No theres not a valve for smells, it usually means that when your tank is empty, it smells bad because most likely your running on water and gas, which causes a bad smell, a good way to fix it, is to pour a bottle of a subtence called HEAT, thats what it says on the bottle, then just pour all of it in your gas tank and what it does is make all the water that may be in your gas tank dissapear.. hope this helps...and if it doesn't that usually means that you should replace your fuel fillter.

2002 ford taurus smell gas when the outside temperature is over 80 degrees


Fuel tanks have a vent tube and a charcoal cannister to capture the gas fumes from the tank. It's possible there is a cracked or loose hose, faulty fuel cap, bad canister or a fuel leak and any one of many connections. Investigate for sign of raw fuel along the underside of te vehicle, and in the engine compartment. Attempt to follow the smell to isolate the location of a leak.

Gas fumes coming from behind back tire below fuel tank door?


No hose on the overflow hole.
The cap should click when it is tight.
You may be smelling the vapor canister which is doing its job.
The fuel tank system is sealed so the computer opens a valve from time to time to vent the tank thru the canister. It may be in the engine compartment or around the fuel tank.
If there is a problem with the fuel tank vent system the check engine light should come on.

check the hoses in your fuel tank and the fuel tank itself. hoses might already been worn out or the tank has some leaks.

2002 ford taurus check engine lite code is po460, a mechanic replaced the fuel pump, still didn't pass inspection......please help!


I am going to paste a list of potential causes for a p0460. There is a cure for a dirty reader card and Ford recommends CHEVRON TECHRON fuel system cleaner. Run tank low, put in cleaner, use best gas you can find,avoid your frequent brand.

P0460 - Fuel Level Sensor Circuit Malfunction The PCM monitors the fuel level input (FLI) circuit for electrical failure. The test fails when the signal moves outside the minimum or maximum allowable calibrated parameters for a specified fuel fill percentage in the fuel tank. Empty fuel tank

Incorrectly installed fuel gauge
Damaged instrument cluster

CSE GND shorted to VPWR
Monitor FLI PID and FLI V PID in key ON engine RUNNING. FLI PID at 25% fill (with non matching fuel gauge) and FLI V PID less than 0.90 volts [for FLI PID at 75% fill (with non matching fuel gauge) and FLI V PID greater than 2.45 volts] indicates a hard fault.
