Question about Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder

2 Answers

2001. I suspect there is a hole in the fuel line??...but really don't know. It smells like fresh gas sometimes when it's running AND, if I accelerate too quickly I hear this airy-sucking sound. Like a Swissssshhh. What could it be?

You should probably replace the fuel line. I have a 2002 eclipse and it did the same thing, but stopped when we replaced the line. Hope this helps!

Car Fuel Smell


You rubbed through the fuel tank or cracked it and it has a small leak. They make a fuel tank repair kit you can by a a auto parts store some times they work and sometimes they don't. If gas is spraying or leaking on the exhaust you could have a fire. I have drained a tank and put a screw with a fiber washer in the hole and then covered it with a 1/2 inch if silicone rubber it lasted for 5 years. Your fuel lines and filter are usually up on the side of the frame and should be ok
