1995 YJ fuel leak problem

Every now and then my jeep will leak a steady stream of fuel in the rear left tire area. When it happens, it's a steady drip and will leave a good sized pool if I idle for a minute. If I turn off the jeep and restart it, sometimes it will leak, sometimes it won't. Most of the time it runs fine, no leaks. I have the 4cyl engine. Any ideas?

Check the lines to the fuel filter. Mine did that they needed to be replaced weather rot.

This sound like it could be a couple of items... Check the filler tube and vent. Also, given the location, check your fuel filter connections. It resides at the driver's side inside the frame rail at or just before the rear wheel. If this problem is persistent, it should be easy to locate the source.

Okay I'll change the fuel filter first and see if that helps. I bought it last year and haven't replaced it yet.

Mine was doing the same thing. It was the fuel line going from the tank to the fuel filter. Mine wasn't pushed on all the way just had to loosen clamp, push it on and tighten clamp. Yours might just be rotten though and need replacing. Don't forget to depressurize the fuel line before messing with t or you will get a gasoline bath. You can find the fitting on the fuel rail it looks kind of like a AC fitting. Oh mine has the 4.0 so don't know if it is similar or not.

I won't argue with replacing the fuel filter as you do not know the history of it, but please look for pre-existing leaks before doing so. This way you have a bit of confidence of fixing the original problem if you see the issue before you do the work.

Just thought of another thing, for a while I ran the gas down and kept it below 1/2 tank thinking that would solve the problem, but it happens at no matter what level. Right now the tank is full and the gas hasn't leaked for a few drives.
