I just signed up and made an account, so I’m not familiar with the forums here at all. If this is posted in the wrong place, please let me know and direct me to a better place to post this! I’d like to get some help, not just get over-looked because I goofed up. (=
Anyways, on to the problem! My fiancé has a 1968 Mustang with what we think might be a problem with the carburetor. The car was starting just fine up until a few weeks ago. When we went to start it up the last time, we noticed she was leaking fuel! Every time you pump the gas, a little stream of fuel squirts out and pools in the engine area. I’m sorry, I know absolutely nothing about cars so I’m sure this description doesn’t really help you out, but I was able to take some photos and I pointed out where the fuel is leaking and pooling.
Our best guess is that it’s a problem with maybe a cracked rubber seal somewhere, but again, I know nothing about cars and how to fix them. I just thought it would be a safer bet to make a posting here and see if anyone has had a similar problem and has any friendly advice to lend before we try to tow the car to a repair shop and run the risk of having some crook tell us the car is worse off than she really is.
I appreciate ANY and ALL help you have to offer! I will try to answer any questions you have and I can take additional pictures if you need me to. The pictures below were originally taken with a camera phone, but I’m going to get new batteries for my actual digi-cam so I can take better, more detailed shots if anyone requires them.
have the same problem?
