The Dispenser supply usually flows through the bottom, inside toward the back to cool the water. If the puddle is near the back. refrigerator section it's probably this water cooling arrangement. Usually. a number of the tubing loops near the back bottom edge. Connections here or tubing itself may leak. It may also be an undetected leak from the Filter housing or the filter is not properly seated or possible filter housing connections. I have had good success with paper towel detection method. Wrap
or paste, tape towel to suspect leak locations. They will soon appear and point to the apparent leak.
Hello. The fuel filter is located underneath the car, directly between the back seat doors; however, if you are jacking-up your car, it is much easier to reach it by using the drivers side.
Once you have the car leveraged, you will notice a cover/panel (note: the older the model, the more it will look like it is part of the car) with at lease two (2) screws (+/- 10/11 MM) holding the cover/panel in its place.
After you have removed the two (2) screws, the cover/panel will hang down - underneath is fuel filter and fuel pump and you will need a 14 MM open-ended wrench to remove the filter.
When removing, be cautious, the filter will have excess gas left in it and it will spill. Regards, Joe. AND please rate my answer. Thank you!
This is directed to the secound part of your question.I don't know much about transmissions but i'am sure someone on this site does. Might want to look on the back side of intake to see if there is any signs of the intake gasget leaking. The only other place it could come from is a freeze plug or head gasget but i have never known them to leak from there but its posible. If you got a puddle right under the hole on the inspection cover for flywheel witch is red in color it would be the front pump seal in trans.
Hello, you may have a small drip from the pump or a small drip from the hose that goes from the pump to the rear of the cabinet. To make sure you will have to run the unit with the cabinet removed. A local service tech can remove the cabinet quicklyand isolate the leak.
This should be repairable from the top. Pull out the rear seat cushion and remove the two black round access covers to access the fuel pump covers. The seals for these covers tend to leak and if they are leaking, you will see it when the covers are off.
