Hello my name is ***** ***** there fuel leaking out on top of the intake manifold, or is there a white smoke out the exhaust?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It's spraying out of the fuel rail (sensor?). I'm not exaggerating when I say spraying
Expert:  Scott W. replied 1 year ago.
Ok, did it get cracked during plug removal? Do you need any instructions on replacement?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No. I did un screw it to gain better access. Is there supposed to be a gasket that goes around it?
Expert:  Scott W. replied 1 year ago.
There is a oring that seals it.
Expert:  Scott W. replied 1 year ago.
Do you want to see removal and install instructions?
Expert:  Scott W. replied 1 year ago.
Here is a breakdown and installation instructions.
Expert:  Scott W. replied 1 year ago.
Any more questions just ask, thanks Scott
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Everything is out back correctly. Do I need to release some fuel before I start it back up
Expert:  Scott W. replied 1 year ago.
You mean you have it all installed correctly now?
Expert:  Scott W. replied 1 year ago.
Cycle the key, don't start it, let the raw fuel evporate first, don't want to start a fire. Then recheck for leaks.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Whenever I turn the key on is when it starts spitting out gas
Expert:  Scott W. replied 1 year ago.
So it is still leaking? Have you checked to make sure the oring is in place?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It's installed correctly
Expert:  Scott W. replied 1 year ago.
You may have a cracked FRP sensor then, if the oring is all installed correctly, I would replace the FRP sensor, then recheck for leaks.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Nothing is cracked. What would cause gas to just shoot out of that fuel rail
Expert:  Scott W. replied 1 year ago.
It has to be a cut oring then. Inspect the oring for a chunk missing.
