Ford freestyle smell like gas inside


Could be a small gas leak in one of the gas lines or even a leak on top of the gas tank and yes could even be a leak where the fuel pump goes in the top of the tank. Quite often the leak is on the tank top out of sight and it smells of gas even if you have a slight leak.

Gas leaking from my tank switch


Use compression barb fittings on the pressure side with fuel injection line NOT REGULAR FUEL HOSE THE REGULAR HOSE WONT HOLD UP TO THE PRESSURE. The return line can be regular fuel line because of the low pressure.

I have a gas leak from the top of my tank. Is dropping the tank the only way to access my gas tank at the top to see what the problem is?


yes, unless you can see the hookups from the front of the tank. You can probably get by with just dropping it a little. Leak is probably a bad hose.

2000 ford windstar gas smell on the inside only no gas leaks already changed the fuel filter the pcv valve is fine as well .where is the smell coming from? and why is it only on the inside and u can't...


Check and see if you have any gas on the ground after you park your car. Check around the gas tank and gas cap. It's possible that the fuel pump (which is in the gas tank) has hoses that may be leaking. If this is a slight leak, it might only manifest itself via a gas odor into the trunk or passenger compartment. It might be a good idea to put the car on a hoist and follow the fuel lines from the engine to the fuel tank. There should a one line that takes the fuel from the fuel tank to the engine and another that brings back the excess. There should also be another line coming out of the fuel tank that is for venting. Unfortunately, the fuel pump and hose connections are not easily accessible and require either removing the gas tank or cutting a hole in the trunk to access it. You should definitely take care of this soon as leaks don't get better, only worse and it is a potential fire hazard. Good luck!

Gas leaking from tank


This sounds like you have a leak at the fuel pump and sender unit, either in the unit mount or in a fuel line. Check under your back seat for an access panel if you have one then remove it and look at the pump and sender mount to see what is leaking, you may have to start the engine to get it to leak as it may only leak under pressure, hope this helps, let me know

Gas leaking out where you fill the front tank


You probably have a defective fuel-tank selector valve. Its located on the left frame rail, halfway down. While the vehicle is running, tank"A" is pumping fuel to the engine, while tank "B" is getting the unneeded fuel that is returning from the engine. Thats why it is overflowing.

Front gas tank leaked when I filled the tank


the top of the tank has an opening where the gas guage sending unit is installed. The gasket can give out and it can leak when the tank is completely full, but won't necessarily show signs of leakage when the tank is partially full.
Requires dropping the tank and changing the gasket... hope this helps.
