Question about 1997 Toyota Tercel

Me, too: Leaking filler neck, '97 Corolla CE

I also have this problem and was going to take it in for repair, but would like to know if it's a big deal to replace myself. I am handy and have performed my own car repairs many times, but don't have a garage so would have to use ramps or jack stands in the driveway. I see replacements online in the $65 to $95 range... Is it worth doing myself?

Possible fuel tank leak. Is the smell inside the car? If so there is an inspection cover under the back seat. If outside mist likely the fuel tank filler neck us rusted and leaking.

Check engine light comes on have had it in twice for a fix/they say its the gas cap well the first time they cleaned the old cap and re set the computer.the second time they replace the cap and re set the...

Well, I would check the filler neck connections and the condition of the filler neck. If this is leaking there, or the tank is leaking, the loose gas cap code will show up.

Keep taking it back to the original shop until the problem is fixed. Have faith.

What can i do to fix the problems of po440,441 and 446?

Hello, and welcome to FixYa. Please allow us to assist you.

You have a verry common condition; we see this quite often.

The codes you mention are usually caused by one (or a combination) of the three things that follows.

1. You do not have the 'factory' fuel tank cap fitted to the car; 'Aftermarket' fuel caps do not seal properly, and the leak of thefuel fumes under the cap will light the light.

2. The o-ring that seals the cap to the fuel filler neck is worn, or otherwise compromised, which will also allow the fumes to escape and light the light.

3. There could be rust on the filler neck tube, which would not allow a tight seal between the cap
s o-ring seal and the filler neck.

I would recommend replacing the fuel cap with a factory replacement, and inspect the filler neck sealing surface for rust buildup. If you see rust, a replacement filler neck will be in order.

Thanks for choosing FixYa fo assistance today.

Lost key for locked gas cap on toyota tacoma

You don't. If there was an easy way to remove it there wouldn't be much appeal for the lock function.

Ideally. you will need to have a locksmith pick it.

Alternative: Drill out the lock cylinder (bad idea, possible debris entering fuel tank).

Or my personal preference: big channel locks.

My 97 CE takes should be marked on top of the oil filler cap on top of the engine.
