    a fuel leak will leave a stain on the tank where it has been running out
    check the position on the ground then look above that point to find the stain or mark on the tank

Hi,I have a 98 EL falcon that when I put over 3/4 of petrol in it, it will leak somewhere and fill up the well on top of the pump,only does this when over 3/4 car runs well?

i am thinking that the seal around the pump / fuel gauge is faulty and the extra fuel level up the hose is leaking out
it could be the fill hose to the tank has perished and cracked leaking the fuel out or the clamp is loose
what ever it is imperative that you fix the fault quickly as loose fuel is dangerous

Put a new in tank fuel pump in 3 days ago in my hyundai accent, but can smell petrol inside the car.

I would double check that your fuel tank is sealed. Fuel fumes can be very bad for your health and can be very dangerous. Sounds as though the gas line may be leaking, or the fuel pump seal is leaking.

Car not starting

Could be the fuel filter. When the vehicle used all the fuel in the tank, it may have sucked in some trash on the bottom of the tank. There is almost always some in there. You may need to replace the fuel filter and try to start the car again.

I have a problem starting it will try to turn over chugging along 3,4 times the other day it semmed it would turn over, you can hear the starter that has been changed, I have never changed the fuel...

no i dont think so because from your description i would suspect a battery problem or a engine earth to chassis problem if its not turning over right .A dirty fuel filter on a petrol engine is something i rarely come across ,unless its a static generator or similar thats filled from a can.All fuel delivery pumps on garage forecourts have a micronic filter on the delivery side so changing a fuel filter is something i just dont have to do unless its a old vehicle with a metal fuel tank and this one doesnt have one.Ask a local mechanic to have a look for you and see what he/she says
