yeah, bro, that was the fuel rail. best thing honestly, get yourself a Haynes book or Chilton's manual for your car. it will help with little things like this. even with pics here, it might be kinda hard to really show what we're talking about.when i stated to take the thing covering them off, gas came out so i put it back on, now gas seemed to be leaking when i drove it.
this is very dangerous since your engine can catch on fire!!!i did start to pull the fuel rail off cause i was told to and now i have a really bad fuel smell and i think it might be spitting out fuel when i drove it down the road. I put it back on, could it be leaking at all now that i took it off. By the way fuel did spill when i took it off.
+1 Make sure you get it figured out before driving the car. It would suck to loose a mustang to an engine fire. As soon as the gas hits the hot headers its game over. Hopefully you carry a fire extinguisher!this is very dangerous since your engine can catch on fire!!!
Maybe. Check it at idle when cold and make sure there is no fuel leaking at all. Use the smell test and if you smell gas, use the finger test and find out where it is. Maybe you unseated an "O" ring or pinched one. Make sure you are 100% sure there is no leak before driving it.Could the fuel rail be leaking now that i took it off?
+ 1....... check the o-rings, Someone tell him how to get rid of all the gas pressure b4 he does this, (the inertia switch).... id tell em but im gettin off, gotta go help dad get the 78 F100 runningPull the rail off and check all the o rings. You might have pinched one. Its not a bad fuel injector. Put the rail back on very carefully making sure that all the injectors are in the right orientation and not sideways, and that you push down straight on top of them.
