It is called gas tank filler hose. You usually can purchase that rubber hose section seperately at an auto parts store or dealer. Make sure to change clamps also.

I have 2002 Lincoln ls that is leaking gas from the top of gas tank by fuel pump I've replaced the fuel pump could it be a bad gas line when I go to fill up with gas some of it runs out as I am pumpin

Does the pump have wick disconnects that required a tool to remove them? There are orings in those as well as a large oring sealing the pump to the tank. Make sure the connectors click when you replace them. The pump should activate with the key on. " not started", you should be able to see if the lines are leaking or if it just your fuel fill overflow hose leading to the fill door alongside the large full hose.

Code p0442 and p0455. When I start the truck it takes about 5 seconds to actually start. If I turn it off and start it again, it starts right up.

Well code 442 is a small EVAP leak and 455 is a large leak. Those codes could be a faulty gas cap or any leak in the gas tank venting system including the gasket around the fuel pump. The engine computer pressurizes the gas tank when the engine is running to check for leaks.
The starting issue could be a faulty check valve in the fuel pump allowing fuel pressure to drain back into the gas tank.

Volvo s80 2003, I just got it have drivin it with only putting quater of a tank of gas in it code p0455 has been on. I filled the tank for the first time the other day and parked it in my garradge. In...

code p0455 refers to evaporative emission (EVAP) system--large leak detected.===causes--hose connections--intake leak-- EVAP canister --EVAP canister purge valve. There is a possibility that the filler hose to the tank is loose or cracked and when you filled the tank it is running out of the cracked hose. The same applies to the hoses from the tank to the canister and back from the fuel manifold. I would pay attention to the purge valve as if it is not working then fuel smells become a problem also

My jeep is throwing a code for a vapor leak. ive checked all hoses nothing to seems to be leaking but my jeep has a very strong odor of gas

Your problem is most likely coming from your gas cap. Your vehicle's gas cap may seem tight, but the rubber washer around the inner edge of the gas cap may be defective. Go purchase another gas cap for your car at one of the nearest auto part's location's nearest you. Change the gas cap and reset your vehicle's computer by taking the positive terminal off for a minute and replace the battery cable back on the vehicle. This method reset's your vehicle's computer. If the gas cap is the main problem, your check engine light won't come back on and your problem is solved. Gas is highly combustible and dangerous. always use precaution's when doing any work on your vehicle that require's working with any part's associated with any part's of the gas emission's system including the gas tank, gas cap, purge solenoid, charcoal canister, fuel filter, fuel pump, etc., etc. the gas smell can also be coming from a broken or faulty rubber gas line or the metal clamp's connected to the rubber hose's located between the gas tank fill valve and the gas tank itself. there are several black rubber gas hose's associated with the gas tank. have a qualified technician check the gas emission's system for any and all leak's gas also evaporate's fast, do to the combustibility again always use caution when attempting any and all repair's requiring checking the gas or emission's evaporation system. Sincerely Crystopper.

  3. Remove the fuel pump access plate beneath the rear seat.
  4. Label and disconnect the fuel hoses and electrical harness.
  5. Raise and safely support the rear of the vehicle.
  6. Label all fuel lines for installation reference.
  7. On 240SX models, remove the exhaust center tube, driveshaft, differential carrier and rear suspension member.

  9. Remove the fuel tank protector assembly.
  10. Remove the fuel tank band retaining bolts while supporting the fuel tank with a transmission jack.
  11. Slowly lower the tank assembly from the vehicle.
To install:
  1. Position the tank assembly on the vehicle.
  2. Install the fuel tank retaining bands and tighten the bolts to 20-27 ft. lbs. (26-36 Nm).
  3. Install the fuel tank protector assembly.
  4. Connect the fuel filler hose and vent hose. Tighten the hose clamps securely.

I hope this helps... If the exhaust as been changed or modified it might be necessary to loosen.
