will the sarcthes on the fuel cause vacum leak
Answer #3ziptie12 October 03, 2012, 09:09Master
Plastic or metal portion , and what caused the scratches? Fuel rail is liquid (gas) under pressure , so , no it won't cause a vacuum leak.

Sounds like you might want a shop to take a look at it.If it is in fact a pressurized fuel rail that is damaged (other than cosmetic) then it should be replaced NOT repaired! It's GAS --------vapor+spark=FIRE. Guessing not worth your life-please!
