Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Soo.. My moms buick lesabre has a
gas leak.. She met a man who says he
knows how to fix it.. a few days pass,
so she decides to DRIVE to let him
look at it. He looks at it, so my mom
decides to let him fix it..before he
unjacks the car he wanted to take
another look.. So then he snapped
something.. and gas leaked
everywhere. Now the car is stuck in
his driveway., so my mom is allowing
him to fix it. Today is the third day
amd he still isnt done. First the bolt
was stuck.. I guess he eventually got
the bolt out... So now he put in a new
cynder.. Now the car isnt staying
started.. Someone please help me get
answers for her lol.. He SAYS he
needs a filter, could that be it?

sure...this probably is the most likely scenario....it's like a short bologna usually at the firewall, but sometimes unfortunatlely underneath where to replace this without takin' a dangerous shower in gasoline are gonna need some of these special fuel pincher-cut-off tools~

Not sure what is leaking and what cylinder he replaced. Filter might need replacing, but wouldn't have anything to do with the car starting. unless it isn't hooked up properly. Seems he doesn't know what he is doing. Tell your Mom to have the car towed to a local mechanic so it can be repaired safely. Does she have AAA or roadside assistance? You don't want to have raw fuel leaking.

ice fuel line at the filter. He's going to have to repair/ replace the fuel line and the filter. HTH. -Jim
