I had the same problem as this. There is a pipe that runs from the petrol tank around and up into the air inlet shaft under the spare wheel well. I am not sure exactly what it does I think it has an expansion valve on it. There is a join in this between two tubes that join. This is a simple piece of fuel tube with an internal dimension of say 5mm. If you feel your hand into that air shaft there, locate the fuel tube feel your way along the pipe, you will find the join. Just pull the old one out and put a new piece in. Very simple. really

Gas cap leaks


Has anyone checked the venting system for the gas tank ? If the van is 1990 or newer the engine computer should be venting the tank to the vapor canister.

GAS ODOR IN A 2005 PONTIAC SUNFIRE


could be corroded gas lines or gas tank,the carbon cannister or leaking injectors and or if you have a tendancy to fill your tank more at the gas pump to the rim of the filler cap the filler neck that connects to the gas tank by means of a rubber seal may be ruptured. check for gas leaks under the car and in the engine bay,first with the car running and then with the car,s engine shut down and around the filler neck.it could be as simple as having to replace your gas cap. good luck.

Gas is not getting from gas tank to Carburator .. 1987/88 Wrangler 42. engine was recently rebuilt .. gas tank sending unit was removed and repaired .. fuel line was blown out with air compressor. fuel...


Make sure you have the lines attached correctly on the sending unit and make sure there no small holes in the line. The pump pulls fuel and will draw in air. To make sure the pump is good, attach the tank side to a container of fuel and see if the engine starts. (keep the container below the pump or it can start a siphon and appear to be OK when it's not)
If the repair to the sender involved soldering up a line leak, make sure the line is not still leaking and that the line has not filled with solder.
It's a really simple system...there are no "trick" items there. If everything is intact and the pump is good, it has to work!!!

I own a 1978 motor home with a qne ton van frame\r...


Over an extended period of time gas will evaporate in a carburator. It's possible that presure is leaking off in your fuel pump as well. A weak pump will have trouble maintaining pressure over a period of time and will have trouble building pressure back up. Starting the engine on a regular basis and letting it run for a few minutes will cure the problem and help keep the engine seals from drying out and leaking. Converting to an electric fuel pump will also make it easier to start after sitting for a period of time.
Any generic LOW PRESSURE electric pump will work. It only needs to put out between 7 and 9 or 10 pounds pressure. Unhook the fuel lines from your mechanical pump and hook to the electric. The li ne from the tank goes on the inlet end. The electric pump usually ground through the case so it needs contact with bare metal or a wire running from the case to bare metal. Run the power wire to a powered wire in the engine compartment that powers on and off with the key or to an accessory fuse in the fuse box. It should run through a 20A fuse.
Hope this helps.
