Some tanks have a fitting(s) molded into the tank, and filler attaches with a short piece of hose & clamps, others have a seal that filler pipe slides into for a tight fit. If it's the seal type & you can't pinpoint where leak is, you may have to pull filler out. Usually screws behind gas tank filler door, and out it comes but take a close look for anything else that may be holding it. You may have to twist & wiggle a bit but it should come. Inspect seal & tubes for nicks etc. If you have to re-use old seal, clean good, lube it & lube filler pipe before inserting back in to eliminate more nicks, and helps go in easier.Twist slightly going in too, makes it easier & helps reduce seal damage.

2002 Lincoln ls has a gas leak when I go to the gas station and put 15$ or more gas starts rushing out not all of it maybe 5$ worth which is enough and as I drive it today I see a small leak


I can see your picture that you posted. Each tank can usually only leak from a few places. The filler tube, the overfill tube, the fuel line going in, the fuel line going out, or a seam in a metal tank. Also, seeing as how A lot of pumps are made of plastic, it could be leaking from there also. As I stated before there is also a rubber O-ring between the pump and the tank which could also leak. Other than that, that is it, unless there is a hole in the tank. Please be cautious

How to replace fuel tank filler tube?


Brother John, you've removed as much as you can for access to the filler. Remove the hose clamps/bands that secure the fill tube and vent tube and then remove the screws around the gas cap that secure the fill tube to the body. With the gas cap off, go below and pull the hose and filler neck down and work the hoses lose with a pair of channel lock pliers and sticking a screwdriver between the metal tube and hose to break the seal. Put on the new filler neck and stick it back up in the body and put the screws back in. THEN put the hose clamps back up and tighten them, put the gas cap back on and your done.

Where is the fue pump located on an 97 buick lesaber


The fuel pump is located inside the fuel tank. If you have a major leak, there are a few things it could be. The filler tube you put gas into during a fill-up goes directly to the fuel tank. The filler tube may have a hole in it; If your tube is rubber, the clamp at the fuel tank may need replaced; you may have a fuel line leaking near the fuel tank, The fuel tank may have a hole in it. A fuel leak is a hazardous situation, so take extra precautions to be safe and have it repaired asap.

Fuel leaks from filler pipe to gas tank


You don't need to replace the gas tank, the filler pipe is connected to a rubber hose which connects to the tank with clamps at each end.

Evaporative emmission control system large leak detected


that can be something as simple as a bad or loose gas cap ... the cap must seal in order to develop a slight vacuum in the tank thats is used by the emmission control system. less likely but possible is damage to the several hoses that go from the tank to the evaporation control system in the engine compartment..
check your gas cap for damaged or missing rubber seal .. or just replace it ... clean the filler tube if needed so that the gas cap will seal properly .. check the flex hose (if any) from the filler nozzle to the tank ...
