Is it crtical that fuel cap makes an airtight seal on this car Nissan Micra 2004 Petrol


I'm not an auto mechanic - Can't speak for every car or fuel cap, but in general there must be a vent for the fuel tank either thru a vent built into the cap or separately. A fuel tank with no vent will build a vacuum as fuel is pumped out to the engine and eventually the fuel pump will stop pumping if unable to overcome the vacuum or if powerful enough, the vacuum will cause the fuel tank to collapse. Air must enter somehow! Possibly cars these days have a filter/absorbent on a d dedictated vent to remove potential dust and moisture, but none of my cars ever had a fuel vent filter replaced. My guess is that an airtight seal is not critical on any gas or diesel tank cap.

How do I replace the Fuel Pump in my 2002 Cadillac Seville SLS


Hello ray......

The fuel pump is located inside the fuel tank. You can access the fuel tank thru the trunk. Inside the trunk and underneath the carpet, there is a access panel. Remove the five screws and lift the access panel. There under the panel you will see the pump. Disconnect it and take it to the auto parts store as they usually want the old one for an exchange.

Do i have to drop the tank to replace feul pump on 1998 ford thunder bird


Yes, the pump is inside the tank. Good luck!
Removal & Installation
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable and relieve the fuel system pressure.
  2. Siphon or pump as much fuel as possible out through the fuel filler pipe.

NOTE

All vehicles have reservoirs inside the fuel tank to maintain fuel near the fuel pickup during cornering and under low fuel operating conditions. These reservoirs could block siphon tubes or hoses from reaching the bottom of the fuel tank. Repeated attempts using different hose orientations can overcome this obstacle.


  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2. Remove the exhaust pipe and exhaust shield, if equipped. Disconnect the fuel fill and vent hoses connecting the filler pipe to the tank. Disconnect one end of the vapor crossover hose at the rear over the driveshaft.
  3. If equipped with a metal retainer that fastens the filler pipe to the fuel tank, remove the screw attaching the retainer to the fuel tank flange.
  4. Disconnect the fuel lines and the electrical connector to the fuel tank sending unit. On some vehicles, these are inaccessible on top of the tank. In these cases they must be disconnected with the tank partially removed.
  5. Place a safety support under the fuel tank and remove the bolts from the fuel tank straps. Allow the straps to swing out of the way. Be careful not to deform the fuel tank.
  6. Partially remove the tank and disconnect the fuel lines and electrical connector from the sending unit, if required.
  7. Remove the tank from the vehicle.

To install:

  1. Raise the fuel tank into position in the vehicle. Connect the fuel lines and sending unit electrical connector if it is necessary to connect them before the tank is in the final installed position.
  2. Lubricate the fuel filler pipe with water base tire mounting lubricant and install the tank onto the filler pipe, then bring the tank into final position. Be careful not to deform the tank.
  3. Bring the fuel tank straps around the tank and start the retaining nut or bolt. Align the tank with the straps. If equipped, make sure the fuel tank shields are installed with the straps and are positioned correctly on the tank. Align the tank with the driveshaft.
  4. Check the hoses and wiring mounted on the tank top to make sure they are correctly routed and will not be pinched between the tank and body. Make sure the fuel vent hose is positioned above the vent retainer and not contacting the driveshaft.
  5. Tighten the fuel tank strap retaining nuts or bolts to 22-30 ft. lbs. (29-41 Nm).
  6. If not already connected, connect the fuel hoses and lines which were disconnected. Make sure the fuel supply, fuel return, if present, and vapor vent connections are made correctly. If not already connected, connect the sending unit electrical connector.
  7. Install the exhaust pipe shield, if equipped, and exhaust pipe.
  8. Lower the vehicle. Replace the fuel that was drained from the tank. Check all connections for leaks.

Very slow to fill fuel tank. refuel hose nosel keeps clicking off when refueling


on your fuel tank their is a vent line from the tank that comes back up to the main fuel inlet line that is to let the air from an empty tank escape while fuel goes in, if that vent is not working properly then the fuel cannot go in quickly because the air in the tank has no where to go. The hose is made of rubber and may have become fatigued and kinked on a sharp corner. You will have to go underneath the vehile and inspect where vent line from where it exits the tank and goes back up to the main inlet line. You may have to replace the line.
