Croft. I bought a 1993 Dakota 4x4 5.2 and it is leaking fuel from the return side on top of the tank. I replaced to fitting with still no luck

Mechanic's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

I replace the connector and even pulled the fuel pump assembly to make sure it was not clogged. I switched the lines around to see if by chance they were backwards and it is till leaking really bad the fuel is spraying from the connection on the return line

The tech you requested seems to be away at the moment so I'll try to help you with this if you'd like. Is fuel coming out the end of the fitting or could it possibly be coming from pin hole or a crack on either side of the fitting?

What Customers are Saying:

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
