Not really. If you can find the leak.Run the tank down till it's about half full.Take some sand paper and sand the area where the whole is.Then take you some JB Weld and repair it,I've did it with great success.I've not had a problem with it leaking but make sure you sand it really good and take some carbureator and choke spray and clean it after you finish sanding it.

Gas gauge not reading gas and gas light stays on why


Hi,there is a float sensor in the fuel tank if its stuck with the float at the bottom of the tank the light will stay on,so to find out if the sender is falty just look at the fuel tank for two connectors undo the two wires and join them together the turn ignision on and see if the gage now runs up to full,if it gose to full then replace the sender in the tank.
hope was some help.

1987 Nissan Maximum gas hand doesn't work & transmission is reading full but it leaks sometimes


There are three fixes possible for the gas gauge....but I would have this troubleshot by a garage:

1. The gas gauge itself does not work anymore. It could have just finally "died". Problem is, you cannot replace just the gauge. It has to be the whole instrument cluster. Having a garage shoot power TO the gauge and then shot the gauge itself will let you know if the gauge assembly is bad.

2. The fuel sending unit is bad. This means the wiring to the gas tank fuel pump/sending unit is bad and does not work. The signal is not being sent to the fuel/gas gauge. This means the fuel pump assembly needs replacing.

3. There is a wire problem somewhere between the gas tank and the dash to the fuel gauge.

The transmission leaking but still reading full just means that there is plenty of transmission fluid in the transmission. The drips or spots you are finding are not enough to "read" low enough. Unless you have a HUGE spot of tranny fluid left on the ground, I would just think about a transmission fluid filter change. This way, a new pan gasket will be installed and fresh fluid filled to the proper level will be accomplished on your car.

Why does my 04 caravan drink a lot of gas?


Your fuel sending unit in tank is bad,may be incorparated with fuel pump or by itself.Car isn't going to drink gas that fast unless leaking.If tank reads a half,fill up to see if it's really half empty,and if it is half full,then your driving a gas hog.

05 LR3 w/ 96,000 miles. Fuel Gauge dropped to empty on a full tank and gas light came on. Fuel Gauge is not reading at all anymore, just reads as empty. What parts do I need to fix this? Sender...


Repair is a major job involving dropping the fuel tank, a messy and dirty and dangerous job. It will take you at least one full Saturday to do this job if everything goes right and you have the proper parts. My free advice to you is to fill your tank every 200 miles and forget about the fuel gauge.

Idles runs really rough can smell fuel


1. Could be changing the fuel filter
2. Leaking injector
3. The gas cap (tank gas input) is clogged - Gas tank does need some air
4. Pressure check you gas line - should be in the 20s and hold steady for hours. Could be slow leak

Low Fuel Pressure on Landrover Freelander TD4


From 53 reg onwards, diesel pump is under R.H. rear wheel arch, hidden by the plastic wheel arch liner. Older versions have combined fuel pump/sender in the tank (under R.H part of rear seat).
You should be able to hear a faint purr from the pump when ignition is turned on but engine not yet running.

Leaking moonroof onto passenger floor


There are gasket replacement kits at local auto parts stores. It's time consuming but well worth it. Prior to starting, inspect the tracks with the moonroof open. There's a chance you have a burr or some other kind of obstruction in the track preventing the roof from properly closing/sealing. A 3 year old vehicle really shouldn't leak from a worn gasket but if the gasket were defective it's possible.
