I'm trying ti figure out why my fuel line is leaking. It's the line that connects to the motor. It's leaking where it connects to the motor. Is there like an "O"ring that is bad or something? I just had the transmission rebuilt and had to take it back like 3 times. It just kept messing up. I had it rebuilt twice. Could that have had something to do with causing the fuel lines to leak? Or, is my fuel pump going out? Someone please help me!

Re: 91 Chrysler New Yorker-Fuel Line leaking
It is conceivable that the line was damaged physically during the removal and reinstallation of the tranny.
I'd check with your local Better Business Bureau to find a repair shop with a good record before having it looked at.

There is only one gas line. It will come from the gas tank to the engine compartment, connect to a filter. Another fuel line will leave the filter and go into the engine.
It is extremely dangerous to work with spilling gas. Do not try to start the vehicle as the electronics and spilling gas could easily start a fire and explosion. You need to trace the gas line and determine where it is leaking to fix it.
might be the RETURN line back to tank, most overlooked fuel line in the world, sends unburnt fuel & FUMES back to tank & or engine, recycled fuel. these lines rust, rot, subject to salt corrosion, etc., OR, vapor leaks from the evaporativeemissions control system (charcoal canister filter clogged) check condition of all hoses (vacuum) and fuel ...... or your main fuel line is leaking you just can't see it without a complete, thorough inspection !!!!! is fuel fliter leaking @ filter? connections ......
first locate approx area of leak, wet spot, smell. fuel lines run from top of tank in rear of vehicle to the front usually alomg the inside frame rail on drivers side and up into engine compartment (under the hood) to the back of the motor. it runs into fuel rail assy where the injectors are passing through a fuel regulator first. fuel line will have a valve similar to that on a bicycle or car tire and should have a tag on it, sometimes its on the fuel rail. trace the fuel line tu the fuel tank or from the tank to engine compartment while its running, in park with emergency/parking brake on to accurately locate leak but be careful for fuel that may be spraying. i recomend safety glasses and a flashlight. most common leaks are due to worn/bad seals in the "quick connect" connections or a crack it the line itself.
If you are getting leaks in the rubber hoses that connect to the fuel rails in the engine compartment, you need to replace the hoses. The collars on the vehicle end that are crimped on can be removed by carefully using a hack-saw to split them. Cut just deep enough to split the collar, otherwise, the tube will get damaged. Then get some rubber hose that is rated for high pressure fuel. (your local parts store should be able to help you with this.) Make sure the hose is pushed onto the tubes as far as they will go then use screw clamps to secure the hoses on both ends.
The fuel pump for this car is electric and is located inside the fuel tank, so you have a leaking fuel line, when the pump is running you have a leak, when the engine is shut off the pressure goes away and no leak.
