Hi,
I would advise you to visit a local auto store and ask them to check parts out for you. Some fuel rail branches are sealed with an 'O' ring, which may or may not entail removing the fuel rail. I doubt if a new fuel rail would be needed, However, all manufacturers have different ideas on such a basic fitting.

Good luck.

My 1993 mercury tracer has a fuel leak


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.

Take it back and he will fix it, maybe a o-ring where the fuel line connects to the fuel rail or if he removed the injectors, then a o-ring maybe pinched, loose fuel line fitting. something minor, but dangerous, can catch fire real easy, I would have it towed to be safe.

Where is the fuel filter located on a 93 ford f150 xlt 5.8?


1990-94 ENGINES The filter, with these engines, is located amidships on the left frame rail. The filter should be changed either every 15,000 mi. (24,000 km), or 15 months, whichever comes first. The filter should also be changed whenever a fuel delivery module is replaced. CAUTION
To prevent siphoning of fuel from the tank when the filter is removed, raise and support the front end of the truck above the level of the tank.
  1. Relieve fuel system pressure. See Section 5. When working in hot weather, work quickly to complete filter replacement before the fuel pressure rebuilds!
  2. Unsnap the filter canister from the retaining clips.
  3. Disconnect the quick-connect couplings and remove the filter. WARNING
    Be careful to avoid kinking the fuel lines! To install:
  4. Noting the direction-of-flow arrow on the new filter, connect the fuel lines.
  5. Snap the filter into the clips.
  6. Turn the ignition switch to RUN several times - without starting the engine - and check for leaks.

Have a fuel leak under front of car


I would trace fuel lines from tank to fuel rail on motor. These are high pressure lines so do not try to quick-fix them. You will have to measure the lines and replace them if they are leaking. Unless the fuel is leaking from lines by fuel rail or by fuel filter.
