I have a raw gas smell comming from fuel tank area


There is a vent on some fuel tanks. As gas gets heated, either from the afternoon heat or from driving, it expands. If your tank is full or close to it, the vapors can escape through the filler tube or some have another vent tube near the filler tube

Where is the fue pump located on an 97 buick lesaber


The fuel pump is located inside the fuel tank. If you have a major leak, there are a few things it could be. The filler tube you put gas into during a fill-up goes directly to the fuel tank. The filler tube may have a hole in it; If your tube is rubber, the clamp at the fuel tank may need replaced; you may have a fuel line leaking near the fuel tank, The fuel tank may have a hole in it. A fuel leak is a hazardous situation, so take extra precautions to be safe and have it repaired asap.

Diesal gas in the tank


You must drain all the diesel fuel out of the tank and purge the fuel lines as well or it will not start.

Hard to put fuel in tank


Ford Contours have a cheap plastic "flapper valve" at the bottom of the filler neck which supposedly prevents fuel from sloshing back up the neck while fueling. This valve is useless and was never lneeded. When it sticks closed it will make fueling difficult if not impossible. Solution - simply find a heavy cable and push it down the filler neck until it reaches the valve. Give it a heavy rap...sometimes you have to keep doing it over and over until it breaks off the flapper valve. The flapper valve will then float in the tank and will not cause problems. It's a miracle cure that costs nothing. I believe I used a drain snake that I bought at home depot and cut off the large end to do the job. I haven't had a problem with this solution in the past 3 years.

Happy fueling

1999 ford contour fuel pump removal


YOU will need the car on a hoist, doing it on the ground is almost impossiable, disconnect the filler neck at top, remove the straps, lower tank slow and disconnect wiring and fuel hoses, you need a special tool to remove the gas line retainer clips.
