Q: Gas line leaking

asked by on

The gas line is leaking by the engine.

Fuel lines by the engine on GM cars are usually plastic and use quick connects. The fuel rail that houses the injectors is steel. The leak could be a failed O-ring or a cracked line. Do not delay this repair for obvious reasons. I would have this gas leak inspected and repaired as soon as possible to get you safely back on the road.
