That's how the mafia checks for leaks.

OK. I found where the laek was coming from. It was coming from the grommet that holds the harness for the fuel tank. It somehow has dirt embedded in between the lip and the metal of the car. I also checked under the car around the area of leakage and found a bad seal from the factory when they sealed the sheetmetal together. I stripped it and resealed it. I found this leak when I did a leak test with the hose under the car. My buddy was in the car saying it was spraying like a watergun. yeah...

Unfortunately, the person in the trunk typically ends up expired due to leaks as well.

Good catch.......I hate water leaks for the reason that they are so darn hard to track down. You didn't happen to take any pictures of the problem area(s) did you? That would be valuable for anyone else who might experience this same problem in the future.
