Q: Fuel leaking from vehicle

asked by on

I have a fuel leak.

If you have a fuel leak, you should have the car checked-out by a technician to determine where the leak is coming from. Leaking fuel can be very dangerous, and should be addressed as soon as possible. If the fuel is leaking in the back of the car, it could mean that the fuel tank is leaking, or the fittings going to the fuel pump are leaking. I would suggest having a technician from YourMechanic come out and inspect the car and replace the leaking part as necessary.
