Gas drip on top of engine block
1 Attachment(s)
Hi - I have a 2004 ram slt 4x4 with 66K miles. I drove it the other day and smelled a really strong odor of gas. I popped the hood and could see gas dripping from a fitting on the top of the engine. I have a picture I will try and upload. Is this an easy fix or should I bring it in as I see this as a good chance to catch on fire!!!
Any help or advice would be appreciated. I'm not that great with auto work but I do tinker around if I can accomplish it myself.

Its not clear where it is leaking. Im sure you are referring to your fuel rail, but where i am not sure.

It could be leaking from the supply line of the fuel rail or through a bad o-ring (or worst case scenario i crack on the rail itself.

Bring it to a professional.

It looks like the main supply line feeding into the fuel rail. You need a professional to determine if it is a hole in system or a leaking may have replace both depending how corroded they are once inspected.
