    I just noticed that there is fuel leaking from the driver's side of the car. It stops leaking when the car is turned off. I haven't had a chance to take a look at it yet but I'm guessing it's the fuel pump. I recently swapped a B18B into a 99 Civic. Any help you guys can give, I'd appreciate it. Thanks.

    I take it that the leak is at the rear of the car?

    The fuel leak is under the engine bay on the left side of the car. It's not leaking on the rear side.

    Ahhh OK. Fuel pump is back near the fuel tank, which is why I thought the leak was back there when you mentioned the pump.

    Yeah, do what E_Solsi said. :D

    Oops, sorry about that, Accord. Anyways, my bro checked it out for me and he fixed it. He just had to tighten something. Thanks for the help guys.
