You could do this but leak could also be around oil filler plug if not seated. The main engine bearing seal is more likely if the unit is old with large number of hours.

If you find a bad gasket, replace with the silicone make your own sealant AND DO NOT overtighten screws. That can worsen the problem with gaskets.

Why is fuel leaking from behind rear driver side wheel?

Paul; You probably have found the leak, which was a repair made by somebody else in the past. Ensure leak, rusted out, or crack is cut out of steel line before making below repair and follow all safety precaution when working around flammable fuels.
To do a cheap repair which is not necessarily the best remove and replace existing hose and clamps. Go get a length, enough (high pressure) rubber fuel hose, (4 gear clamps) to put over hose to double clamp connections on both ends of hose. This repair could last the life of the car easily.

Gas seems to be coming from the top of plastic gas tank and running down the left side of the tank and dripping on the ground

I know it sounds a bit difficult but fuel leaking is serious danger so with this id siphon tank dry (don't use a drill pump ) and undo fasteners and hoses/wires that hold it too truck , lowering it to ground , a carefull inspection of approx. area of leak will tell the problem , your looking for cracks in plastic or rubber hoses , these might be very small and fine look closely
if cracks are in the tank , unless you know someone with a ultrasonic welder id replace the tank

Gas line leaking (dripping) on passenger side. I reached under to see where the leak originates and I feel a piece of rubber, feels like some sort of connector, soaked in gas. I had some exhaust work done...

sounds like a previous owner used a hose splice to fix a leak. get it up in the air and see if you can do the same thing. this time tell the guy you want fuel line for a 94 and double clamp it on. otherwise run a whole new fuel line. note that fuel line for newer cars is much higher pressure than the good old stuff pre 90s which went to a mechanical pump on the side of the engine

I punctured my gas line. I would like to know what I need to do to repair it. I have a 98 Kia Sephia, 1.8 liter engine, automatic.

If it's just a hole on steel line get a piece of rubber fuel line and 2 gas line clamps. Cut the line at the hole and clean it off with a piece of emery cloth or sandpaper. Slide the rubber hose and clamps onto one side and then over the other.Place the clamps on either side of the cut and tighten.
If it's plastic line then there is a brass compression fitting you can use. Measure the size of the line and get the fitting to match. Cut the line and clean it off. Slide one nut and the ferrule onto the line and thread it onto the union. Do the other side and tighten but not too tight or you will compress the line. Start the car and check for leaks. Tighten only until the leaking, if any, stops and quit.
Hope this helps.

85 Bronco 351w fuel leak

Sounds like you are rusted out. Even the factory parts are not that expensive and they are properly bent. Check the dealer.
If substituting aftermarket piping you want to either replace the bad section with a splice or the whole piece. Notice the end connections and where you will attach the replacements.
Notice the routing of the gas line away from hot exhaust parts and areas a lift jack will crush your line. Notice what moves close to the fuel line to allow for travel.

You may be able to splice a piece of rubber fuel line into a metal line with a few clamps.

I have seen everything you will need at Autozone and Oreillys and similar stores with the exception of Factory parts.

Fuel drip (leak) under car close to fuel tank

Yes, that sounds like the problem. The filter is usually attached to the steel fuel lines with a short piece of rubber hose (not sure about vw though) which over time will dry up and split, allowing fuel to leak. I checked, and a replacement is about $30 (much more from the dealer) . If it uses the 2 short hoses, it will come with them, and hopefully that will be the cure. DON'T park car inside a garage until this is fixed, fumes will build up and can ignite in a closed area just by flipping on a wall light switch or starting the car.

Gas line is leaking very close to tank. The leak is at the joint where the metal pipe coming from tank meets a rubber hose that runs to filter. It seems to be leaking right at this joint which seems to...

You want to be very careful not to make any sparks while working on this. The obvious is smoking, banging metal tools around, etc. keep cell phones AWAY from the area. Pick up some rubber fuel line from the parts store. Be prepared for some gas leakage, have a plastic pan under the leak. Disconnect the line at the tank, have a piece of new hose ready to push on over the line to as close to the tank as you can, have the end away from the tank plugged up temporarily with a pencil or something that fits snug in it, then remove the rubber hose on the filter, and connect new line from tank to filter, check for leaks, hopefully it is the rubber line you replaced, or the end of the metal line, so the new hose will hopefully cover the corroded leaking area. Clamp and Dry off area and see if you can spot any leaks.

Fuel petcock

The petcock is what the fuel flows through when it comes out of the gas tank. It probably includes: * A switch with positions for On, Off and Reserve. * A fuel line going to the carburetors. * A vacuum hose attachment which attaches to a carburetor which tugs on a rubber diaphram to let gas flow through. * An overflow/drip valve from the vacuum area. It's located right under the tank on the rear/left side.
