If you replaced the cap, I would say that you damaged the filler pipe, or vapor recovery line.. It is allowing air to get in the system, This system is pressurized. You may want to inspect that. Your filler pipe may be gone at the tank itself. Have a closer look and smell as you are under there. Also look for any wet spots. Good luck. Please rate solution. Cheers from Nova Scotia!!

If you facing a little black smoke along with it your engine is running a little rich. Black smoke indicates unburned fuel and this could cause a black stain and leading to test failure

Your best bet is to invest in a Chilton book on your specific vehicle. It will give you pictures and exact directions on how to do this. All Checkers or what ever auto service center you have in your town will carry them. Just a useful warning though - don't buy knock off's just buy the Chilton. Good rule of thumb ALWAYS put it in the same way you took it out. Good luck!!!!

SOURCE: how do I replace the right front fender on my 2000

Need to remove the inside wheel liner to reveal all 13mm securing bolts. The front bumper needs to be the first part removed. It easy so don't fear easily. TIP: If you have a pressure washer, wash down the areas clean with simple green, it would be less trauma working on it. I do that even if it's a simple oil change, less cosmolyn (rust proofing) to deal with.

P0455 Evaporative emmission control leak (gross leak). Here is the main possiblity the gas cap is out, or you filled up the fuel tank with the car running, because its a large leak you can visually inspect the fuel refill hose, If you have a shop that can inspect this for you they can find it .

How do you remove the rear fenders on a 2001 vw beetle do you have to drop the gas tank?

no the gas tank has nothing to do with it ..first thing is that the two rear fenders and rear bumper cover are bolted together and must be removed as a unit. First thing remove the inner fenders on both of the rear tires then look up and remove the T30 torq bolts and 10mm nuts on bottom the brake light housings must be removed from inside of the trunk there are 2 covers in the corners pop them out and ther will be a plastic knob remove taking care not to drop them then pop out lights with a small flat tip screwdriver unplug lights then take loose the gas door screw and remove clip holding the latch then pull out latch taking care to not break it. then remove all the screws on the outside under the rear deck lid T30 torq .gently pull on fenders and pull off the rear fender/bumper cover assembly taking care to not pull out oo far then take off 8mm nuts from heat shield on left backup lamp and unplug lights ..there u go the all u have to do is unblot the fenders and ur good to go

My 2007 Chrysler Sebring will not pass smog check . It has 74, 000 miles on it. PQ457 Evaporative Emission System Leak (fuel cap loose/off) PQ455 Evaporative Emission System Leak (large leak) PQ456 ...

This depends on the problem , like a bad gas cap is not covered but so what a cap is cheap, take it to dealer and let them fix it for free or very cheap. most of the time its a valve, purge valve or vent valve, these are covered, take it before you hit 80,000. good luck.

Gas smell inside car and when refueling it constantly stops like the tank were full

beetles have what they call a "positive pressure"gas tank(the vent is in the cap)and it has a restriction in the filler to stop fuel leaking out if the car overturns.So if you try to put too much fuel in it will kickback and fill the recess in the fender.hence smell in car after refilling.......

Hello how are you? I was wondering if you could assist/guide me?

There is a electric solenoid to pull the cable removing the pin to open the lid when the button at the driver door is activated. But this is known for unreliable due to the design. In order to release the lid manually, you can pull the trim panel in the trunk at the right side to get the mechanism releasing the cable. Back yard mechanics should be able to replace the solenoid, but instead let them fabricate a handle at the luggage area to manually release the lid. This will be cheaper and more reliable.
