Ya know the gas line that plugs into the injectors from the lower intake? Well, where it connects to the injectors it has started leaking as I tried starting the new 3.1. Any fixes for this? If it has to be replaced, how do you take the thing off?

I tried tighting this further... didn't work out.

The cold start injector line is probably just fine, but the O-ring inside is junk. The kit with all new O-rings for the cold start injector system is $18, but you can go to http://www.mcmaster.com and order a package of # -105 O-rings in Viton (not Buna-N or nitrile like common parts store O-rings are typically) for around $5 plus shipping. Make sure you get Viton, other materials will fail quickly due to the heat in that location.

BTW, I cropped and resized your pic and put it here: http://www.fierocentral.com/images/misc/coldstarttubeleak.jpg

you can right click/save as and replace the mongo pic you have here now.

Mine did the same thing. There are a couple of "o" rings that help seal it off. I just had to find some around the same size that were fuel proof. I found some Brown ones at one of the autopart stores that I had to ground down a bit to make them work. So far no more leaks. P.S. don't drive the car that way unless you want an engine fire.

Be absolutely certain you use the right size. I tried one that I thought was close enough, and it created a fuel geyser.
