    TO GET THE LINES APART.

I had exactly the same problem after I changed the fuel filter. Tried new clamps and tightening them etc. Nothing worked until I purchased a foot long hose from a auto store for couple bucks and replaced the both ends with the new hoses. Old hose hardens over time and it doesn't seal well after it has been reused.

1993 dodge dinesty 3.4 fuel rail leaks how can i repair


If the metal fuel rail itself has a leak, it should be replaced. If it is leaking by an injector, the O-rings on the injectors need to be checked and probably replaced. If a fuel line to the rail is leaking, that will have to be repaired. There will be two fuel lines at the rail, the feed line in from the gas tank, and a return line from the rail back to the tank. If there is a pressure regulator on the fuel rail (it will have a short vacuum line hose to it), the regulator may also have an o-ring to keep from leaking where it mounts.

2002 Dodge Grand Caravan leaking fluid


Since the Caravan is front wheel drive, there would be no transmission lines running to the rear of the vehicle. This reduces the possibilities to either a fuel leak, or a brake line. If you smell the fluid you should be able to tell immediately if it were gasoline. This would be a dangerous thing. Fuel leaks must be isolated and repaired quickly to avoid risk of fire. If it were brake fluid, and the leak were stead, you should, if you inspect the brake master cylinder reservoir, a lower level of fluid than normal, possibly even a total loss of fluid in the rear chamber. If so, then the brake line to the rear has probably ruptured from age/corrosion. It must be repaired or replaced.

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.

1988 Dodge caravan SE. Metal fuel line coming from gas tank to the drivers side rear. what does it connect to? Not talking about the fuel line going to the fuel filter. It fell of and cant find what it...


Sounds like you have a broken fuel return line. The high pressure line goes through the filter and to the injection system, and the unused fuel is returned through the pressure regulator back to the fuel tank.

Brake fluding leaking on rear passenger


Most brake fluid leaks, especially from vehicles of this age are caused from rusted through lines. Take a look under the car and look at the line on the axle, you will likely find a wet spot. If you can't locate the leak easily, fill the brake reservior and have someone pump the brakes to find the source. Another common source of leaks are wheel cylinders. If this is the case you will notice brake fluid on the bottom of the drum backing plate. You can remove the brake drums to confirm this.

I have a 1991 grand caravan the right front half shaft keeps breaking i changed the shaft,caliper,rubber brake line,metal brake line.


Two things, if you get a vibration when you are decelerating( an indication of shaft problems) you may need to replace your 3 motor mounts. But more important, most aftermarket rebuilt shafts are junk. Buy only new or Mopar rebuilt axle shafts. Anything other than Mopar new shafts or Mopar rebuilt shafts(sometimes Mopar rebuilt can be bad too) and you are pretty much guarantying that you will be replacing the shaft again with in 6 months. I own a 1993 Voyager and have replaced a dozen axles. The problem stopped with the OEM parts. Forget about the lifetime warranty offered with auto store axles, unless you enjoy replacing axles.

1994 buick roadmaster, oil leaking out of right rear axle, checked brake fluid is full, could it be differential oil leak @ end of axle??


If what you see leaking is very oily and does not evaporate, likely it is an axle seal. If there are no leaks in the brake system, that's the only thing back there that can leak. If the axle bearing is going away, it can damage the seal so make sure you look for small shiny metal flakes behind the seal when you replace it or you will be doing the job again very soon. Can't remember...that IS rear wheel drive right?

Gas tank leak


REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
Always ground yourself to the vehicle's chassis to prevent sparks while working on or around the fuel tank.

  2. Remove the access panel under the rear seat or in the luggage compartment.
  3. Disconnect the gauge sending unit wiring and hoses.
  4. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  5. Drain the fuel tank into an approved container.
  6. On Cabriolet models, remove the right rear inner fender and disconnect the breather hose from the filler. Remove, but do not disconnect the gravity valve.
  7. Detach the fuel pump bracket from the body.
  8. Lower the pump enough to disconnect the fuel hoses from the tank.
  9. On Cabriolet models, the rear axle must be dropped out of the way as follows:
    1. Disconnect the brake hydraulic hoses at both sides of the rear axle.
    2. Detach the rear axle from the body on both sides and let it hang on the parking brake cables.
  10. Unhook the muffler supports and pull the large hose from the filler neck.
  11. Support the tank, loosen the straps and carefully lower the tank out of the vehicle.
To install:
  1. If a new tank is being installed, glue new foam strips to the tank in the same location as the old ones.
