Leaking Fuel

Recommended Posts

Well, the other day I went and replaced my rear tires to get rid of this darn Defect. After when the guy did the Wheel Alignment he said "you got something leaking here"..

Fix one problem, another one comes along. Anyways I'm leaking fuel from the front of the car. Couldnt quiet see exactly the spot. Does any one know where I can have this looked at and how much does a new fuel line cost?

Okay my guess would be possbilly just under the fuel filter. The bottom hose has alot of pressure and the rubber hose that hoes over the dimple of the fuel filter wears and eventually gets thin then forms a bubble. I noticed it when i was changing my fuel filter a little while ago. As far as i could see is u have a rubber hose that goes too and from the filter ones that goes to the injecters etc (top) and the bottom hoes that works its way along the car which is metal for most of the way i believe the rubber hose from the filter (bottom) is about 15cm in lenght u can use normal fuel line hoses to replace it the facotry nissan one is molded abit for a specific size but that does not matter. Fuel line hoses dont cost much, under $5-$10 a meter something like that.

This is one situation which i reckon it could be comming from but you have to isolate where it is exactly. Depends how much is leaking it may not be the best idea to run the cars much (or at all). My 2 Cents. Cheers Rob

There might be some other places where fuel might leak from but not 100% the above idea is something i had stumbled on before.
