I have a gas leak I'm not sure if it's the fuel filter or the rubber hose

My car has 15900 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Your best bet is to not drive or even start the vehicle until you get the leak inspected and fixed. There has been issues with the fuel line connections and the filter not fitting the line for some of the aftermarket filters not being the exact size fitting. A gas leak can lead to a fire no matter how small. Have a mechanic come to you to identify and fix the leak so you can get back on the road safely.

Q: I recently changed out a bad coil pack that had been bad for a month. Literally today it got changed and shuts down while driving

Hello. The bad coil wouldn't have caused the crank sensor to fail. Crankshaft sensors are the most common failure on this engine so it should just be a coincidence. I would use a scan tool just to make sure that...
