SOURCE: fuel pump is loud and seems like engine is starved for fuel.

If its loud it might simply be a mounting problem. Other posibility is that the fuel filter badly needs replaced causing extra load on the pump and the suggested lack of fuel.

SOURCE: 92 accord lx leaking on fuel rail

Dont replace just one O ring on the injectors. You need to replace all when you replace them. It sounds like you still have O ring leaks.

SOURCE: i got gas leak coming from the fuel line

First off, what kind of vehicle do you have? I assume it is one that has an electric fuel pump in the gas tank, so that is what my answer will be geared to.
On the gas tank there are several lines. The most important ones for this conversation are the ones that deliver fuel to the engine and the one that returns the excess fuel back to the tank. They are usually different in size.
The larger one delivers the fuel and the smaller one returns the excess fuel back to the tank. Either one may be the culprit in this scenero.The tank is usually connected by a high pressure flexible fuel line to a stainless fuel line resembeling a brake line. At times this flex line may develope a leak for varrious reasons. It could be something rubbing against the line, it could be the crimped connection went bad and is leaking, etc. If it is your flex line, which it probably is there is a repair kit you can purchase to fix it. I have only been able to find this repair kit at NAPA. I've tried many auto parts stores and they are the only ones that carry it. The use of it is very simple actually. You find the leak in your line, which by the way is harder than it sounds and usually involves removing the gas tank. In which case you will need a special tool to disasemble the gas line from the tank. Once the leak is located you cut the line. You then have to place the remaining flex hose in boiling hot water for at least 10 seconds, which makes it soft and insert a splice fiting into it. When the line cools, it will shrink tight on the connector. You the do the same with the hose that came with the repair kit. Then do the same with the other end and install the fitting which connects to the gas tank. You should now be in business.
BTW. I have to do this very thing tomorrow.
Good Luck! and let me know if this helps you.

Started 6 months ago - ran out of gas at 1/4 tank, figured gage was bad, added gas no problem. Now runs out of fuel at any level afterr it warms up. Changed out fuel pump on frame rail, fuel filter, coil,...


do a check on the fuel pump in the gas tank, else replace a section of fuel line near the throttle body with a clear plastic line, if yu see any air bubble that is your problem, then its a problem of where the air is getting in, a fuel line can leak air in with no fuel leaking out, connect a fuel guage to the system and monitor it at different speeds, could be the pressure valve is faulty, just giving you a few things else to check

I have fuel leaking from the top of the gas tank where the fuel pump sits. Is this something I can fix?


Might be the gasket of the fuel pump, a corroded fuel line or corroded fuel tank. The solution is replace the gasket, the fuel line or fuel tank. If fuel tank starts leaking, and if you plug a hole today, another is doing to appear tomorrow. Replace it with a plastic one. You have to lift up the car and work from underneath.

Leaking Gas on left side of gas tank, can't tell if it's the line


More than likely you have a busted fuel line, or one of the connections from the fuel lines to the fuel pump is broken. If you know how to repair cars, drop the tank and find the leak. If you don't know how, have the vehicle towed to a shop. Driving the car would definitely be a fire hazard.

Fuel leaking from top of gas tank


sounds like you are going to have to drop the tank out to inspect and fix. with luck it will be leaking from the fuel pump seal or the return line.
Bad luck would be if the tank is rusted out and needs to be replaced.
Syphon as much gas out of the tank as you can before you drop it , gas is heavy.
