It bogg down on full throttle and gas leak on top of the tank while running


if you have a fuel leak from top of tank then it could be a fuel line or O ring leaking, which can cause a drop in fuel pressure causing it to bog down. if its a steel fuel tank the tank could be rotted out. either way fix fuel leak first and go from there.

Gas leak at gas tank saturn aura


If it is coming from the top, it could be a bad seal for the sending unit or seals for the fuel lines. If it's from the fill hose, replace it.

Ford freestyle smell like gas inside


Could be a small gas leak in one of the gas lines or even a leak on top of the gas tank and yes could even be a leak where the fuel pump goes in the top of the tank. Quite often the leak is on the tank top out of sight and it smells of gas even if you have a slight leak.

Failed smog test ; gross air leak at vapor recovery system. Replaced gas cap from parts house with a dealer supplied gas cap and the gross leak is gone but a minor air leak is...


If you just want to get through the smog test,they usually allow one monitor test to be incomplete and still pass.
If your area does,clear the codes and fill the fuel tank to the top.The other monitors should run and complete but the fuel tank monitor will not run with a full tank of gas so will not turn on the check engine light related to a tank vac leak.KEEP THE TANK FULL,and go get your smog test!

Why does my svt contour gas tank overflow into the parking lot when filling up.


There are two hoses running from the filler neck. Either of them could be leaking from the top. There is also a seal on the top of the tank where the fuel pump is that can leak. If your car leaks the whole time you are putting fuel in, I would suspect the hoses. If it only leaks when you get it full, then check the seal on the top of the tank. The top of the tank can be seen without dropping the tank. Remove your back seat and you will see a cover over the fuel pump. Remove that cover and you can see the top of the tank.

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.

Front gas tank leaked when I filled the tank


the top of the tank has an opening where the gas guage sending unit is installed. The gasket can give out and it can leak when the tank is completely full, but won't necessarily show signs of leakage when the tank is partially full.
Requires dropping the tank and changing the gasket... hope this helps.
