So I thought I fixed it, apparently not.. Is the quick disconnect part suppose to have some type of "O" ring inside or on the fitting? It snaps on and off fine, which Is why i'm confused on why it would be dripping...
I'm almost positive my L36 fuel connection has a white connector with 'pinch tabs' on it, which releases/holds on the fuel line. Is this the copper-coloured item on yours? I haven't looked too close at my fuel rails for some time.
Yes, the black part of the connector has an "O" Ring in it.
The "O" ring gets old and hard or brittle and does not seal any more.
Dorman makes a varity pack of Fuel safe "O" rings that has 1 the correct size in the package. About $6.00 or so at Autozone , O'Rielly, na;pa, etc.
You have to look inside the the connector to see how it is sandwiched between the 2 nylon spacer rings before digging the old one out with a very small hook. A staright pin bent into a tight hook will work. Do not damage the Nylon Spacers when getting the "O" ring out.
Then slide the new "O" ring you matched from the package back into the connector. It is tight and you must make sure you get it back in with the nylon spacers the same way as the old one was positioned, or it will leak worse. Also don’t nick or cut the new “O” ring when putting it back in. A little dialectic grease might help getting the new one to slide in place.
The plastic clip on the fuel rail ( they turn yellow with age.) is also replaceable if it is also shows signs of damaged. (autozone, O'Rielly ,napa, etc has them in the helps section).
