Default leaking fuel rail

I have a 96 grand caravan with 3.3l engine
It has been getting harder to start when its cold, found small gas leak off the fuel rail on the front side of engine. the leak is right at the crossover.
can i fix the leak, or do i just need to replace the whole fuel rail assemply to all 6 injectors?
and if so, how difficult is that, it doesnt look to bad, just remove upper intake and then the 2 bolts per side of the fuel rails?
thanks
matt

check with your dealer ...there was a recall on certain 3.3l fuel rails. Sometimes they replaced the whole rail and sometimes just a connector. It has been a common leak problem... I just had my 99 done.

There was a link I found in the dodge forum that put you right through to the DC net and let you enter your VIN and tell what recalls have or have not been done on your vehicle. Unfortunately I cannot put my finger on it easily, but it is there. Another common on for that year and model is the clockspring. Good luck.
