The last couple days have been very cold (single digits) and a strong gas smell fills the cabin of my 2002 Outback wagon.
When I popped the hood, I found a gas leak from one of the hose sections.
I've included two pictures. One from far back to show the location of the leak highlighted in red. The close-up shows the portion where the leak takes place. It drips right where that little clamp with the phillips screw attaches.
I'm not mechanically inclined, but this looks to me like a pretty quick and simple repair. Looks like a 10 minute job with $5 worth of parts. Is it?
I'm trying to decide whether to take it in or not. I'm currently unemployed and just spent a lot of money on brakes and tires.
Well, replacing the hose proved to be more involved than I first thought. Mine is the one under the metal shroud that others have mentioned. I did, however, tighten the screw on the one end that is exposed and so far no leak. I'll check again in the am.
Thanks for the responses and link to the other thread.
