Gas leaking from tank

What would be the most likely cause for gas leaking onto the ground off the front of the gas tank on my 1993 Ford Escort? The gas leak looks like it is coming from the top front of the tank and running down the front side of the tank,then collecting on the bottom and onto the ground.

This sounds like you have a leak at the fuel pump and sender unit, either in the unit mount or in a fuel line. Check under your back seat for an access panel if you have one then remove it and look at the pump and sender mount to see what is leaking, you may have to start the engine to get it to leak as it may only leak under pressure, hope this helps, let me know

The first thing to do is to check the neck area for possible leakage. Good Luck

The gas gauge for the front tank on my 1992 F150 is stuck past full


You probably have a ground wire not making contact to ground on the front tank sending unit. OR the sending unit itself inside the tank is faulty. Either way, when a gas guage goes to full all the time (empty or full), this indicates that NO ground is available for the sending unit.

Check fuel cap light staying on after I replaced it with a new one from the dealer. It is a 2002 Ford Escort Any suggestions:


Is the check engine light on also ?
The gas cap light comes on when the computer tries to vent the gas tank and finds a leak. The leak can be the gas cap or in the line from the tank to the vapor canister, among other things.

1989 ford f-250 460 c. i. super cab with dual fuel tanks. Will only run on the rear tank and then forces gas out of the front tank thru the filler cap onto the ground. It will not start or run when...


I would suggest the Equalizer valve for the Twin tanks has failed. Track the fuel supply and return lines to locate its position.

Fuel leaks on ground when I fill tank of a 1994 ford escort. Also fuel smell after I drive.


If fuel is leaking on the ground after filling the tank, then the tank should be removed to find a hole in it, it maybe at the top, also check all the fuel lines at the tank. Hope this helps, let me know.
