Default fuel lines

heres the problem. 2 weeks ago i noticed a small gas leak coming from one of the two fuel lines that run to the engine. it was coming from the part where it snaps on to the two tubes of the engine which is right behine the engine. I pushed it in and it stopped leaking. A few days later everything is alright. Then two days ago i think i smelled a little gas and today i spoke with a guy from the dealer. He said it could be the plastic or the seal is broken or out of place and i pushed it back into place. Has anyone else had this problem? please let me no

thanks

I noticed mine leaked a tad bit after I removed them for some maintainence. I just wiggled them a little bit and seemed to stop leaking. I do believe you can order new plastic inserts for those quick release fuel lines. Typical plumbers nightmare. Touch one pipe, and they all start to leak.

there is an o ring usually inside with the white plastic connector. I believe I saw some of the rings and connectors in the HELP section of my local AutoZone.

Sounds like that would be the first thing I would try and then aim for the fuel lines themselves.
