My truck recently had a big fuel leak. And by big I mean fuel spraying all over the underside of my truck, and directly onto the exhaust manifold.
The quick connect "locking tab" disconnected and the connection separated spraying fuel everywhere.
First my check engine light came on, then I got to where I was going stop and smelled major diesel. Low and behold there was a diesel waterfall under my truck.
Anyway a reconnected the lines and no leaks. But it seems to me this connections don't latch all that well and could easily come loose, and it seems like the just pull the flex hose and the steel line together. I've heard of this happening before.
Does Ford or anyone else make a better connector? They're the silver connectors on the fuel lines in the photo. They're pretty *****y if you ask me.
