United travelled to South London hoping to give themselves some breathing space at the foot of the Premier League table ahead of a tough trio of fixtures against top six sides.
The Whites were strengthened by the return of Kalvin Phillips, who made his first start since December after recovering from a hamstring injury.
But Leeds failed to create chances on the attack at Selhurst Park, while their opponents were similarly frustrated.
Phillips is pleased to take a point home to West Yorkshire despite Leeds' lacklustre display.
"It was a tough game," Phillips said.
"Personally I don't think the team played as well as what we could do but we defended well in the end.
"We didn't create much as a team but this was always going to be a tough place to come after the defeat that they had last week.
"Happy with the point, not really happy with the performance."
In a scrappy game with squandered chances aplenty, neither side could find a breakthrough - though Palace looked the more likely to snatch a winner as the game drew to a close.
Though a victory would have given a significant boost to United's survival hopes, Phillips is proud of his side's clean sheet - their second in as many games.
"We wanted to come here and win but first and foremost we wanted to not concede," Phillips.
"For us to do that against a good team with some exceptional players - I thought we did well.
"Like I said, disappointed with the performance and not getting the three points but the point is all that matters now."
