I FOUND A SMALL PUDDLE OF FUEL LAYING IN THE VALLEY ON MY MOTOR WOULD THIS BE THE FUEL PUMP AND IF SO ARE THEY HARD TO CHANGE. I CHANGED MY FUEL FILTER ABOUT A MONTH AGO AND LEFT 2 GASKETS ON AND MAYBE THOUGHT IT WAS THAT BUT FIXED THAT AND THE PUDDLE IS STILL COMMING BACK NOT BAD THOGH. WILL THIS GET WORSE.
I Cleaned The Area With A Degreaser And Let It Idle For Awhile And No Leaks. I Drove It Up The Road And Back And Now Theres A Small Puddle Under The Fuel Pump Looks Like It Comes From Under The Fuel Filter Housing Or The Front Of The Fuel Pump. It Only Leaks When I Drive It. Not Idling.
Mine did not leak at idle either and it was the fuel pump. Its probably leaking from the weep hole on the pump which means the pump is dying. Fuel canister cracks and leaks are common too. You have to clean it again and try going for a shorter drive, maybe just back and forward in the driveway..
