A fuel leak in the engine compartment is likely caused by the flexible fuel line coming off the fuel filter that is going to the fuel rail. A fuel leak is a large safety concern. While this repair may seem simple, I would recommend enlisting the assistance of a certified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, to come by and confirm the source of the fuel leak. They will have the experience and tools needed to make the repairs necessary to eliminate the fuel leak and keep you worry free when driving your Honda CRX.
