Default Winter Fuel Leak

Anybody ever had problems with cold weather causing a fuel leak on an 07 wrx ? I've seen a bunch of threads about it but they all seem to mention 02-03 only. My car was parked out in 40 degree F weather for three hours, and when I cranked it up I noticed all the way home there was a decently strong gas smell in the cabin. Today it was warmer but it still smells, not sure what to do.

You can check the common problem areas, the rubber hoses underneath the intake manifold and the evap system fittings under the hood.

I am havin the problem right now. I tried to fix it with autoparts store hose but that didn't work. It still leaked. I am getting my suabru hose in the mail tomorrow and will remove the intake and install the new hose and new clamps. This is a known problem and I believe there was a recall or tsb for wrx on this. Lots of foresters experience this.

I had the same problem. I used fuel-injection rated hose and stainless-steel double pinch [ear] clamps to ensure a positive seal.

If you are going to R&R the manifold, purchase the I/M to TGV gaskets and TGV to head gaskets. Also, if you have not yet changed the coolant, might as well do this at the same time since you will be draining the system down.

Happens on Legacy GT's too. I used lock wire to tighten the hose where it was leaking behind the AC compressor. Did that back in 07 I think. In May 2012 I rotated the clamps when I had the engine out.

This past weekend I had to tighten that same clamp again.
