    It is already empty. Next would be to remove the tank and reading how to on line it sounds fairly easy. Then I'll buy the gasket and re-install. Easy right?

On my daughters 97 mazda mpv it set a code P1345 CMP or SGC sensor circuit Fault .I just replaced the valve cover gaskets, I removed the upper intake to remove valve covers. I also replaced the 2 vac lines...


Look at your cam positon sensor harness and connector. Also pull the sensor out and look at the tip for abnormal wear (ie: chips, breakage, ugliness) Check for "mouse abuse," they love eating wire insulation. Most likely your sensor is bad. In the rare case you might have a damaged reluctor wheel.
Your Evap Code: large leak, that usually means that you left your gas cap loose. Or the seal on the cap is in need of replacement. Also if you've had any of your hands in the fuel tank, if you were messing around with the pump, you may have a damaged/leaking tank seal. OR if you were messing around with the vac lines you might have crossed the evap return line with the supply.

The procedure you are thinking about doing is the correct procedure but you need to know that there is a rubber seal behind the large nut. Best to remove the line, remove the large nut and replace the rubber seal. Overtorquing the nut will crack the plastic radiator tank. Double check BOTH fluid levels and conditions when finished.

you will have to remove upper intake plenum the black plastic part there is a o-ring around the area you are speaking of. now if this engine didn,t have the intake gaskets replaced before installing now would be good time because if you keep vehicle believe me you will have to do sooner or later these engines came with plastic intake gaskets that are notorious for leaking to do this you will njeed to remove both upper and lower intake manifolds I just started a job on 99 tahoe today before lunch and customer is driving tonight replaced upper and lower intake gaskets fel-pro makes updated gaskets for this engine that has thick metal shim and rubber gaskets a great improvement that ends this problem as for your vacuum leak at opening for fuel lines don,t see often but is possible hope this helps

Replace leaking fuel tank


Remove the filler tube. Remove the rubber fuel line and plug. Remove the attaching bolts for the tank. Place a jack under the tank with a block of wood and slowly lower the tank down. Don't forget to unplug the wiring harness too. The possibility is high that the seam is leaking. A few aftermarket companies offer the tank. Do some shopping though, prices are different with the different companies.
