1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee fuel spilling?

Went to fill up tank when it was almost full gas was leaking from under car. Someone said it might be air in the line since I had replaced the gas cap with a generic cap. Have since replaced with genuine part, but gas is still leaking when ever I fill up the tank?

    Could it be a fuel pump issue?

It could be two things: the hose that is connected to the top of the tank has a hole in it or the tank itself has a hole

    no as long as the car is starting it is not a fuel pump issue if the hose is going to the tank is rubber get one that is gas fuel pressure tested and replace it but first of all back the car up on ramps secure the front end so it does not roll and get a creeper and roll underneath and you should be able to see where the leak is coming from

94 Grand Cherokee fuel tank leak


If it leaking from the top of the tank, and only when it is full of fuel, it could be the vent valve. Are you sure its not the filler tube ?

How to fix obd 2 PO456 on jeep grand cherokee laredo 2002


Usually this P0456 code is caused by an incorrect or faulty gas cap. Filling the fuel tank with the engine running could conceivable cause this code as well or if the cap wasn't properly tightened. Any of the following could also be the cause:
  • A small leak in any of the EVAP hoses or fuel tank hoses
  • A small leak in the purge valve or vent valve
  • The EVAP Canister may be leaking

Hi i just recently filled up my 94 jeep grand cherokke limited and now the gas light comes on and is showing that its on E....i dont understand whats the problem


Sounds like your float or sender unit in the tank is not registering the fuel level properly. They do go bad but the problem is the unit(fuel pump and sender) is one piece and has to be replaced together, unless you find someone willing to remove, separate and repair it.

Check engine light indicator is on...after total


Obviously you have something above the tank that's leaking. That will result in a code the same as a bad or loose gas cap. At this point, the only way you can find the source is to take a good look at everything, even if it means dropping the tank to do that. (better than wasting fuel or having a fire start under there).

How do you replace a fuel pump on 1994 jeep grand cherokee


Disconnect the battery, Jack the rear up on stable jack stands. use a smaller jack with a piece of wood to stable the load under the tank. You will see 2 band straps under the tank, remove the bolts, only 1 side have bolts, the other side swings down. The hose from the gas cap will have to be disconnected, which can be !!!!! when in-stalling. you can then drop the gas tank down easily with the jack just a bit, enough to reach around to unplug the fuel pump plug, and the gas lines. Once it's removed, the pump has a big screw on ring, take it off and the fuel pump can be pulled out.

My gas tank is significantly leaking only when almost full.


it could be that it has or is getting air in the tank in the form of vapors i know that it may seem unlikely but it does happen so next time that you go to fill up try opening up the tank cap while you go pay let ventilate and when you put the nozzle in do not shove it all the way in just enough for the vapor guard to cover the mouth and use the control of flow method.

Fuel Odor on a 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee


The evap system ( fuel vapor recovery system ) , if there is a leaky hose, can let fumes out that can be detected in the cab. If you "top off" the fuel at the pump you can spill fuel into the charcoal canister meant for fuel vapors only. the vapor recovery system is behind the left rear tire.

Usually if there is a hose leak a check engine light will come on.

If you TOP OFF, don't. If you don't, good. Hope this helps.
