fuel pump leaking

Post by Mochi »

I got home from a drive and noticed fuel leaking from the bottom of the car. it was late and did not have time to investigate. the next day I started to look at the issue. fuel is pulsing out of to two spots below the what i assume is the diaphragm. it looks like it is not coming from a gasket but the body of the fuel pump? is this a broken diaphragm? or something way worse!

The diaphragm has no tear in it but it looks like the rubber just melted away?! I have parts on order to rebuild the fuel pump

Zooming in, it looks like there is a tear at about the 9 O’clock position.

I would check your oil to make sure it doesn't have gas in it.

If the bottom seal is intact, no fuel got into the oil
