Alert me when someone posts in this thread:

I agree w the prev post about the pump and sending unit gaskets. if i remember correctly, there is also a return line on the top pass. side front of the tank.(Fuel injection cars) It's kinda out of sight. You may have to get under the car, in front of the rear axle to get a look at it. Think i took the wheel off. Its been a bit since i worked on mine, it was leaking from here and the bottom near the Accumulator. Had to replace the tank.
I think i just cut the hose off shorter and re-installed it to fix that one. i would fill up the tank and see what you can see.

Also a little more info, you may start to experience a hot start, or no start when the engine is heated up condition. This would be due to fuel pressure at stop being lost in the system due to the air/fuel leak. My 78 EMS was also doing this until i fixed up the fuel system.
