Gas is spilling from under the gas cap 2001 Chevy 3500

I changed the fuel pump today on my 3500. After we got everything put back together the truck wouldn't start for a bit. I finally got it started and then while I was driving down I was flagged down bc fuel was spilling out from under my gas cap in waves. What is causing this problem and how can I fix it?

    I think the piece that connects the vapor lines was broken when the fuel pump was being put on. It was sealed off. Could this have something to do with it?

CHECK YOUR FUEL LINES AND MAKE SURE THERE ARE TIGHT AND DONT HAVE ANY HOLES IN THEM BECAUSE WHEN THIS OCCURED DID YOU HAVE TO KEEP PUMPIN THE GAS? IF SO YOU MIGHT HAVE TO DROP YOUR GAS TANK AGAIN AND MAKE SURE EVERTHING IS CONNECTED PROPERLY

Did you change the fuel filter or bleed the injector lines? You need to get that gas out of the system if you haven't already. Once the filter is changed and filled with diesel I would loosen the injector lines and crank the engine until the gas is cleared out of the lines. Tighten the lines and see what happens.

How do you change the fuel pump on a 1998 chevy malibu 3.1 L V-6?


you have to remove the fuel tank, unhooking everything attached to it, drag it out from under the car, and unlock the fuel pump locking ring with a hammer and punch. Empty the gas out, replace, put the tank back the way it was, and put the gas back in. You should then be ready to go.

Wont turnover like starving for gas


? fuel pump? when u turn the key have someone listen near the gas cap area for a small motor coming on. No sound, means it has to do with the fuel pump. check ur fuses under the hood for the fuel pump. i know u can also check the fuel line coming up to the engine(be carefull when disconnecting, if working properly gas will shoot out), if no gas comes out, u aren't getting the pressure u need. This happened to me before. Had to replace fuel pump.
have u had problems with oxygen censors, or fuel injector before?

2001 chevy 3500 van Fuel pump out?


1st ensure the fuses are all good and there is fuel in the vehicle and your not getting a false reading by tapping on the tank ..does it sound Hollow oe Empty / another way is turn on the key and listen for the pump to work a slight humming should be heard ...if so locate the fuel bar and cap screw depress the valve shielding your eyes with say a towell and see if gas dispurses make sure the key is on while doing this if no gas is there or fuel pump is heard then it may be either a bad ground to the unit or the fuel pump itself corroded connections will contribute to this as well unclipping and reclipping the connection togeather should allow a better connection
