts store and they couldnt find a thing in their dang computer!!! ( We need real parts people like we used to have!!!)

Could yall lead me in the right direction to finding this part???

Yeah, sounds like the water in fuel sensor. Gasket leaks around the wire connector. Pull it and carefully try a 1/4 pipe thread plug to cap it. If thats it, I'll give you the ford part # or cap the wire off and you could leave it off if you want :.

I just replaced a vacuum switch in the same area that was leaking fuel and fits the description. Part # is E8TZ - 9S283 - A. Not sure what it does?
