The tank has to be dropped to gain access to the top of it. You may be able to find preformed lines available from a manufacture like Dorman at a local parts store. Ford may actually still have the lines available, but being 18 years old there's no guarantee.

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.

MY CAR SMEELS LIKE GAS IN THE BACK SEAT SOMETIMES I DONT THINK THE GAS TANK ITS LEAKING WHAT ELSE COULD IT BE?


Sounds like your fuel lines are leaking, These are located on top of the fuel tank, There is 4 lines that come from the pump . One may have rubbed a hole in the return line and getting fumes inside the auto.If so these have to be replaced by removing fuel tank and removing fuel lines. Good luck to you.

Theres a gas tank leak comining from the top of the gas tank. what could this be /


Not knowing your milage or what part of the country you live in if they use salt on the roads. The leak is coming form the three fuel lines going into the gas tank and fuel pump. The fuel pump is inside of the gas tank secured by a large slip ring seal. From the years gone by these lines rust and since they are under pressure they will leak through. You will have to drop your gas tank to get to this. This is a ugly all day expensive job. Replace the fuel pump which comes with the new seal and fuel lines assembly. I could sit here and tell you the step by step procedure but that will take hours. The very best thing you can do is buy a Haynes repair manual for your car and year at any auto parts store @ Advanced, Autozone. Read the step by step in the manual. I have used these for 40 years with all my vehicles and saved tons of cash in labor costs. Be prepared to replace the gas tank straps and additional fuel lines depending on how bad the rust is.
Good luck and thanks for your question and I hope my suggestions help. Don't forget to rate me.

I have fuel leaking from the top of the gas tank where the fuel pump sits. Is this something I can fix?


Might be the gasket of the fuel pump, a corroded fuel line or corroded fuel tank. The solution is replace the gasket, the fuel line or fuel tank. If fuel tank starts leaking, and if you plug a hole today, another is doing to appear tomorrow. Replace it with a plastic one. You have to lift up the car and work from underneath.

Have a 1995 GMC Sierra Truck. Gas is leaking from somewhere by the gas tank. It only leaks when the truck is running/doesn't leak sitting still but I can't see where it's coming from. What is the best plan...


Sounds like the fuel pump. Its located inside the fuel tank so it would make sense that it only leaks when the truck is running. Hope this answers your question. Best of luck.

Fuel leaking from top of gas tank


sounds like you are going to have to drop the tank out to inspect and fix. with luck it will be leaking from the fuel pump seal or the return line.
Bad luck would be if the tank is rusted out and needs to be replaced.
Syphon as much gas out of the tank as you can before you drop it , gas is heavy.

Best bet is to replace gas tank. It could hae a hairline fracture somewhere. Sounds like pretty much everything else was replaced already.
