Default Leaking fuel between fuel filter and fuel line help.

98 T/A, car was leaking fuel from where the fuel line clips into the filter. I replaced the filter, and it's still leaking. Is there an o ring in there or anything that could be causing this?

Yes there is an o-ring in there. I have no idea of the size, maybe you can remove it with a small pick and get a universal one, or better yet get one from a GM dealer.

Problem solved, yes it was the O-ring, but the perfect size was needed, I tried using another size similar and it didn't work, so I took one off another car and it's all better now.
