Tank seems to be loose from seat on toilet

Can pull tank forward like it is loose. Have had a lot of problems with float and inside tank running. It is possible that the tank can break loose.

Those tanks are usually held on to the bottom by 2 bolts with rubber gaskets in between. Its possible the bolts have come loose or was not installed tight enough when installed. The rubber gaskets could be rotten as well depending on its age. You should be able to buy the parts you need at a hardware store.You can also buy the float as well as all the parts to replace all the working parts. I would start from scratch unless its cheaper to just replace the whole unit. I would get prices to compare. If you are handy at all you can do it yourself but if not call a plumber.

How do I ...locate the fuel pump of my infiiti G20 1992


It's in the gas tank attached to the float assembly.
Somewhere on the gas tank, find where the tubes connect. They'll connect to a round disk shaped thing about 5" to 6" in diameter that's bolted to the tank. The pump is one of the things attached to the other side of that disk inside the tank. The rest of what's attached to the other side of that disk loosely resembles a toilet valve assembly in a toilet tank.
Google images for "1992 infiniti g20 fuel pump float assembly" to see what it all looks like. Google again but leave off 'float assembly' to see pictures of just the pump.

Im going to need to drop my fuel tank in my 1986 camry. I have never done it before but I am capable. So If anyone knows how to do this please help. I dont want to break anything. First Im going to open...


First disconnect the negative terminal of the battery. Next left out the back seat. It is spring clipped in with two clips on the bottom left and right front of the seat. Pull clips forward and lift seat front up. I hooks in at the back so rotate the front up to unhook and lift out. In the middle under the seat is the gas gage float. Disconnect the wire connector and remove floor cover with Philips screwdriver. Then remove float from tank. This step must be done so you do not break the wire to the gas gage float. It is also the best place to siphon off the gas in the tank. Then you can remove the tank. You may have an exhaust shield to remove. The tank is held in with two straps hinged in the front and bolted in the back. Loosen the brake line clamps attached to the straps so that the clamp will slip when the tank straps are hinged down. There are several hoses and a gas connect to open. Open hose clamps. Disconnect fuel pump connector at back of tank. The fill hose needs to be worked off as you pull the tank down. There is one hose on the top back edge of the tank that needs disconnect after the tank is tipped down some. There is a rubber/plastic tank holder connected to the back flange of the gas tank. Remove the two corner screws but leave the guard connected to the straps. Remove the two strap bolts and hinge down to pull it out and disconnect all hoses. Mark with tape or some mean which hose when were.

My gas gauge seems to be acting up. When I get below half a tank the gauge will go up to full and back down again on it's own. It seems like it is only accurate when I put the car in park. what gives?


The float is what measures your gas levels. It is controlled electronically. There might be a loose wire or it could be going bad. You can usually get to them by moving the back seat. Others, the gas tank has to be pulled off. I hope this helps you.

Fuel guage shows 3/4 full right after fillup


It is most likely your fuel level sending unit has gone bad. It sits inside your fuel tank and uses a float similar to that uded in your toilet to tell the fuel guage how much gas you have in the tank.

In many cases, the unit can be accessed for replacment by removing the rear seat and opening the access port (3-4 screws) and removing the sending unit from the top of the fuel tank. It looks like this...

Toilet keeps running. Replaced the flapper, improved the condition, but toilet keeps running slightly. Is there somewhere I can make an adjustment to the stack deal?


It's possible there's too much tension on the chain which won't allow the flapper to completely seal and let the tank fill. If this is not the case, the float may be stuck. If the float is sticking you're better off replacting it. If the tank is filling and water is overflowing into the tube, then it's the float.

Gas gage isnt right it keeps floating


The Sorento gs tank is under the floor in the back seat. Flip the seat bottom's forward and pull open the Velcro to access the top of the tank. The fuel pump and sender may be accessible from the top, but you might be unlucky and have t remove the tank.

1986 toyota camary. sat for 2 to 3 years and the


best bet would be to drop the tank and clean it out
they tend to get rust inside the tank when they sit this long if you decide to drop the tank and find rust inside take a 3 ft piece of heavy chain and shake it around inside the tank to loosen all the rust and clean the rust out really well before putting the tank back in

Gas leaking from on top of the tank


In the 03, the bottom of the back seat has two (2) spring hooks about 12 or so inches from the side (looks like this, o= hook _= front of seat bottom), (_o____o_). Just pull up on each one and the seat bottom will come up and out/forward. The seat back has a couple of bolts that you will see once you remove the seat bottom. Remove bolt(s) and slide the seat back to the outside. There are two (2) "windows" to the tank. One on driver's side that will be visible when you remove the seat bottom (and pull back the carpet and insulation, and one behind the seat-back on the passenger's side (this is where the fuel pump, et. al. is/are. Driver's side is just the second float. There is a wire and hose that connects the two floats, so you may want to disconnect the battery to avoid any electrical current in the tank.
