    Default help 2.2 direct fuel smell in cabin

    can any one help, my sri 2.2 direct 2006 has started to send fuel vapur smell into the car there is no spanner light or anything she runs sweet (no missfiring)
    the only difference i have made was to put some tailpipes on the back end and i thought there mght be a back flow of fumes but they are all clear and sealed up well.
    i t is more noticable on start up,and when your driving it goes away,only when you are in sitting traffic does it come into the cabin.
    i only hope its not the dreaded fuel pump or this high pressure thingy magig watchdog were going on about .but as i said she drives perfect theres no stalling or struggling to start symptoms.

    sorry for the long ask but stumped what to look for.

    right i think i have found the problem.

    there is a small disc shaped item about the size of 50mm diameter with a pipe either one from the rear and thenext going to the front of the engine.
    there is a small hairline split with a very fine mist of fuel leeking from it

    does anyone know what its called and whats involved to replace

    What ever it is you need to change it, with fuel leaking over a hot engine it's a potential fire waiting to happen imo ...........

    I remember Benny mentioning this part before, I dont think you can fit just this part, I believe it involves some of the line as well. dont think its a flame trap might be some sort of regulator before the hp pump but i cant remember.

    yes from bennys description from another thread i found .
    its a fuel damper and smooths the flow of fuel into the engine and yes its pipes as well as the silver part.

    £50 for the part and vauxhall charge £80 an hour to fit ,robbing b*****ds
