well guys found the culprit to my poor fuel mileage in my 95 = HUGE fuel leak
I thought it was useing way too much fuel. I noticed today when its running a steady drip comming from the passengers edge and middle of the torque converter cover. When i reved it up it blew 1/2 cup of fuel. Drove it up the yard and you could see spots about the size of 2 quarters in a trail all the way up the driveway. Now that the snow is gone its easy to see. We took the engine cover off and took the filter cap off and cleaned to make sure it wasn't comming from there. With the cover off we started it up again and looked with a flash light around the filter houseing and didn't see any fuel leaking into the valley. We checked underneath and it was still leaking. I'm afraid if i take the houseing off and its not a cracked hose or bad clamp i won't find it. Is there a common leak spot on the 1995? If it was leaking from the drain on the front side of the filter houseing it would be leaking from the front of the motor right? The newer trucks when it leaks from here its usually that because the drain is on the firewall side of the houseing right?
Any help would be appreciated.
