Is it possible that there's a leak at the fuel filter? (This is a second hand vehicle with 150K miles and we're unaware of previous maintenance efforts.) What happens if the fuel filter is never replaced?
Replacing the O-rings is rather labor intensive, correct? Any idea how much it will cost?
I once had to have O-rings replaced on another car because of a "vapor lock": The car wouldn't start because the O-rings were old and dried out. This cost me over $2000. Did they take me for a ride?
I was hoping that I was onto something else - a cheaper route - with the suggested replacement of the fuel filter. Do you know for sure that the fuel filter is located away from the firewall?
I have the Quest. Very good. I will follow your advise. Q.: What do you mean, "you get a strong smell with neat fuel...."?
Great answers! Thank you! I'll accept after I send this final transmission.
