03 eclipse gt 3.0l v6 fuel rail clip

Mitsubishi Eclipse

I have 2 plastic hooks or something similar that hold the fuel rail in place and currently one of the 2 hooks broke off, would that cause my cars engine to bog down and nearly die when I’m braking and slowing down if the fuel rail moves?



No. If the fuel rail were to move enough to do something you would notice fuel spraying all over under the hood and leaking onto the ground. Not to mention the ability to smell raw gas.
