Question about 1990 Toyota 4Runner
I can smell the fuel inside the car when its running even when the windows and doors are shut. any idea where it is coming from? tnx
My experience with this particular issue leads me to believe that you probably have a rusted fuel line or lines at the top of the fuel tank, assuming that the fuel lines are OK under the vehicle. This is a very common problem. There is a bracket there that holds the fuel pump inside the tank, and the fuel lines that are welded to the top of this device are wont to develop pin-holes over time and age. Very noticable when driving, most likely the line going to the engine is the culprit. Get under the vehicle and see if there is wetness at the top of the tank. If so, you will need to drop the fuel tank and replace the fuel pump bracket. I hope that this helps you solve your problem.

P0443 The fuel vapor canister reduces that gas smell on hot days outside/inside of car. The fuel vapor canister fillers bad smells from gas tank on hot days when the gas expands and burps fumes through carbon canister filter. From the canister (gas vapor fumes) goes back into the engine to be burned again...it's a closed loop for vapors to be recycled though engine. Don't worry, once the carbon canister dries out and no longer flooded with raw fuel the code should go away...just don't let the top off fuel tank back flow into the 'Evap emission control' carbon filter near the top and close to the gas cap...:)
