replaced fuel pump. Now I have gas leak

Post by Rgierer » Thu Aug 01, 2019 10:37 am

car 1998 V70T5

When I was removing fuel lines from pump, one hose leaked as it was being removed. It looks like there is an elbow composed of multiple parts and those parts leak.

When I replaced pump,car starts and runs nicely but has a small fuel leak at pump at that specific connection.

Is there a replacement part or a repair which can be done to remedy this issue?

Does it leak at the fitting or is it in the hose itself? I have had a fitting leak where just removing the not so "quick connect" and giving it a dab of oil allowed it to seal back up. If it is in the hose or the pipe it gets more complicated,

It is in the fitting. A dab of oil will be applied today.

Thank you

It worked!

After a spot of oil and a liberal application of silicone spray, my problems are gone!

Thank you
