SOURCE: gasoline odor

I have a 1991 Acclaim that had a gas odor problem. It only smelled when the car was running. There were no external leaks to be found when the car was not running. It turned out to be a leaking fuel line that runs thru the rear wheel well and would only leak when the line was under pressure. Which was when you were driving.

SOURCE: Gasoline pump at gas station keeps turning off

There is a vent valve located near the fuel tank. The vent valve is part of the EVAP emission system. If the valve is obstructed or failed, air will not escape while refueling.
Has the service engine light come on at all?
Regards,

SOURCE: 2000 Ford Taurus SES, 3.0L. Have coolant leak

I suggest that you put it back together, clean it, and pressure test the cooling system. Needs to hold 13 to 15 psi. THEN look for leaks.

SOURCE: The car seems to have an obstruction in the gas line, won't take gasoline easily from the punp. Turns pump off continuosly.

Dan the reason it takes it from a gas can is there is no pressure building up in the line as you would have from a gas tank. As you fill the tanks the air inside of the tank has to go out as the tank fills up. I would suggest checking the fill hose thats connected to the gas tanks and the spout inlet where you put the hose to fill the tanks and check for kinks in the hose. Second there should be a vent hose from the tanks that connects to the spout also check it for kinks or blockage this would prevent air from escaping from the tank causing the gas pump to cut off due to the rapid filling of the tank without the air being able to escape. Hope this helps

I have a 1995 Toyota corolla and I recently noticed I had a gas leak I sealed the hole with JBL epoxy to hold me over until my new tank arrives but it looks as if there is oil mixed in with the gas .


Keep checking the oil level and the transmission fluid level to make sure they stay full, but there should be no oil in the gas tank.
There may be water, however, and it may be brown like oil.
Water will sit in the bottom of the tank and make rust underneath the gasoline, since gasoline floats on water.

When filling up the gas tank of my 1998 Pontiac Grand Prix SE, it releabsed a few cups of gasoline from somewhere at the bottom of the car. I'm not sure why??? It hasn't leaked since.


Both the fuel pump and gas gage sending units are located inside the tank. They are accessed by a plate and gasket on top of the fuel tank.
If the gasket leaks or the hoses leading to the vent leak, your condition would happen. Unfortunately to confirm the tank would have to be dropped(removed) which requires all the fuel to be removed first. Not a pleasant nor easy task.

Gasoline gauge is erratic; does not show true reading


Most likely it's the sender unit inside the gas tank. Here's a quick test to determine if problem is your dash gauge or the sender unit. At the gas tank, unplug the electrical connector and use a jumper wire to ground the gauge sender wire on the car side of connector (not the tank side of connector). With key on the dash gauge should move to full, meaning your dash gauge is good, but the sender inside tank needs replacing. Check with Ford or a ford guy to see if your tank has to be removed from car to access sender unit. Some cars today have access panels to tank under rear seat.

Leaking gasoline from gas tank after being driven the gas tank is not full and it stops when I relieve the pressure by opening gas cap.


there are allot of hioses and connections to these tanks that can be leaking, the leak in almost always on the top of the tank, u are going to have to get under the car and look for gasoline stains from the leak, if the gas stains go up and over the top of the tank then the tank must come out fro repair.

Hi,
May I suggest a locking gas cap. You could put a large piece of cardboard under your car and if there are any drops the next morning that smell like gasoline you might find the leak if there is one.
Cheers,
Ken
