Find another mechanic. Lean codes. Could be vacuum leaks(lines or plenum) or exhaust leaks near the O2 sensors.

Will defective vaccum hoses on front axle effect the way the engine runs on a 2000 kia sportage?


Vacuum leaks work like this. A small hose breaks, you don't notice a engine problem, but the gas mileage goes down a bit. As the leak progresses, mileage goes down more. A large leak you notice the engine runs rough at idle. Combine this with clogged air, fuel filters and clogged catalytic converters and it will start killing the engine at stops and eventually go down the road. But to answer your question, No the line going to the diff, wont affect the engine performance. Because the PCM will compensate for the small leak. More fuel.

car quit when you accelerate,could have stopped up fuel filter or weak fuel pump, check fuel pressure with new fuel filter should be 40 - 47 psi.if fuel okay could have massive intake leak,check for air leak at the air intake duct if air intact duct goes to air filter is open that will cause intake leak or intake manifold gasket leaking or ignition timing off timing chain could jump time for high mileage engine.

That sounds like the fuel rail the top of the injectors have O-rings that seals the fuel rail were the injector goes in it if one has gone bad it will leak fuel from around the injector. Hope this helped.

Fuel leaking at tank when motor is running, stops when engine is off 1992 Honda Accord


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.

Gas leaking from a silver metal tube in engine next to throttle.


You need to have this repaired immediately. It's not too expensive, just an o-ring at the end that goes into the fuel rail. It is very dangerous to have fuel leaking in the engine compartment, don't delay.

Extreme fuel smell coming from engine, no leaks underneathe the 2002 Ford Taurus. What could be leaking. Already replaced vapor canister.


if you can not find a fuel leak under hood, then check for a bad fuel pressure regulator. if it goes bad it will emit gas fumes under hood. is the check engine light on!! if so it may be the regulator or another leak. also check the evap system, could be a bad or broken hose ( underhood ). check all fuel lines from front to back.

Why does my 1995 Ford Ranger 2.3l 5spd backfire and sputter in AM (Not a cold Temp)? 217,000 miles. I maintain oil and proper maintenance. Burns some oil. After I give it some gas it eventually idles...


Hello and welcome to Fixya.com
have you run a fuel pressure leak down test? if not you need to do this test, borrow or buy a fuel pressure test gage, they are about $12 at Kragen, the fuel pressure test port is on the top of the engine in the fuel rail that goes over the injectors, looks like a tire valve, hook up the gage and verify you have no leaks, then start the engine and turn if off while watching the fuel pressure, the pressure should not bleed down by more than 5 pounds after engine stops running, if it quickly looses pressure u will need to replace the fuel pump, this is called a leak down test, fuel pressure leak down is the #1 cause of hard starting rough running cold, other things cause it as well like a loose timing belt and worn out plugs and dirty fuel injectors, and worn engine parts, but start with the leak down and then go from there.

Lately my dodge 1997 intrepid takes a few turns of the key to start. It never had that problem before.


if i recall the 3.5l engine had the habit of leaking fuel at front top of engine. it is a steel pipe that goes from one fuel rail to the other, the orings leak. just give it a little push down while running and if orings are bad it will spray fuel [stand to the side when doing this]
also the plastic fuel rails were known for cracking.
both of these concerns were recalled on some model years call local dealer to see if yours is covered. the 3.3l had a fuel rail recall as well.
reason i mentioned these is if there is a leak the gas will drain back to tank or slowly leak out so when you try to start engine it will crank longer because fuel pressure will have to build back up

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.
