Fuel leak

Hey guys I know it's probably out there but I couldn't find the forum. I have a major fuel leak coming out of the air intake manifold. Would I just need to make a new gasket or would this be a bigger problem than that?

Re: Fuel leak

The air intake goes into the tubo and there are no fuel lines attached to it.

Is it spraying or leaking? The filter housing can leak and spray, you also have 2 hoses leaving the fuel filter housing going to the fuel pump and then the fuel pump has metal lines going to the heads.

So just where is yours leaking?

It is spraying fuel out of a bolt in the middle of the intake plenum ( I believe that's it's name). It's on the passenger side near the front of the motor. About 3 or 4 inches behind from where the line goes into the motor.

Is there a way to upload video's?

Re: Fuel leak

sounds like passenger side head injector supply line is cracked or has a hole rubbed it.

So is it in the Middle, or in the Front? If its in the middle, it could be a HPOP line that feeds the heads, if its in the front, it could be the fuel return hose that goes back to the filter housing.

Like they said, pictures will help though.
