How do I change the fuel tank gasket on the Rav 4 to stop fuel leakage


wow no YEAR stated, not that is a challenge. nor country !!!
the FSM covers this job. read the FSM yet"?
The official Toyota factory service manual. covers this.!
it should be obvious. right?
to change it , (you never stated it) tanks have lots of seal points.
not just ONE
what is "IT"?
my wildest guess is the pump flange base (not sender flanges or vent parts )
on most cars,
car on level ground, battery net lug, so wifey-pooo dont turn key and BOOM.
out doors, no inside , lots of fresh air, no change of siphoning, accidents... we.
drain tank (100s of posts for this , 1000s, world wide) youtube to max.
drop tank.
remove leaking flange,
remove gasket
put in new gasket. (oh,my all this is rusted to H3LL)
put back flange and set torque to FSM spec.
up tank,
fill tank
done..
some cars, and some exact specific BODIES have hidden access port to said flange.

short and 10x more accurate answer.
login to alldata.com
read chapter on topic, fuel pump?
bingo you can fish.

never guess what is wrong, look, first.
no all things are easy, like a simple gasket failure.
only fate wins. rust tops list.

Tip

Turbocharger installation


In order to avoid any possible damage while installing your turbocharger or premature operating problems, either of which could invalidate the warranty, please follow these simple intructions carefully and completely.
1) Ascertain why the old unit failed, you don't want the same problem to recur and damage the new unit.
2) check for cleanliness. the smallest particles of dirt can do irrevocable damage to a turbocharger so check engine intake/exhaust and aftercooler systems for cleanliness and obstructions, carefully removing oil, pieces of gasket, dust, dirt and other debris. Replace the air filter.
3) Check the oil inlet and oil drain flanges are clean and free from obstruction, internal carbon and sludge, removing them to clean if necessary. if in doubt replace with new.
4) Replace the oil and filetr
5) Check that manifold casting is not cracked on the outside or breaking internally.
6)Mount the turbocharger on the exhaust flange checking that turbine inlet gasket fits correctly to give a gas tight seal.
7) Connect the oil drain pipe using gasket supplied - do not use any liquid gasket products.
8) Fill the tubocharger oil feed hole with clean engine oil and rotate the rotor by hand.
Finally connect all external fitting to the turbocharger. Start the engine and idle for few minutes, check the oil is not leaking and the warning sign does not come up, check all connection for possible leaks using soapy water.

Car starts but as soon as I press on the gas the car stalls


Just on the off chance, Be careful that this is not a leaky battery, this fluid is a corrosive acid and will burn and eat away at anything it touches.
Some quick things to check...
Check you have plenty of gas in the tank, and check the gas tank air vent for blockages.
Check the Air inlet and Air filter for any obvious obstructions
Check your exhaust pipe for obstructions

Maybe its a choke problem, or some other carburetor problem.

