That's is a vent pipe on the fuel pump - the seal pump is gone, you need to replace the pump AND check the oil in the engine, fuel leaking past the seal goes into the sump and dilutes the oil.

Better get on it right away as the diluted oil does not do a good job at lubricating the engine.

Whoops - that should have said 'seal in the pump' - you have to replace the fuel pump.

What Fordem sez!

I destroyed a freshly-rebuilt 1.3 because I didn't catch the leak caused by a broken pump diaphragm quickly enough!

Here is a page that i created for Ack's FAQ that explains it pictorially:

Ack's FAQ Samurai 1.3 Mechanical Fuel Pump Symptoms - Gasoline and Oil Leaks at Vent Tube

I hope that this helps![/QUOTE

1 more thing i was drving it and losing power i know now its due to this , how do i know if my engine is still ok it sounds like its half stuffed or will it be ok once i get rid of that fuel pump ??? cheers

how much effort is involved in changing one of these?
:confused:WHAT?!?:confused:

I can't see it taking more than an hour and that includes the oil & filter change as well and cleaning up afterwards.

There are two bolts holding the pump on - pull the hoses off, take the bolts out, pull the pump off, and reassemble in the reverse sequence.

Just make sure you don't forget the step where you change the oil and filter. That's the part that destroys the engine. Gasoline in your engine oil = very bad!

If by "half stuffed" you mean the engine is very noisy and losing power, it may already be too late.

If you discover that your oil is very thin, the oil smells like gasoline and the dipstick looks like the engine oil is overfilled, it may be too late.

A change to fresh and thicker oil (10W-40 or thicker) may help make the engine run a bit longer, but it is really time to rebuild/replace the engine.

Whatever you do at this point, DO NOT RUN THE ENGINE UNTIL YOU HAVE CHANGED THE OIL AND REPLACED THE FUEL PUMP!

lol i jst meant is there anything special u have to do. guess not...

and id probably stick to 20-50W oil, especially after having that happen. also i'd be changing the oil again in about a weeks time, just to remove all the excess crap...
