If you mean it leaks where the hose connects to the quick disconnect, it's probably the O-ring inside the female connector. I think I remember that you can replace it with the same O-ring that is used for a seal on the oil and transmission drain plugs.
But, a warning!
It's a P.I.T.A. to get the old one out, and the new one in.
I little oil/WD-40 on the new O-ring helps install it.

Now, it you mean it's leaking where the quick disconnect attaches to the gas tank (you weren't really clear WHERE the leak was), the fitting has an O-ring seal where it screws into the tank:

2004 Chevy blazer, 4.3L ; Fuel leak: Where the two aluminum fuel lines go into the intake, the little black plastic sleeves are missing. What are those sleeves called and where can I buy them? Please help.


There are no sleeves..On these there are 2 connectors. In the connectors there are O rings/seals. what hold the connectors to the fuel rail are clips. To date, I can replace the O rings(just match them up) The connectors and the clips, good luck... I had to replace the fuel lines, from the manufacturer to fix them. Some times from the auto store, but not much. Usually wrong parts.

I have a fuel leak at the quick connect on top of the fuel tank under the rear seat. I have replaced the fuel line and it still leaks. There is a plastic piece on top of the tank, should that be replaced...


I solved a similar problem with a Nissan. Under rear seat is a plate. Remove plate and you find the plastic delivery and return pipes with clip on connectors. Ideally you buy and replace there connectors but here in Africa they were not available. I simply cut off the pipe as close to the connector as possible. Then heated the end in boiling water and pressed it over the connector male side. It cools and shrinks and never leaked since. If I had a hose clamp, I would have added that for extra security because the delivery pipe is under high pressure from the electric pump in the tank( fuel injection models) most Japanese cars have very similar configurations and this plan can generally be made to worl

Can you explain the steps to change the fuel filter on my 6.5 Diesel GMC Blazer.


Hi, to change the fuel filter, follow the steps below.

Disconnect the negative cable at the battery.

Loosen the fuel tank filler cap to relieve any fuel tank vapor pressure.

Wrap a shop towel around the Schrader valve on the fuel rail and remove the dust cap from the valve.

Connect the fuel pressure gauge to the Schrader valve.

Install the free end of the gauge bleed hose into an approved gasoline container, and open the gauge bleed valve to relieve the fuel pressure.

Flush the fuel filter line connectors with water, and use compressed air to blow debris off and away from the connectors.

Remove the fuel inlet and outlet lines from the filter following manufacture recommendations (have something around to catch gas that is in the lines and to lay the lines in while prepairing to put new filter on.

To install a new filter, begin by wiping the male tube ends of the new filter with a clean shop towel.

Apply a few drops of clean engine oil to the male tube ends on the filter.

Check the quick connectors to be sure the large collar on each connector has rotated back to the original position. The springs must be visible on the inside diameter of each quick connector.

Then install the filter in the proper direction and leave the mounting bolt slightly loose.

Install the outlet connector onto the filter outlet tube and press the connector firmly in place until the
spring snaps into position.

Grasp the fuel line and try to pull this line from the filter to be sure the quick connector is locked in place.

Then, do the same with the inlet connector.

Now tighten the filter retaining bolt to the specified torque.

Once everything is connected, lower the vehicle, start the engine, and check for fuel leaks at the filter.

How do you change the fuel filter on a 96 Olds Cutlass Supreme 4 door 3.1 V6? Vin#1G3WH52M8TF372414


Hi,

Fuel filters are easy to replace but let me give you some friendly warnings:

CAUTION. To reducethe risk of fire and personal injury always follow the correct procedure for disconnecting and connecting fuel pipe quick connect fittings. This will ensure good connections and prevent possible fuel leaks.

CAUTION. Safety glasses must be worn if you use compressed air, as flying dirt prticles may cause eye injury.

Important

The fuel filter is no longer serviced in regular maintenande intervals. It is only necessary to replace the fuel filter in the case of damage or a clogged filter.

Before replacing a fuel filter it is necessary to relieve fuel system pressure.

Your fuel filter is located under the vehicle, driver side, below seating area, front of fuel tank, mounted on frame rail in fuel line




Fuel filters and elements are serviced by replacement only. Some vehicle manufacturers recommend fuel filter replacement at 30,000 miles (48,000 km). Always replace the fuel filter at the vehicle manufacturer's recommended mileage.

The fuel filter replacement procedure varies depending on the make and year of the vehicle and the type of fuel system. Always follow the filter replacement procedure in the appropriate service manual. The photo sequence below shows a typical procedure for relieving fuel pressure and removing a fuel filter.

Follow the recommended procedures for disconnecting the fuel outlet connector, then remove the fuel filter.

Installing Fuel Filters
In-line fuel filters are installed in the fuel line. In carbureted engines, the in-line gasoline filter is usually installed between the fuel pump and the carburetor. In vehicles with a fuel injection system, the location of the fuel filter is determined by the manufacturer. An arrow on the filter shows the direction of fuel flow.
  • To install a new filter, begin by wiping the male tube ends of the new filter with a clean shop towel.
  • Apply a few drops of clean engine oil to the male tube ends on the filter.
  • Check the quick connectors to be sure the large collar on each connector has rotated back to the original position. The springs must be visible on the inside diameter of each quick connector.
  • Then install the filter in the proper direction and leave the mounting bolt slightly loose.
  • Install the outlet connector onto the filter outlet tube and press the connector firmly in place until the spring snaps into position.
  • Grasp the fuel line and try to pull this line from the filter to be sure the quick connector is locked in place.
  • Then, do the same with the inlet connector.
  • Now tighten the filter retaining bolt to the specified torque.
  • Once everything is connected, lower the vehicle, start the engine, and check for fuel leaks at the filter.

MY HARLEY DAVIDSON FAT BOY 2002 IS LEAKING FUEL AT THE GAS TANK QUICK CONNECTOR. HOW TO FIX THAT??


Is it coming from the inside of the connector or between the connector and the tank? If its between tank and connector its an O-ring issue. If its internal of the connector you will need to replace the whole Connector.

How do i replace the fuel filter on a 2000 Nissan Sentra


Fuel filter for SRDE20B15 engines (00-01) are in the tank mounted on top of the fuel pump inside the fuel assembly. Release fuel pressure by starting car and removing the fuel pump fuse, open fuel filler cap, remove rear seat, open fuel assembly cover by turning the screws clockwise, remove harness, remove fuel line quick connector carefully (if pressure was not relieved, gas will leak, make sure to release pressure completely), take out fuel assembly (watch out for fuel level sensor and temp sensor thingies). Pop top off the fuel assembly and pop fuel level sensor unit with screwdriver. Remove fuel pump harness connector, quick connectors. Pop top off completely, pop fuel filter+pump assembly out, remove fuel pump bracket on the bottom of it. Push fuel pump down from the top harness connector, Take out the rubber grommet (very important - car won't start) between fuel filter and fuel pump, put it into new fuel filter, and reverse all the steps to close it up.
