Hello all. The wife's '95 Discovery series 1 has sprung an
intermittant fuel leak. She told me it was leaking when she topped off
her fuel tank today. I thought filler hoses -- I checked back up
there, and sure enough it looks like one or two of the hoses are
cracked. Unfortunately, I don't know what I'm looking at!
There are two hoses -- the fat filler hose with a rubber midsection
clamped on and a thinner rubber hose that runs from some unseen
location above the fuel tank back up to some other unseen location by
the fuel filler inlet, presumably.
The upper passenger side (U.S. so right side from behind) is also wet,
I'm assuming from the fuel running down the culprit hose, onto the
tank, and then dripping off the bottom of the rear of the frame rail.
She HAS had the fuel tank replaced recently as per the recall notice
informing Land Rover owners of possibly faulty tanks so I don't think
the tank is leaking.
I have a decent ammount of experience working on cars, but mostly my
small Japanese sports cars. I've done brakes and oil changes on her
Disco and fixed the rear door latch, but nothing else.
Anyone know how much the labor will cost to fix this problem? Parts
cost? Please enlighten me. =)
