If it is after the car have run or while on park i should say its the line coming from the tank. But since its while the car is running then its the fuel lines that is connected to the fuel pump .It will leak because of while the car is running , the fuel from the tank going to the filler tube . then it will pass to the fuel pump and it will leak while the car is running . therefore you should check on the fuel line that is connected to the fuel pump, which near the filler tube.good day.

Why is the car leaking fuel at the rear passenger side


trace the fuel line coming from the tank going to front of car and look for leaks. With a car that is 15 years old the gas line may be leaking

Fuel leak


check under the hood for any leaks from the fuel line, which comes up in front of the firewall and then turns back toward the engine. from the rear.
This could be a vacuum line leaking to the exhaust canister, it could be a leak near the fuel tank or filler coming from a vapor recovery line that goes to the engine compartment. Check the trunk to see if it has that smell. If so, check for a vacuum line under the car and see if it is unhooked and/or cracked. (does the smell get worse after you've filled the tank?) If so, this may be the culprit.
Replace these lines as necessary.

Good luck.

P0455 vac leak


I believe your code is a either an evap gross leak or small leak. Most Chrysler products had problems with the fuel vapor lines from the engine compartment to the tank leaking fumes. Usually at the ends of the lines where they are rubber rather than plastic. If you live in the northeast I have seen the filler neck tubes rust and become porous creating a small leak. Check the lines near the fuel tank first. Unfortunately these leaks are not always obvious and you will have to find a shop that has a smoke leak detector. There are other parts such as evap switches and solenoids that may not be functioning and may vent the system prematurely. Then there is the fuel cap. If the seal on it or the filler neck tube are damaged it will allow fuel vapors to escape into the atmosphere. Sorry there is no definitive answer but now you have an idea where to look.

Where is the fue pump located on an 97 buick lesaber


The fuel pump is located inside the fuel tank. If you have a major leak, there are a few things it could be. The filler tube you put gas into during a fill-up goes directly to the fuel tank. The filler tube may have a hole in it; If your tube is rubber, the clamp at the fuel tank may need replaced; you may have a fuel line leaking near the fuel tank, The fuel tank may have a hole in it. A fuel leak is a hazardous situation, so take extra precautions to be safe and have it repaired asap.

I have a fuel leak somwhere near the gas tank. There is fuel which leaked on to the rear axle but I can not find the source.


IT MIGHT HAVE COME FROM THE FILLER TUBE TO THE GAS TANK! OR POSSIBLY ONE OF THE FUEL LINES ATTACHED TO THE TOP OF THE TANK! ON A NEWER CAR, YOU CAN ACCESS THE FUEL PUMP INLET FROM UNDER THE BACK SEAT! DEFINATELY CHECK THIS OUT, AS IT CAN CAUSE A FIRE, AND YOU COULD GET HURT!

Codigo p1440


EVAP System Vent Circuit Malfunction

This diagnosis detects leaks in the Evaporative Emission (EVAP) purge line using of vapor pressure in the fuel tank. The EVAP canister vent control valve is closed to shut the EVAP purge line. The vacuum cut valve bypass valve will then be opened to clear the line between the fuel tank and the EVAP canister purge volume control solenoid valve. The EVAP control system pressure sensor can now monitor the pressure inside the fuel tank. If pressure increases, the Engine Control Module (ECM) will check for leaks in the line between the vacuum cut valve and EVAP canister purge volume control solenoid valve.

Possible causes
- Incorrect fuel tank vacuum relief valve
- Incorrect fuel filler cap used
- Fuel filler cap remains open or fails to close
- Foreign matter caught in fuel filler cap
- Leak is in line between intake manifold and EVAP canister purge volume control solenoid valve
- Foreign matter caught in EVAP canister vent control valve
- EVAP canister or fuel tank leaks
- EVAP purge line (pipe and rubber tube) leaks
- EVAP purge line rubber tube bent
- Blocked or bent rubber tube to EVAP control system pressure sensor
- Loose or disconnected rubber tube
- EVAP canister vent control valve and the circuit
- O-ring of EVAP canister vent control valve is missing or damaged
- EVAP canister is saturated with water
- EVAP control system pressure sensor
- Absolute pressure sensor

Possible solution
- Loose fuel filler cap
- Leaking fuel filler cap


Hope helps (remember to rate this answer).

Obd-2 code p1455


DTC P1455 - Substantial Leak or Blockage in Evaporative Emission Control System

The PCM monitors the complete EVAP control system for no purge flow, the presence of a large fuel vapor leak or multiple small fuel vapor leaks. The system failure occurs when no purge flow (attributed to fuel vapor blockages or restrictions), a large fuel vapor leak or multiple fuel vapor leaks are detected by the EVAP running loss monitor test with the engine running (but not at idle).

Check this possible causes:
After-market EVAP hardware (such as fuel filler cap) non-conforming to required specifications
Disconnected or cracked fuel EVAP canister tube, EVAP canister purge outlet tube or EVAP return tube
EVAP canister purge valve stuck closed
Damaged EVAP canister
Damaged or missing fuel filler cap
Insufficient fuel filler cap installation
Loose fuel vapor hose/tube connections to EVAP system components
Blockages or restrictions in fuel vapor hoses/tubes (items also listed under disconnections or cracks)
Fuel vapor control valve tube assembly or fuel vapor vent valve assembly blocked
Canister vent (CV) solenoid stuck open
Mechanically inoperative fuel tank pressure (FTP) sensor


Check for audible vacuum noise or significant fuel odor in the engine compartment or near the EVAP canister and fuel tank
