Easiest way is just wrap a rag around or sometimes there is a bleeder like a tire has on the fuel rail. Now the only things that can be leaking is the Fuel Rail or The Injectors Orings or the Fuel Supply Line.
Hope this helps

Facing front of 7.3 diesel, fuel is leaking at right front fuel injector,,,looks like the banjo fitting,,,what seals this fitting as it can be twisted by hand??


You'll need to pick up an injector install kit for around $40. There are two sizes depending on the size fuel line that runs between your injectors so don't open the bag the kit comes in, until you compare the contents of the kit with whats on your motor. The kit will have new fuel line, clamps, plastic caps and o-rings. Once you remove the fuel line from the pump and then the fuel line between injectors, you can pull the plastic caps off and then remove the old o-rings. Reverse this order to install the new kit.

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.

When you turn the key on excessive fuel flows into the air intake. its a 1989 6 cylinder 3.1 fuel injected


You could have either an injector that is stuck open or a fuel pressure regulator that has developed a leak. A leaky injector will usually only leak fuel into one cylinder as it is located just above the intake valve in the lower part of the intake while a leaky fuel pressure regulator will leak fuel into the front end of the intake manifold [behind the throttle plates] and the fuel will acuumulate throughout the upper intake plenum. When a fuel pressure regulator develops a leak the fuel that is escaping from it flows through the small 1/8" diameter plastic vacuum line which goes from the top of the regulator to the intake manifold. Even a trace of fuel in this line means the regulator is bad. I've seen both leak items leak but probably replace 10 regulators leak for every one injector. Good luck, hope you find your problem!

93 gmc jimmy 4.3 vortec has a flooding problem. I pulled the injectors from the motor and turned the key on and excessive amounts of fuel sprayed out. could that be caused by the spider?


The most likely 2 causes are leaking fuel pressure regulator on the side of the spider, or leaking fuel LINE going into or out of the spider. Both are reasonably common failures. a replacement spider would come with a new regulator but NOT a new line, so verify which is leaking before you order a spider up.

They do not fail that often anymore, not like 5 or 8 years ago when gasoline still had mtbe in it, the vortec unit is very dependable nowadays.

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.

Is the line leaking a metal line or "hose" line. You really should replace the line...USE FLARE NUT wrenches ONLY...!!!!!
A metal line can be spliced using copper line, a flare tool, compression flare fittings,etc.. A good mechanic will be able to help.
Any leaking fuel line should be replaced... ,, USE FLARE NUT wrenches ONLY...
