I'm in serious need of your help and I don't know any other way to put it. I let my sister borrow my 1995 4 banger Ford Ranger for about a week. To make a long story short, when I drove it home I could smell a really strong gas odor so I pulled into a gas station and noticed gas pouring out of from what looked like the fuel filter area right under the driver's side.
Anyway, it took another 5 gallons to get home and I later crawled under and took a look. It looks like someone grabbed the fuel line and tried to unsuccessfully pull it out of the fuel filter by hand. I could literally see the imprint of the person's hand where they grabbed the line. They had pulled the line so hard that it crimped and split which is why gas was leaking like a water hose.
Anyway, I had my brother take a look and he cut off the splayed section of the fuel line and reconnected it with 8 separate clamps. That worked fine for about 3 days and now the line is leaking again. It's not nearly as bad as before, but it's still a pretty heavy drip. What steps can I take from here to repair my fuel line for good? I'm really in a bind here folks.
