    Also when I got home, there was a gurgeling sound coming from the gas tank area and fumes smelled a little weird.

Most vehicles have a seal where the filler tube connects to the fuel tank. Could be leaking here or it could be a something as small as a pin hole in the filler neck or tank. However fuel fumes are highly combustible. and something as simple as static discharge can start a major fire. In this case I would take it to a shop where they can put it on a lift and find the leak because of it's location.

Why is gas leaking out my Evap fresh air hose every time i try to put gas in my car and start it


I suspect you are OVERFILLING your tank...

There should be a direct connection from your canister to the top of the fill tube. It is intended to safely draw out gas fumes.

even if you don't OVERFILL... gasoline can expand (coming from the cold ground... into a nice warm car) enough to repeat the symptoms you have depicted.

Try putting in less gas...

Things will most probably resolve themselves... otherwise you might need a new canister.

Be safe... DO NOT OVERFILL.

Filling up with fuel may be a coincidence to your problem, or you may have purchased contaminated fuel.

The check engine light will log a "Fault Code" in the vehicles on board computer which may help you diagnose the problem.

A fuel leak, if present, is a serious concern and until you determine if the vehicle is leaking fuel you should not drive it.

Carburetor backfire and antifreeze leaking under the car


first up check that you have put the spark plug leads on the correct plugs in the firing order as back firing comes from having 2 leads crossed. Have a pressure test done on the coolant system to find the leak . If it just started after the back firing I suspect that the inlet manifold may be corroded at the water cross over section and the back firing may have loosened the gasket enough for the leak to mstart

RE: 1991 Mercedes Benz 500SL... when I put gas in the tank it doesnt leak until I start the car & then it leaks profusely underneath the rear passenger side.


Hi there. The reason it only leaks when you turn the car on is because the gas tank is pressurized, but only after the car has had a chance to pressurize the tank (when the car is turned on). To fix this, you need a new gas tank! Alex

My car leaking fuel only time it seems to leak is when its on a slanted surface , when ever i put gas in the car it doesnt leak out when i run the car it will start to leak... and seems to make my gas tank...


You may have a hole on your tank that at certain car position and how the tank is filled up your gas comes out of that hole. The gas may also coming out of the fixed holes of the tank such us the outlet for the fuel lines. You may want to check on that while inspecting the tank

Gas leaking on top of tank


its most likely either broke the seal on the halfway of the tank or the fill spout has become damaged and needs replacement. id start by testing the pressure of the tank then deciphering whether or not its the tank or the fill spout.
