Besides the O ring you replaced, is there an o ring or gasket any other place around the filter, if not, it might be a cracked block

SOURCE: diesel is leaking from the top of my fuel filter

Sounds like a crack has formed where the water sensor wires inter the canister. You may take it off and try some JB weld on the inside around the electrodes. Not sure what exact model you have but anyway look at it and see.

SOURCE: gas leaking from charcoal canister after i changed fuel filter, pump, clean egr change egr solenoid. ????

The canister got loaded for a reason, what that may be is hard to track down, let it dry out and see if it happens again. This can be caused by over filling the fuel tank i.e. topping off.

WHAT DO SMELLING GAS FROM A 2001 CHEVY MEANS


First of if you have a history of topping off your gas tank STOP doing that .The gas tank is designed to have an air pocket in it.By topping it off you could be sucking raw gas instead of gas vapor into your charcoal canister which will saturate the canister and then you will have to replace it.You may have a leak in the fuel line somewhere Has the fuel filter been changed and maybe left lose or missing the O ring and last possibly a leaking fuel injector

Where is the fuel filter on 1999 dodge ram 1500


Open the hood of the Dodge Ram and locate the fuel canister located against the firewall of the vehicle. There is a yellow handle next to the canister that has a hose attached to it. Place the bucket underneath the hose and open the handle. Allow all the fuel in the canister to drain into the bucket. Remove the lid of the canister. Remove the fuel filter and place it to the side.
Install the new fuel filter o-rings onto the new filter. Use a small bit of automotive grease to help hold the o-rings in place. Slide the fuel filter into the canister.
Reinstall the lid to the fuel canister and tighten it down. Prime the fuel system before starting the motor. Turn the key to "acc" and allow the fuel pump to send fuel to the filter. Allow it to prime for 10 seconds and then try to start the Dodge Ram. Repeat step 6 if necessary. good-day !

Fuel leaking from a round black part in the fuel system. this part has two fuel lines entering and exiting. what is this part called? the bottom of this part screws on or off.


it is a fuel canister (some had a filter in them and some did not it is wise to change the filter it helps clean fuel before the fuel pump) it is located under drivers side door.. when you unscrew it you can use a oil filter wrench be careful it is plastic..there is normally a o-ring that goes around the bottom piece the o-ring will dry out and it will leak..go to parts store get a new filter, clean the parts really good, you will get a o-ring with the filter but the ones i have changed i have found the o-ring is a joke and as long as it is clean and no cracks, you really dont need the o-ring..

I am trying to replace the fuel filter on my 1999 Dodge Ram 24 valve Cummins engine. It looks like the lid of the housing canister for the fuel filter is fixed, so do I just remove the top center nut so...


You are correct. The nut on top of the canister is loosened and the canister drops down. First - disconnect the electrical pigtail for the water sensor (at the bottom of the canister. Second - turn the water fuel bleed valve (yellow) near the top front of the canister to control spillage when you do remove the canister. The new filter comes with new O ring seals. Moisten with claean diesel and install. Add clean diesel to the newly installed filter and you will have an easier start up.

How do i replace the natural vacuum leak detection pump on a 2005 dodge dakota?


Vehicles equipped with NGC engine control modules use an NVLD pump and system. Vehicles equipped with JTEC engine control modules use a leak detection pump. Refer to Leak Detection Pump (LDP) for additional information.
The Natural Vacuum Leak Detection (NVLD) system is the next generation evaporative leak detection system that will first be used on vehicles equipped with the Next Generation Controller (NGC). This new system replaces the leak detection pump as the method of evaporative system leak detection. This is to detect a leak equivalent to a 0.020 (0.5 mm) hole. This system has the capability to detect holes of this size very dependably.


Removal & Installation
  1. Raise and support vehicle.
  2. Remove left-rear tire.
  3. Remove plastic shield (4) in front of left-rear tire. Access to both the EVAP canister (1) and NVLD pump (6) is from the area in front of the removed tire.
  4. Disconnect electrical connector at NVLD pump.
  5. Remove vapor line at NVLD pump. Pry outward on tab (3) and rotate pump (6) clockwise about 70 for removal.
  6. Remove NVLD pump O-ring (5) from EVAP canister (1).
To Install:
  1. Install new NVLD pump O-ring (5) to EVAP canister (1).
  2. Position NVLD pump (6) into EVAP canister (1).
  3. Rotate pump (6) until tab aligns with notch in EVAP canister (1).
  4. Carefully install vapor/vacuum lines to NVLD pump.
    WARNING The vapor/vacuum lines and hoses must be firmly connected. Check the vapor/vacuum lines at the NVLD pump, filter and EVAP canister purge solenoid for damage or leaks. If a leak is present, a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) may be set.
  5. Connect electrical connector to pump.
  6. Install plastic shield in front of left-rear tire.
  7. Install left-rear tire.

HAVE A OIL LEAK COMING FROM ABOVE THE OIL FILTER.


Has the oil filter just been replaced? Sometimes the old gasket sticks to the mounting area, causing leakage if the new filter is installed on top of it. It is also possible the gasket was for some reason missing on a new filter. Let me know if this is not the cause, I'll try to help further.

How do I change oil filter cartridge on 1995 BMW 325is?


I would first clean up the oil around the housing with brake cleaner. Take the car for a quick run and see where the oil is coming from.

If the housing looks good, then simply take the cap off of the oil filter housing. Remove the existing filter and discard the o-rings. Make sure you lubricate the new o-rings with some oil before installation. This could be why it is leaking now. It may have been overlooked.

Once the o-ring is seated drop in the new filter and replace the housing cap. Tighten the cap to 18 ft lbs. Start the engine, making sure the warning light goes out, showing you have oil pressure.

If your oil is that new then I would not bother with a changeover.

I hope this helps. It is an easy filter to change. BMW doesn't make too many things easy.

Good luck
