start at the fuel rail checking all connections to the fuel injectors and the fuel line.

first off.. STOP DRIVING THE CAR!

for the love of everything holy, why do people do this, know they have a fuel leak yet still drive.

if your not comfortable poking around under the hood, tow it to a mechanic.

please dont get me wrong, but you seem to jump off the deep end. i have other means of getting from point a to b and back. i enjoy them sooooooo much more than my dodge.

I don't jump off deep ends.. I live in em..

Seriously though man, fuel systems aren't things to be messed with, if you smell a leak don't put off fixing it. I've seen one to many cars go up in flames due to the whole "oh i'll get around to eventually" mentality.

Check for puddles around the intake area, 2g's only have a single fuel line *no return*. Also check the pressure regulator.

I gotta ask, is it really day glow pink? cuz I think we need pics of that..

no its charcoal gray when i signed up with the site, the form had the color question. day glow pink just came to mind ADHD can be fun at times.

as with the fuel leak i dont see any leaks at all. i was reading thru my .pdf manual it looks like i got to remove the intake manifold??? to check the fuel rail. what a pain. i did check the price for it not bad at all.

is that ur humvee in the background??? id rather drive that than the dodge. nice comeback.

Im lost in fuel leaks so cant even think of what to suggest.

Good luck with the repair. Awesome humvee if its yours, the h1s are the real barebone bulletproof hummers not those POS h2 and h3 soccer moms.

great stuff.... i remember there was some event a few weeks ago when we were promoting green energy and a red bull team had a hummer h1 on site, when i sat inside, let alone the center console armrest was about 22 inches wide or more the passenger seat was so far away. I always wondered how the h1 fits on the road lane restriction.

Great ride nevertheless.

its a joke LOL.... meaning that its so wide that it doesnt fit on one lane of the road.

Im sure if you are not careful you easily cross into the other driving lane. THose things are really wide, but its great for its application.
