SOURCE: i got gas leak coming from the fuel line

First off, what kind of vehicle do you have? I assume it is one that has an electric fuel pump in the gas tank, so that is what my answer will be geared to.
On the gas tank there are several lines. The most important ones for this conversation are the ones that deliver fuel to the engine and the one that returns the excess fuel back to the tank. They are usually different in size.
The larger one delivers the fuel and the smaller one returns the excess fuel back to the tank. Either one may be the culprit in this scenero.The tank is usually connected by a high pressure flexible fuel line to a stainless fuel line resembeling a brake line. At times this flex line may develope a leak for varrious reasons. It could be something rubbing against the line, it could be the crimped connection went bad and is leaking, etc. If it is your flex line, which it probably is there is a repair kit you can purchase to fix it. I have only been able to find this repair kit at NAPA. I've tried many auto parts stores and they are the only ones that carry it. The use of it is very simple actually. You find the leak in your line, which by the way is harder than it sounds and usually involves removing the gas tank. In which case you will need a special tool to disasemble the gas line from the tank. Once the leak is located you cut the line. You then have to place the remaining flex hose in boiling hot water for at least 10 seconds, which makes it soft and insert a splice fiting into it. When the line cools, it will shrink tight on the connector. You the do the same with the hose that came with the repair kit. Then do the same with the other end and install the fitting which connects to the gas tank. You should now be in business.
BTW. I have to do this very thing tomorrow.
Good Luck! and let me know if this helps you.

SOURCE: Nissan sentra fuel problem

I believe this is a manual fuel pump and you may have lost the prime, no fuel in hose to tank. If the hose from rear frame to tank has a break or hole, it will **** air and not fuel from tank. If this is not the case, possible clogged fuel hose, tubing, or pickup tube in tank assuming you have turned the engine over serveral times and there is enough fuel in tank. Some tanks do not pickup from very bottom because of water laying in bottom of tank from condensation.

SOURCE: fuel pump not getting power

This is general information:
If your timing belt is broke the computer will shut the fuel pump off, as well as a low-oil pressure sensor (check your oil level).

If you have a bad Crank-shaft sensor this will happen.
A bad MAP sensor will not let the vehicle start but if you remove the electrical plug from it, it should start but will be rough.
A bad cam-sensor should only make it hard on fuel.
Inspect the wiring that leads directly to the tank - you may have broken a corroded wire, especially where it goes back into the body from the gas-tank back.
Try giving the tank a whack with a rubber hammer or chunk of wood as someone turns the key off and on to start position without actually turning the car over this will dislodge any dirt that may have got lodged into the fuel pump.

The computer or ECM:  Inspect the harness at this location for movement and rubbing of the harness causing wires to fray and or break at this location up to a couple feet of the ECM perhaps.

I don't think you could have mixed up the return line to the tank from the feel line.  The computer will shut it off if the pressure isn't reached within 2 seconds.  

Without knowing more info on to what led to this problem, why you changed anything or what was the original problem and conditions, noises.
Sometimes there is a seal that seals the fuel pump to the sending unit and if this o-ring isn't put back in, you'll **** air but I don't think that this is your problem.  I suspect the MAP or Crank Sensor.
I wouldn't replace anything without testing them though, and if you purchase a manual from Canadian Tire in Canada, it will tell you how to test each Sensor.
Most electrical I recommend taking to a garage and have them put it on the computer for $90. and then to replace the part that they put in the quote.
Good luck

Where is the fuel sensor on a 1997 jeep grand cherokee


Have you checked the fuel filter? I would pull the fuel line apart before the filter to see if the pump is putting gas into the line. With key on, the pump should run for 2 seconds to pressurize the lines and fuel rail. And when the engine is cranking over, the pump should be running constant and putting gas into the line. If gas shoots out, possibly the filter is clogged or the fuel pressure regulator on the fuel rail is defective. If no gas comes out, possibly the pump filter sock is clogged or the pump is defective.
Very unusual for the pump to run and have NO fuel pressure.

My carburetor is not gettin enough gas


Have you checked fuel pressure (put a gauge in-line with the fuel line - to measure fuel pump pressure).
It sound like you have a bad fuel pump.

if your engine is TD27 turbo, replace you fuel fillter and replace with new one. fill up with your new fuel filter with your gas before installation. tighten if firmly, make sure no air/gas leak. then pump it manually. stop pumping until you fell that fuel line has no air inside or hard to pump/press.

2001 Durango acts like the gas tank is full during filling cutting off the pump. The only way to fill tank is to pump gas really slow


Chrysler and Dodge have a fuel vapor filter that allows air out of the gas tank but filters the harmful fumes. Usually the problem happens from topping off your gas after the gas pump stops due to the automatic shut off and then putting more gas in the tank (to make the bill an even $50. or to the next $5 increment, or pumping more in just because it fits). Anyway the filter gets saturated with gas, is not able to breath, and causes a vacuum in the tank. Because of this, the anti-siphon ball is not able to float around and sits at the opening of the fuel fill tube and won't allow any more gas to be put in (acts like the car is full). If you pump super duper slow like put a nickel to hold the gas pump handle, it will trickle in without a problem, but it takes forever! Solution, get the filter replaced and don't over fill the tank.

HHR LOST POWER AND SHUT OFF. IT STARTED RIGHT BACK BUT WHAT CAUSED IT TO STOP.


Going to keep it simple since it started up again and is running, Chances are the fuel filter has come to the end of it's life and needs to be replaced. After saying this you may get away with filling the gas tank a few times and adding fuel injector cleaner to the gas since the new style fuel pump with the filter is also know as self cleaning filters and is good for life till the electric pump fails it self, which has an average life of 150,000 miles. You can get more life out of the pump if you run more then half a tank of gas always, the gas it self is what keeps the electric pump cool and less gas means hotter running fuel pump. 
GM has stopped putting in-line filters in some models since 2004. Other manufacturers have been doing it longer. The fuel sender assembly (pump/regualtor/sock/level sensor) inside the tank has a container on the bottom of it about the size of 1/2 coffee can. All the fuel pick up components are inside of this container. It has a small intake port in the very bottom that filters the bigger debris so that the fuel that is filling the container is fairly clean. The fuel fills the container and a sock(filter) is used at the end of the fuel pumps pick-up tube. Smaller debris that makes it to the sock is then filtered by the sock before entering the fuel pump and simply falls to the bottom of the container.

Todays pumps are much more robust then pumps of old also. We still see more failures of the old style pumps with in-line fuel filters then we do of the newer style. GM calls this a self cleaning system. Any debris that does not go into the canister of the fuel pump assembly falls to the bottom of the tank and any debris that the sock stops falls to the bottom of the canister when the fuel pump is shut off. We are talking very small amounts of debris here too.

Good luck and hope this helps and like mentioned, try running the HHR with more then half a tank of gas and adding fuel injector cleaner for now.

Pumping fuel into the car takes forever ,and gas backflows


Fuel Backing up in the fill nozzle is most often caused by a restricted fuel tank vent line. This vent line runs from the tank to a charcole filter that stores the tank vapors while still allowing air to pass. It is typically located in the engine compartment. Look for a pinched hose first in the engine compartment. Typical hose diameter is 10 mm or less. If you have had recent work done on the car in the fuel tank area, this also may have resulted in the line being pinched or rerouted in error.

good luck
