    Default Any Ideas, Fuel leak?

    hi guys

    not to long ago i had some engine work done, crank went n nackered some stuff, well i had it fixed, sinse then have just clocked over 700 miles in it. now only when the engine is running, petrol is leaking out from under the engine but not when the car is not running,so im guessing that when car is on its pumping the petrol from the tank to the engine and somethink is leaking. any ideas what this could be, hopefully its just somethink the engine engineers havent put back on/tightened correctly just hoping it isnt nothink major as sinse september ive spend over £2500 getting this engine sorted and it just seems to be 1 problem after the next.

    could be a loose fuel line or a dodgy injector seal , that kind of thing , why not speak to whoever did the engine work if the car has only done 700 miles then surely the work is warranted .

    wouldn't be driving it if it has a fuel leak , 1 - fuel costs too much & 2 - fuel burns well

    Friend had a strong smell of fuel on her astra recently. Very noticable on the offside. Turned out it was the fuel filter leaking.

    looks like DTi Elite was correct, got it back from the engineers was a rubber seal on injector num 3, sorted it and is fine now. result
