Default welcome

welcome to the club.
Don't know where your talking about, could you be more descriptive on where the gas is leaking.
The car shouldn't be driven like this, its dangerous.
Did you get a check engine light? If so you can scan it for codes.

You see gas coming from here?



Something wrong with his fuel rail maybe?

Dude, you see gas coming out under the hood? DO NOT DRIVE THE CAR! Seriously. I cannot emphasize it enough.

In this pic, can you try to describe where it is coming from?

There a little gas coming from thing that is in front of the Tran dip stick... The check engine light is on. But if you hit the gas on the road. It miss at 3,000 4,000 rpm...

The real problem is that that car keep on cutting off. For some reason, But it starts up like nothing is wrong with the car. Then when you drive it feel like it going to shut off.
The itf you hit the gas it feels like it is bogging out. Like the car have a mine of it own. Play game with you. like it doesn't want too go..

The thing you are talking about is the EGR valve. It would be hard to get liquid fuel in that location unless it is running seriously rich and the exhaust is plugged causing very high backpressure. The fuel feed line connects to the rear of the rail sorta close to that location. Loose connection maybe?

Yep, loose connection or some serious rich runnings. If it is litterally coming out the EGR Valve [the mushroom thing], then that is not good.. very bad. Try to pinpoint an exact location.. because a lot of the stuff is intermingled around there.
