    I took your suggestion, the Auto Parts Store manager told me that it won't work. It might fix it for a short time but won't last. In most cases he said it is not worth it.It will have to be replaced.

    I don't understand your evaluation of my response. What was your expectation?



    In my experience, with a plastic tank or fittings ... in a situation such as you describe - replace the tank or fittings or try to repair what you have. You can always replace the tank - the expensive thing to do - or you can try the easy thing ... repair it ... for probably fewer than $10.00. Simple



    Most people come here to find the simple solution, in this case, repair is the simple thing to do. If that doesn't work, you can always replace it or have it replaced.



    I don't think your rating is justified. ... But then maybe I didn't understand your question.



    Thank you for using FixYa.com

2002 Lincoln ls has a gas leak when I go to the gas station and put 15$ or more gas starts rushing out not all of it maybe 5$ worth which is enough and as I drive it today I see a small leak


I can see your picture that you posted. Each tank can usually only leak from a few places. The filler tube, the overfill tube, the fuel line going in, the fuel line going out, or a seam in a metal tank. Also, seeing as how A lot of pumps are made of plastic, it could be leaking from there also. As I stated before there is also a rubber O-ring between the pump and the tank which could also leak. Other than that, that is it, unless there is a hole in the tank. Please be cautious

Fuel filler neck


Hi I'm Peter, Not sure what your problem is from just posting fuel filler neck however I am assuming you have a strong gas smell. The rubber hose that connects the filler pipe on the tank to the fuel spout may be cracked and leaking. Another common problem is the tank vent tube that runs from the tank up along side the filler tube may be rubbing on the metal part of the tube and has a hole in it. This will give you the strong fume smell and possible fuel leak as will the rubber filler tube when the tank is full. These vehicles are known for this problem and also the metal filler pipe rusting causing a pin ole. Look to see if you can see rust anywhere . Even if you don't see rust on the outside does not mean there is not rust on the inside. I have seen where a lot of people have been have the rust issue also to the point they carry the part at auto parts stores . Hope this is what you needed.

Gas leaking from bracket holding fuel tank. cant pinpoint leak.is there hoses on the top of the tank hidden from view?


The fuel supply and return lines connect to the fuel pump on the top of the fuel tank. And the fuel tank filler neck connects to the tank with a rubber hose. Thats on the side where you put the gas in.

I have a 2007 Chevy Equinox that has a gas smell noticeable once it is driven. No leak evidence and it has been suggested I check the "gas filler tube vents". Is this a possibility?


Also check your fuel pressure regulator, the fuel rail to fuel line connection end the injectors themselves for signs of leaking. The fuel pressure regulator has a vacuum line connected to the top of it. Make sure this is secure. If the fuel pressure regulator has failed it will allow fuel to enter the vacuum line and this will cause the smell of fuel under the hood. Also make sure that the emission control pipe from the fuel vapour canister has not become disconnected from the intake plenum.

Fuel leaks from filler pipe to gas tank


You don't need to replace the gas tank, the filler pipe is connected to a rubber hose which connects to the tank with clamps at each end.

1995 maxima fuel filler tube


Are you going to get a new one, or a junkyard replacement?
You have to take off the rear left tire. Secure the car with jack stands and chucks. There is a plastic cowl on the wheel-well that covers the filler tube to prevent road damage. Take it off. The filler tube is attached to the gas tank through a rubber connector hose (tube) adapter, secured to the gas tank and to the filler tube by hose clamps. Loosen both clamps.. You should replace the rubber connector, as it has been there for many years, and rubber degrades. Loosen about three or four bolts along the filler tube that attach it to the car body. The top part, by the gas lid, comes off easily, it's just a plastic dam. You have to carefully work it off the (other end) at the rubber hose connector. Once it's out, get the hose connector off the gas tank neck.
With the new filler tube, reverse the process. Getting the hose clamp tight over the gas tank neck is hard. Make sure the clamp is seated properly before tightening.
Good luck!

Gas tank filler hose on Ford E Super Duty Motor Home


Look again into the fuel filler there should be a metal hose which is where the tank gets it's air from, ensure when your filling up your not pushing the fuel filler gun fully home when filling up, suggest you don't fill the tank right up to the very top as your correct it's a big job & you will need parts before you take the tank off. http://passionford.com/forum
