SOURCE: 1996 cavalier bad oil leak when running

Overfilled is not good but it would have to be very high to cause leak,There are numerous places in rear of engine that could be leaking.could be leaking from rear of intake,the oilpump drive o ring,but most likly leaking from rear main seal that seals at the rear of the crankshaft and the transmission will need to come out to access this seal. you will need to have the oil leak diagnosed to locate the exact spot.

SOURCE: Fuel leaks from filler pipe to gas tank

You don't need to replace the gas tank, the filler pipe is connected to a rubber hose which connects to the tank with clamps at each end.

There should be a radiator cap as it controls what goes into the overfill tank. You might consider replacing it. If there are no leaks in the radiator or hoses, there are only 3 places the coolant can go (water pump leak, blown gasket, or out throught the radiator cap). Hope its the cap because that's the cheapest. Good luck!

I hope you didn't overfill your tank.. raw fuel into the vent valve in the filler neck will generally screw it up.. this causes no pressure to build in the tank and it assumes that it because of a gas cap leak... this is one possible reason

Does petrol tank leaks when overfilled i fillled up the petrol in Murano 2012 and its started leaking. local mechanics checked the gasket found it missing he replaced it this stoped the leaking for a week...


Yep,breather is necessary.Breather line is draining it under the car,less dangerous.Do not feel it to the top.Replace the draining line,dust/water may find a way into the tank,later u'll have to deal it (fuel filter,cloged fuel lines,fuel pump malfunction,fuel gauge malfunction).Track the problem eliminate the hipoteses of a cracked tank,loosed fuel pump.Cheers.

My 1995 accord ex 5spd oil light flashes but it has recommended amount of oil in it. The manual says its low oil pressure. Do i need a new oil pump? what?


Low oil pressure can be from a restriction in the filter, a weak oil pump or excess clearnance between the crankshaft, camshaft, main and rod bearings. Low oil pressure when the engine has adequate oil means the engine is in need of at least a pump. It may even need an overhaul. My question would be does it run OK not leak or smoke and have good fuel economy. The best case if everything is running fine is that the sending unit is defective.

My 1996 honda accord consumes too much fuel in a ratio of 1-6 km /liter, what seems to be the problem? I have it tuned up, cleaned the throttles, etc,, but to no avail. whats the best thing to do?


Since you've cleverly already done the normal tune-up items that preserve the 96 Accord's good fuel economy, its time to move onto the tougher adventures.

Cars with outrageously bad fuel consumption are losing fuel somehow (aka leaking).
(a) There's a fuel tank drain plug on the bottom of the fuel tank (used to drain tank for service) - make sure its tight and that the tank isn't leaking fuel there.
(b) check your fuel lines - there are 2 (one supplies fuel to the engine, and the other returns excess to the tank). If either is leaking, your car will lose petrol quickly.
(c) the evaporative fuel canister - instead of absorbing vapours, it may be full of fuel and leaking..
(d) check your fuel rail - its pressurized with fuel while the car is running - it may be leaking - and if it is: (1) the top of your engine will soon catch fire (2) the fuel may be evaporating as soon as it leaks, since the top of the engine gets so hot.

Use a fuel pressure gauge to test the fuel pressure in your 96 Accord's fuel rail - attach your
(with an appropriate (brass) adapter) to where the banjo bolt enters the top of the fuel filter - as
described in this passage from the Honda repair manual:

From the 1996 Honda Accord repair manual:
Note that this part of the Honda manual fails to mention that before you disconnect the negative terminal of the battery, you must note (and write down) the 3-digit radio lock code
--- begin excerpt ---
The Fuel System Pressure Specification


38-46 PSI (Pounds per Square Inch)Remove the ground cable from the negative battery post and also remove the fuel tank filler cap. Slowly release system pressure at the fuel filter and cleanup spilled fuel. Remove the Banjo bolt and install a fuel pressure test gauge. Reconnect the battery ground cable and proceed to start the engine and allow the system pressure to stabilize. While the engine is at idle, block off/pinch the number (1) vacuum line to the fuel pressure regulator and visually verify the fuel pressure reading on the test gauge.
--- end excerpt from 1996 Honda Accord repair guide ---

(e) possible leaking fuel pressure regulator - located at back of top side of engine, and looks like an
enlarged fuel filter - with hose clamps on either end clamping the fuel line. Retighten its bolts to 12 Nm (9 ft-lbs) when done checking it (for leakage).

(f) to move on from fuel - if you're getting only partial ignition, your fuel economy will suffer too - but you'll smell alot of unburned fuel in your exhaust (and get alot of backfiring). Use your HEI (high energy ignition) tester to rule out ignition (spark) problems.

When i fill up the tank of the 1993 cutl. cierra, a strong gas smell comes from the car...


It's the gas cap tightly in place? Did you overfill it? Can you see any sigh of leakage?

Some times when we overfill our gas tank, the spilled gas gets into cracks or holes in the body of the vehicle and takes a while to evaporate.

If the smell is still strong after one hour, take it to the shop to have it checked for leaks.

Would the water pump leak even when the car has been sitting for 9 hours? I can go to work, and when I come out, I can see the leak. Would that be the water pump?


yes, water pump could link even if it just sitting there for hours. But i would rather not jump into that conclusion, other causes of water leak could be just broken radiator hose and other water connections that simply needs retightening or replacement. check on this first before going to your water pump
