So quick question. I changed the valve located driver side on tube that comes up off the driver's side header. However when I removed the hose that runs around back of engine a good amount of fluid came out.... I'm guessing this is unburnt fuel?? Is this something to worry about. I've been having an intermittent hard start every now and then where it takes two turns I'd the key.

Welcome to the forum from Oregon.

Care to share vehicle info? I hate guessing.

That air pump line should not have any fuel in it. I doubt it was fuel. Did you touch it and smell it? I think it is just water condensation and is nothing to worry about. Air pump is plumbed in to the exhaust and when you are running that engine, water condensation goes thru the system and drips out the muffler.

That's what I figured. I did smell it and it didn't quite have the smell of fuel. It just worried me for a second on how much spilled out. Lol.

Thanks for confirmation.
