If you see the leak when you start the vehicle then you know where the leak originates from. You need to address the leak and find the solution to stop the leak. The leak does not go away. The extra heat just evaporates the fuel faster than it is leaking. This may make you think it stops when actually it has not.

I have put a reconditioned carby on my eh holden it wont start cold with out pourig a small amount of fuel down the throughtof the carby onece running it starts each time perfect sit over night no go


fix the choke to work properly for starters next if you still have the original cast iron manifold then get the butterfly in the exhaust to work as well. It heats up the inlet manifold which helps to vaporise the fuel

Why is there oil leaking on my 2001 kia sportage?


One of your many engine gaskets has failed and started leaking. If it is leaking more than a very small amount, you"ll have to replace the gasket. Very small leaks can sometimes be cured with some aftermarket stop-leak stuff. Make sure it's for an oil leak.

Have a gas smell near top of motor-is there a gas line from fuel pump to fuel injection


Yes there is a line from the pumt to the injectors....and also a return line. It is unlikey to leak a small amount from this, as any leaks there are under pressure and spill massive amounts...Look around for smaller leaks, often in fuel vapor recovery system...Be sure gas cap is correct one and installed correctly.

Gas smell when starting and small dripage when back up from under engine


It sounds like the return fuel line is leaking. There are two fuel line and one is the high pressure line which goes to the fuel pressure regulator then to the fuel rails. There is then a return line from the fuel rail to the gas tank.
With the amount of fuel leak, it's going to be the return line since it's not that bad compared to the high pressure side. Follow the fuel lines from the drivers side around the steering shaft to the engine. The high side and low side (return) run side by side and you should see it leaking when the engine is running.
Good luck and hope this helps.

Idle s 2300rpm when cold, then revs between 1500-2000, while..


maybe vacuum leak or intake manifold leak. sounds like components are doing there job adjusting to air intake, matching the amount of air brought in with the amount of fuel that it would demand to produce correct emmission quality. check this out. you can use carb cleaner to spray around your throttlebody and intake manifold and if the engine idle fluxuates you have a leak.
