Leaking fuel

1994 Dodge Caravan sat for several months ( 3 - broken leg). Recharged the battery, started it up and noticed fuel leaking under passenger side around front of the frame rail. Turned off and stopped leaking as bad! I was wondering if the fuel line has
nylon/plastic to metal/rubber. Too dark to look tonight but would like to get a jump start on research to order parts in the morn. Can anyone provide a diagram or part list from the pump to the intake? Would greatly appreciate it.
Rob.

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.

Thank you for taking the time to respond! I live in Nova Scotia, Canada
and we salt our roads all winter so it makes sense especially given the year of the van. I will inspect these items right away!
Thanks again. Rob
