Replaced a fuel line from the fuel pressure accumulator to the engine when
my accumulator died. Had a short piece of hose made from the accumulator to
the main line running to the engine.

Installed it in such a way that it managed to work its way against the
frame - rubbed a hole in itself and blew. Damn!

First day of snow yesterday and the driveways soaked with gas =(

Thanks Brett, Robert, Jouko, Bryan for very speedy and helpful hints!

Have tried searching the archives but not having much luck...

While driving on the highway the other night, everything was going fine and
then the engine just died at ~120 kph. Total loss of power, costed off at
the next ramp and parked it. Nothing appeared to be amiss, pulled codes and
got 2221 - intake manifold hose failure to ecu(shouldn't kill engine), and
2214 - engine over rev (not this trip), cleared them, cranked the engine and
got the same codes again. Had it towed home :-(

Kind of stumped, fuel in tank, lots of battery juice, cranks over fine (new
battery), but just won't even hint at starting. Usually the code dump would
give a hint, but they don't seem to make sense. Hose to ecu checks out fine
but that shouldn't kill the engine, and over rev on starter cranking? go

Any ideas?
