SOURCE: fuel tank leaking how to

I don't think you will have any luck sealing this from the outside.
Removing the tank (preferably empty), filling it with water and soldering all of the seams (if metal) or replacing it if of plastic.

This could be sloppy manufacturing showing up late, stress from being slammed underneath (is there signs of dents or scrapes?) or if metal, it might be rusting through which is pretty much a death sentence for it.
Pouring some (a cup or so) methanol, pure ethanol or a commercial product intended for that use, into your tank now and then will cause condensation to bond to the gasoline where it will pass though the system and out.

SOURCE: can't find the spout to pour transmission fluid into Ford Taurus

You need a funnel to add trans fluid to the dipstick tube where u check the trans fluid level. Let me know if u need more help, Add fluid w/ engine running, shift car thru all gears to circulate fluid. Don't overfill, it's bad for the trans.

SOURCE: filling the gas tank 2000 chevy impala

make sure that the little hose is clear of any restrictions and you can blow through it this will be the vent tube for the fuel tank. there is also a check ball that may be lodged in the tank and it is located in the tank right where the fill tube connects to the tank. you should be able to disconnect the tube and move it around with your finger. thanks and keep me updated or if you run into a problem

your fuel injectors may be clogged up, but change your fuel filter first.

SOURCE: gas leak and smell coming from top right rear side

Check to make sure its not a leak. If its a leak, there is a product at Most Auto part stores that will stop a leak even when its leaking gas. If this doesnt work, you would have to remove the tank for repair or replacement.

Fuel pump replaced 3 times. Now gasoline is pouring out underneath

The fuel pump is located inside the fuel tank. It's possible that the last time it was replaced, one of the fuel line connections was left loose. Have it checked out immediately!

Sounds like your not getting fuel. Turn key on and listen by gas tank and see if you hear a buzz sound. if you don't you'll need to replace the fuel pump.

Looks like it may be a fuel return line from the fuel manifold . It may be split or loose . Probably both . Get a new section of fuel hose and some good clips and replace it

My '88 Ford E-150 van (dual tanks) ran out of gas. Now it won't restart with either tank. How do I re-prime the system?

the easiest way is to take off the air filter top, and have someone turn the engine over while you SLOWLY (like out of the air hole in a gas can) pour gas into the carburetor (carefully...) have them press slightly on the gas pedal. It could take a couple minutes of pouring, but It will prime the gas lines. Stop when it will run on its own

2002 ford taurus

no theres not a valve for smells, it usually means that when your tank is empty, it smells bad because most likely your running on water and gas, which causes a bad smell, a good way to fix it, is to pour a bottle of a subtence called HEAT, thats what it says on the bottle, then just pour all of it in your gas tank and what it does is make all the water that may be in your gas tank dissapear.. hope this helps...and if it doesn't that usually means that you should replace your fuel fillter.
