I have a gas leak on my 2007 malibu maxx i was told i need a fuel pump how is that possible


GM had a fuel pump module problem back in those years where the plastic broke , where the delivery hose hooked up to . This caused a substantial leak ,you can't really see the broke part till you drop the tank . I don't know if this was a problem on Malibu's ,I saw this on cobalt's . There was a Factory recall on some ! With a TSB - technical service bulletin ! I'd have a second opinion , call the dealer also .

The hose is on the side of the gas cap and it runs down to the bottom of the quarter panel. When I filled the gas tank up, gas comes out of this hose. We just had the fuel pump replaced. Its not leaking...


There are normally two hose lines from the fuel filler that run to the tank. The larger one carries the fuel from the nozzle to the tank. The smaller one is a vent hose that allows vapors to leave the top of the tank while filling. These vapors come back to the nozzle area and can be vented and/or collected by the nozzle depending upon air pollution standards in your area. If your second hose is running to the bottom of the quarter panel, it is probably the vent hose that may not have been reconnected at the top of the tank when the fuel pump was replaced. The fuel running down there is from kickback fuel at the time the pump shuts off. The real problem is that the vent line is open on top of the tank and when the tank is full, that can allow vapors and fuel to escape out of there and it could contact hot exhaust areas - a major fire or explosion hazard. Have this inspected and repaired IMMEDIATELY.

MY CAR SMEELS LIKE GAS IN THE BACK SEAT SOMETIMES I DONT THINK THE GAS TANK ITS LEAKING WHAT ELSE COULD IT BE?


Sounds like your fuel lines are leaking, These are located on top of the fuel tank, There is 4 lines that come from the pump . One may have rubbed a hole in the return line and getting fumes inside the auto.If so these have to be replaced by removing fuel tank and removing fuel lines. Good luck to you.

Gas leak on 1999 Isuzu Rodeo under neath the truck in front of the spare tire. What is the major problem and how much will it cost to repair?


If it is coming from on top of the gas tank, then you will need to inspect the fuel pump plumbing for a leak. It may be as simple as replacing the rubber gas lines.

My 1997 Rodeo had a leak coming from on top of the tank. After checking it out with a flashlight and a mirror, I discovered that the metal tube that runs down into the tank had rotted. Unfortunately, the metal tube was part of the fuel pump assembly and the entire fuel pump had to be replaced.

You can expect tp pay about $350 for a fuel pump from Autozone. I found one on Ebay (used from a junk yard) and replaced it myself for under $50.

Before you buy anything, make sure you identify the source of the leak. Like I said, it may just be a hose replacement.

Theres a gas tank leak comining from the top of the gas tank. what could this be /


Not knowing your milage or what part of the country you live in if they use salt on the roads. The leak is coming form the three fuel lines going into the gas tank and fuel pump. The fuel pump is inside of the gas tank secured by a large slip ring seal. From the years gone by these lines rust and since they are under pressure they will leak through. You will have to drop your gas tank to get to this. This is a ugly all day expensive job. Replace the fuel pump which comes with the new seal and fuel lines assembly. I could sit here and tell you the step by step procedure but that will take hours. The very best thing you can do is buy a Haynes repair manual for your car and year at any auto parts store @ Advanced, Autozone. Read the step by step in the manual. I have used these for 40 years with all my vehicles and saved tons of cash in labor costs. Be prepared to replace the gas tank straps and additional fuel lines depending on how bad the rust is.
Good luck and thanks for your question and I hope my suggestions help. Don't forget to rate me.

Sounds like one of the lines from the fuel pump is leaking. They come attached to the fuel filter. Replace the fuel filter.

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.
