Fuel filter leaking

I have a leak on the "IN" side of the fuel filter on my S60. The filter was just replaced thinking that was the problem but its not. It looks like the little rubber L piece is where the problem resides. I assume the rubber hose running into it is a vaccuum hose of some sort with the steel line carrying the fuel. Is that piece easily replaceable or do you think there is another source of the problem.

The l piece you refer to is hooked to the fuel filter in some way. if you have a vacuum leak start the motor and listen for a hissing noise. then it's abit of troubleshooting to find the leak. be careful leaning into the engine compartment listening for the noise. lots of moving parts least of which is the electric fan that can start at any time.

Fuel leak center of vehicle

This is on an Econoline van right? If so then to my way of thinking it could be one or two things. Most likely is a leaking fuel line, or your fuel filter is not seated properly, or the fuel filter has developed a leak.
Oh thats three things, if your driving the car just start it in Park and try to locate the leak, if your lucky you may have to push the fuel filter into its connection till it is tight, eliminating the leak. Otherwise you may need to replace some fuel line which you may not want to do, shouldn't be to expensive to ask a mechanic.

Fuel leak at front of engine at filter cap

these vehicles are notorious for leaking fuel at the valve on the back side of the fuel filter housing and when when the vehicle runs the fuel will cover the back side of the housing and run around the top kinda making it look as if the top is leaking. the filter kit for this vehicle comes with a new seal for the cap so if you replace the valve and replace the filter you should have no more leaks.

How to change the fuel filter on my volvo s40 2004

Hello francecslouis: My name is Roger and I will answer your question. The fuel filter is located under the vehicle. Just in front of the right rear wheel. Raise the vehicle for clearance. Support the car in case the car should slip and fall. Look just in front of the axle and you will see a in-line filter. If you are not sure what it looks like purchase the new one and compare to the old one. Please rate the answer you received. this way we know you received the correct information. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

Gasoline smell fom volvo s60,no leaks noticed

In may be the fuel pump. Check recalls on your year make and model. My girlfriend has a 2004 S60 which had the same problem. I changed the fuel filter at first assuming that that was the problem but the smell persisted. I then took it to the volvo dealership and had them replace it for free. The only bad thing is that they may keep it for a few days to do it.
