    Default Im Leaking Fuel

    Hay all..

    Advertisement


    My 83 505 STI is dropping a bit of fuel just up from the pump at this litttle thingy that looks as if should have a hose running off it.. ??

    Its a small cylinder in shape, and has a little nipple on the end pointing towards the ground where fuel is droping when pump is on and engine ticking over..

    Can i just tie a cable tie around it and stop it.. or is it something more important which serves a usefull role in regulating the flow of fuel, and should have it repaired, replaced?

    Default leaking fuel

    Sounds like what you are talking about is the fuel accumulator. Its function is to keep fuel pressure in the system when the engine is shut off, so that you dont have to crank the crap out of the engine to start it. If its leaking it may be stuffed? Regards Pete

    I am gunna get another 403 on the road........one day
