HI,

I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question.

Did you replace the complete line or cut the old line and use junction fittings and partial line to repair? If you used fittings, did you use compression or union line fittings?

Where is it leaking, at a fitting going into the abs pump, from a line repair fitting, or cannot tell at this point

Please remember that I am not there and therefore rely on your as much detail as possible
