This is on an Econoline van right? If so then to my way of thinking it could be one or two things. Most likely is a leaking fuel line, or your fuel filter is not seated properly, or the fuel filter has developed a leak.
Oh thats three things, if your driving the car just start it in Park and try to locate the leak, if your lucky you may have to push the fuel filter into its connection till it is tight, eliminating the leak. Otherwise you may need to replace some fuel line which you may not want to do, shouldn't be to expensive to ask a mechanic.

Locate fuel filter on 1999 gmc yukon


The fuel filter should be on the inner frame rail on the left side of the truck.This is the drivers side on the inner frame about the center of the truck.Just follow the fuel lines.If your not sure of what it looks like then first go and buy a filter then when you look under the truck you will see it.Make sure and relieve the fuel pressure be for removing the filter.You can do this by removing the fuel pump fuse from the under hood fuse center and start the vehicle.Let it run til it quits.Then shut the key off and this should relieve the pressure from the fuel lines.You will still have some fuel in the lines but it should not spray all over.Hope this helps.Good luck.

I need a diagram of the fuel line from the engine to the tank on my 1994 dodge dakota, so i can find a gas leak


There is no such diagram available. You will simply have to follow the fuel lines from the fuel rail on the engine along the truck frame rail towards the tank, or from the fuel tank along the truck frame rail towards the fuel rail on the engine. Some are on the left side frame rail and some are on the right side frame rail, depending on which engine your vehicle is equipped with. You simply have to LOOK.

How to replace a sway bar end links to a 94 intrepid



REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

The rear suspension on LH platform vehicles is a fully independent suspension. A stabilizer bar (also called a sway bar) is mounted in rubber isolator bushings and connects the rear struts through links. Note that the fuel tank must be removed to remove the stabilizer bar.

CAUTION OFF. The fuel system pressure must be relieved before disconnecting any fuel lines. Failure to do so may result in fire and/or personal injury.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Relieve the fuel system pressure.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  3. Remove both rear wheels.

  1. Position a transmission jack under the fuel tank just forward of the crossmember to help support the fuel tank when crossmember is removed.
  2. Remove the four crossmember to frame rail attaching bolts. Remove the fuel tank.
  3. Remove the stabilizer bar to link assembly attaching nuts and remove the bar and isolator bushings as an assembly from the vehicle. Inspect the isolator bushings for damage or excessive wear and replace, if necessary.

To install:
  1. Inspect for broken or distorted retainers and bushings. If bushing replacement is required, replacement bushings can be installed by locating the split in the bushing, prying open and removing the defective bushing from around the stabilizer bar.
  2. Install the stabilizer bar and isolator bushings back into the vehicle as an assembly making sure bar is centered in vehicle so it doesn't contact other suspension components.
  3. Install stabilizer bar attaching link onto stabilizer bar. Install new link to bar attaching nuts and tighten to 70 ft. lbs. (95 Nm).

Replace the sway bar bracket bolt with new after loosening or removing them. Only use original equipment bolts as replacements.
  1. Install the fuel tank back onto the vehicle.
  2. Position the crossmember on frame rails and install four mounting bolts. Tighten attaching bolts to 70 ft. lbs. (95 Nm).
  3. Remove transmission jack from under the fuel tank.
  4. Install the rear wheels and lug nuts. Tighten the lug nuts, in a star pattern sequence, to 95-100 ft. lbs. (129-135 Nm).
  5. Lower the vehicle. Reconnect the negative battery cable.
  6. Pressurize the fuel system and check for leaks.
  7. Check and reset the rear wheel toe to specifications as required.

What does code po442 means on a 2004 chevy blazer


This code is for the evaporative emission system.The po442 means there is a small vapor leak in the system.The module does several checks during the time you operate your vehicle and monitors the fuel tank pressure sensor Hope this helps.Good luck.for leaks.When it sees a leak it will kick on the check engine light after it fails a certain amount of times.this does not mean there is fuel leaking out and you will not smell any fuel either.The repair shops have a special tool called a smoke machine that will help them find the leak when they pressurize the system.The usual culprit is the vent valve but this does not mean it can`t be something else.I checked bulletins and found one for your vehicle that says there could be a fracture in the filler neck of the fuel tank.This does not mean that your vehicle has a fracture in it but that it should be checked because it could have one in it.This means they have seen this problem in these vehicles.This will not hurt the vehicle or leave you stranded but it should be repaired.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Where is the fuel filter on my 1999 chevy silverado 5.3


Hello, your fuel filter is mounted inside of the frame almost directly under the driver's seat. I recommend changing it every 10,000 miles. This is more frequent than the manual, but I believe it keeps the fuel system more efficient.

Is there an access panel to the fuel pump on a 2002 ford excursion


FOR DIESELS=The fuel pump is located on the frame rail on the drivers side of 2002 and newer models for sure. Some older models locate them above the fuel tanks and are a pain to get to. if you slide under the vehicle just behind the drivers door look up into the drivers side frame rail on the side of the frame rail that is closer to the center of the vehicle. it is wraped in a black foam boot and it has wires coming from it. you can see the fuel line coming out of either end. One leading back to the tank and one going towards the engine. fuel pumps on older models is located on top of the fuel tank. You must drop the tank in order to get to it FOR GAS= Check the frame rail. If not, so..sorry it's above the gas tank

AN AUTO TECH USING A DIAGNOSTIC MACHINE GOT A CODE PO442, FOR A SMALL EVAP EMMISSION CONTROL SYSTEM LEAK AROUND 11.26.08 ON MY 2003 HYUNDAI ACCENT. WHAT KIND OF COST CAN I EXPECT TO REPAIR THIS?


This DTC (P0442) depends on what caused the code to set. Most times it's simply a loose fuel cap or the O-ring on the fuel cap is damaged OR dirt got between the O-ring and the mating surface of the fuel filler tube. There are numerous possible causes for the DTC you have -- Fuel cap, pin hole in fuel system (evap hoses, fuel tank, fuel cap), canister close valve leaking, fuel tank pressure sensor malfunction, purge control solenoid valve malfunction, etc.
BEST SOLUTION: Take the vehicle into a Hyundai Service Center (dealership), pay the diagnostic fee. They will tell you EXACTLY what the problem is and what's needed to fix it (parts, labor, tax, time-frame, etc.). If you perfer to try and fix it yourself, Go to http://www.hmaservice.com/ and register (vehicle by VIN). Afterward, you'll have access to technical information (manuals, wiring diagrams, service bulletins, etc) about your vehicle.
