Question about 2002 Chrysler Town & Country

1 Answer

Fuel leaking from car

I ran over some tire rubber (not a hugh piece) on the hi-way. I could not steer clear of it so i tried to have it go under me. It got pick up under town and country van. I made it hime ok only to find out that fuel was pouring out of my van. It is leaking from about where the front seats are in a nice steady stream. I am guessing I broke my fuel line at that spot. I have not been able to take a good look underneath yet, but does that sound like what probably happened? If so how bad is that to fix? Would this be something that could be submitted to my insurance as well? It is kind of an accident.

You broke the fuel line. Bad thing is that you will have to replace the fuel line all the way to the tank. I know bad news. It will depend on who your Insurance carrier is but you can try since it is a not at fault incident.

    Yes it is, I would recommend taking it to a mechanic. One major reason. If you do it yourself and for some reason the leak continues you can be in serious trouble. If you understand what I am coming from. The price is about 225 to 500 dollars depending on your state and also the mechanic

Can you replace rear metal fuel line with a rubber fuel line on a 1995 buick centry v6


I had a Chev Corsica with V6. The fuel lines that ran straight fore and aft to/from fuel tank were metal. But where comes out of tank it was rubber. I'm assuming you've developed a pinhole leak in one of the metal fuel lines. I would suggest putting a "sleeve" of neoprene fuel line over the leak and clamp in place. This requires cutting the neoprene hose lengthwise so that you can slip it over the bad spot. Jut keep in mind that these fuel lines are under a bit of pressure.

What is the black cup looking thing that my fuel lines run to on the driver side of my 88 bronco 2 about midway from the back tire to the front of the truck because it is leaking fuel badly


Hi playerboy890,

The piece that you have described is the fuel pressure regulator,After you replace the fuel pressure regulator you will need to change the oil and filter due to contamination of excessive fuel into the oil pan.

Power steering , small leak..


It's difficult to say, as I have no Idea how handy you are. If it's just slowly leaking, hmm like say one drip every two seconds. Think of how long it would take to fill say...one cup. Probably a couple of hours. In that case you could drive half way, then stop to top it off.

Power steering fluid is pretty slippery stuff, so tape isn't going to work.

If you feel up to trying a patch: Get a small piece of rubber hose and cut it into a square. Depending on the hose size, I'd say a #10 hose clamp should do. Unscrew the hose clamp to release it from the threads. Carefully open it and place it around the hose and screw it back in a couple of turns. Then place the piece of rubber hose you cut over the top of the hose. Slide the hose clamp over it and tighten it down. Careful not to over tighten it and restrict the flow of steering fluid. If your unsure of yourself. Print this out and do a trial run on a round(ish) kitchen utensil handle, a brook handle, etc...

A small piece of hose and a #10 hose clamp should cost around $2.

Hope this helps.

Front end shacking when I run over small bump in road.


If it is still under warranty take it to the dealer. You could have at a minimum have thrown the weights off the tires. But anything like tie rod ends or belts in the tires could be bad.

89 jeep cherokee powersteering leak


Put a clean piece of cardboard, thin plywood, or whatever, under front tires, large enough to cover area under vehicle from front bumper to just behind front wheels. Start it with power steering full & crank wheels back & forth a few times. Monitor for drops of fluid on surface, to isolate problem area. may need to sit all night. Or take it in to shop, have them put on hoist & diagnose.