How to change a fuel pump in a 1998 oldsmobile regency


JACK UP REAR OF CAR AND SUPPORT WITH JACK STANDS. STANDS SHOULD BE PLACED UNDER REAR DOORS AT FOLDED SHEET METAL, AKA ROCKER PANEL. MAKE SURE TO GIVE ENOUGH ROOM FOR REMOVAL OF TANK WITH FUEL TANK ON JACK. REMOVE THE HOSE CONNECTING TANK TO FILLER CAP TUBE. SIPHON OUT ALL THE FUEL YOU CAN. NEXT, SUPPORT TANK IN MIDDLE USING A PIECE OF PLYWOOD OR OTHER THIN MATERIAL TO DISTRIBUTE WEIGHT OVER A GREATER AREA OF TANK TO KEEP JACK FROM BENDING IT TOO BAD.RAISE JACK AND APPLY GENTLE PRESSURE ON TANK. 2 METAL STRAPS HOLD TANK IN PLACE. EACH HAS A NUT ON ONE END. RENOVE NUT, SLIGHTLY LOWER TANK WITH STRAPS BENT OUT OF WAY. NOW DISCONNECT ELECTRICAL PLUG FOR FUEL SENDING UNIT, USUALLY GREEN WITH A FEW WIRES.DISCONNECT ANY OTHER HOSES, PRESSURE HOSE AND RETURN HOSE AND VENT HOSE. PRESSURE HOSE AND RETURN HOSE MAY TAKE A SPECIAL TOOL. YOU CAN CHECK AHEAD OF TIME AT PART STORE. CAREFULLY LOWER TANK. WHERE LINES CAME FROM TANK THERE IS A ROUND FLANGE THAT HAS PLACES FOR A FLATHEAD SCREWDRIVER TO PUSH AGAINST TO ROTATE. USUALLY 4 STICKING UP. YOU WILL ALSO SEE THE FLANGE HAS RAMP LIKE PLACES GOING UNDER TABS ON TANK, THESE ALLOW THE FLANGE TO SORT OF SCREW INTO TANK AND SQUISH SEAL TO KEEP GAS FROM LEAKING OUT. ROTATE FLANGE COUNTER CLOCKWISE BT HAMMERING ON SCREWDRIVER AGAINST ONE OF THE 4 TABS OF THE FLANGE, GO AS FAR AS YOU CAN AND MOVE TO THE NEXT TAB IF IT GETS DIFFICULT TO ROTATE.REMOVE WHOLE SENDING UNIT WITH SEAL. DEPENDING ON WHAT YOU WERE SOLD AT PARTS HOUSE CHANGE OUT PARTS AND SEAL AND REINSTALL, SOUNDS HARDER THAN IT IS . WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT IT, IT'S ONLY 2 NUTS AND A COUPLE OF HOSES.

Oil and Coolant leak of about 11/2 quarts coolant - 1/2 quart oil per night Leak 1 (Coolant) Appears to be coming from the radiator bottom right corner. Leak 2 (oil) Appears to be coming from the engine...


The passenger right side of the car doesn't have any flanges for cooling system, if that's correct then your radiator has a leak or puncture.

The driver side of vehicle has both the in and out flanges for the radiator. Very common to see leak at the drain valve leaking (not closed tightly). In the same area would be bottom flange of radiator which the composite flange is degrading and causing the leak.

The middle part of the bottom engine compartment is where your oil/coolant cooler assembly just above the oil filter. A loose oil filter could be the cause 95% of the time and 5% would be a bad o-ring from the oil cooler to the oil filter flange.

LEAK ON BOTTOM OF FUEL TANK


One of the hoses to the tank must be the source of the leak....drop the tank down again and look to see if you can tell wich hose it is coming from. You may have to dry off the fuel so you can see where fresh fuel is leaking from, try not to inhalt too much of it and do this outside. Also beware of any sources of ignition- no bonfires today, ok? Good luck

AIR LEAK IN TOYOTA COROLLA FUEL TANK


Best bet is to replace gas tank. It could hae a hairline fracture somewhere. Sounds like pretty much everything else was replaced already.

Oil cooler seal


There are two items that can be leaking oil there. There is a gasket between the oiler cooler flange (the item attached to the engine), and the rubber gasket/seal that goes between the cooler and the flange. (the latter is the one that leaks most often as most oil change shops over tighten the oil filter).
I just replaced the gasket between the cooler and flange recently. I chose to do it quick and dirty: 1. remove oil filter 2. remove oil filter nipple (the portion you screw the filter onto) 2a. you'll need a deep well socket to get the bolt that holds the cooler tight (I believe 27mm)
2b. pull down the cooler, Grab the nipple with a pair of pliers between the flange and cooler and loosen/remove
3. remove old gasket/seal and clean surface 4. put new seal/gasket in place 5. re-seat the nipple back in. use the pliers method, just make sure you don't scar the threads where you NEED them( you don't need all of them). 6. put some gasket sealer (oil friendly) on the gasket and make sure its in place 7. tighten oil cooler onto flange with large nut and socket 8. replace oil filter and add oil as needed.
it is a tight working area, expect some scrapped knuckles, but it isn't too difficult.
good luck
