Fuel leak at filter.. Cheap and easy fix's anyone??
Recently I've started smelling fuel from the rear of my car, I looked under and determined it was leaking from the filter area about 2 weeks ago. Didn't appear to be serious and isnt so I left it till I had time.
So I finally got back to it, it is leaking from the fitting on the side with the single port (in?) on the filter thats located closest to the take of the car.
I'm going to replace the filter either way.... I'm already there so why not. But any ideas how to stop that fitting from leaking? Or can I just place the line straight to the filter and hose clamp it? This fitting I'm refering to clips onto the fuel filter and connects the fuel line, it has two buttons (one on each side) to release and to hold the line onto the filter. I have checked with my local parts guy and its a Kia only part and well.... I'm avoiding them since they wanted to charge me $23 of a door lock rod clip.... if you've seen that clip it should be like .50 cents max.
Also when you remove that line is it normal for it to be preasured when the cars not running?? I just had a gas shower! Hahaha
