Good to hear it was a somewhat simple fix.

Ironically, I saw a car fire on an exit ramp on the highway yesterday.... It spooked me. I'm like I really, really don't like being reminded that its possible that gas can leaking all over the engine and it takes just one spark from a jumping spark plug wire.... voom!

Glad theres no more leakage. just for safety's sake not just the car

That idler pulley number is GM 24506756 & Acdelco 15-4683

it is different from the tensioner pulley

I saw several items come up by searching the ACdelco#

Should you change your oil with all the extra gas being injected? Can't it run down and mix with the oil causing a spun bearing?

I doubt gas was able to get into the block. it was leaking between the rail and the injector

You make an interesting point.

If fuel accumulates up at the intake around the fuel injector port, is there potential for it to flow into the cylinder, past the piston rings and down to the crankcase?

I understand the main symptoms were external but am also curious about internal side effects.

I was wondering the same thing, not just about the oil, but the gaskets etc. I lost almost a 1/4 tank by the time I got home. Oil change was coming up anyways, so I my as well go ahead an change it.

That's probably best about the oil. Gaskets if they can withstand oil they usually can stand gasoline.
