If it's that close to the front, check the two rubber hoses that go from the right strut tower to the fuel rail on the engine. They're just under the right hood hinge. Be sure to use fuel injection hose as a replacement because pressures will reach 55 psi. Costs about a dollar per foot off a bulk roll from the auto parts stores. I recently put four feet on my '88 Grand Caravan. Got sick of replacing steel line all the time as I live in WI where they throw a ton of road salt on an ounce of snow!
Also look at the metal lines that run along the right frame rail. Usually they will rust through further back where road salt collects. You can use bulk steel brake line for replacement.
Check the fuel filter quick connections in front of the right rear wheel. There are four band-type hose clamps that can rust off. If the connectors are corroded, the dealer has a repair kit that has four fittings. You use the two curved ones or the two straight ones as needed.
