The Mercedes Fuel Leak

The Mercedes Fuel Leak

This Mercedes came in because the customer had been noticing a fuel smell, mostly inside the car. The first thing we did was pull the access panel and check for leaks. Once we got the panel off, I noticed a puddle of fuel, so we turned the key on and found the leak immediately. The pump housing has a crack, causing it to leak on the access panel. He’s gonna need a new fuel pump. Sadly, there’s no way to seal it back up and be sure it will last since it’s plastic.

@CaptNemo_ says:

I know what’s wrong with it. It got no gas in it lol

@Anonymous8317 says:

At least it’s a vehicle with an access port for the fuel pump. It makes it much easier to fix or replace/upgrade.
