-Is this a possible fix?
-Is it located on the passenger side back of the tire assembly, just above the alternator?
-The fuel regulator has a quick disconnect fuel line, how difficult is it to remove this line with out breaking it?
also looking for a pdf service manual
thanks in advance everyone
The pulsation damper at the end of the fuel rail is usually what causes the fuel odor. It is difficult to disconnect the fuel line, but not impossible. As far as a service manual, Kia provides online service manuals for the US models at http://www.kiatechinfo.com
