Any fuel leak is a problem and down the exhaust is a major problem that needs to be addressed. Replace the gas tank if it's the gas tank leaking but most likely will be a fuel line leaking from corrosion. Replace the affected are of the fuel like that is corroded and leaking.
Thank you for using fixya and be safe.

How can I diagnose & fix a fuel leak in a 2005 dodge caravan?


check to see if the fuel filter is leaking at line connections as the filter is on top of the tank. if so replace the filter. check the seal for the tank unit that seals this to the tank. being this new it should be good its more likely the fuel filter.

Gas leaking front passenger side of ford windstar


Have you looked under the hood? (I don't mean to sound like a wise guy.) There are two shiney metal pipes one on the front of the engine and one on the rear as you look at it from the front. They run from right to left on the engine. These are the fuel racks that feed the fuel injectors, (assuming that you have a 3 litre or larger v6 engine). These can concievably rust at the left, (passenger), end and blow gasoline out the passenger side. It is also possible that gas could be leaking anywhere on the engine and roll off the passenger side of the engine or if the fuel line on the driver's side has rusted over a cross member of the frame and possibly roll to the passenger side. Also, there is pretty good pressure on the fuel line when it is running. If there is a rust hole on the right side of the line itself, it could spray to the passenger side, hit something and drip off from there. These are just possibilities. Good luck. Jeff M.

Smelling gas fumes in passenger cabin. Cannot detect any smell under hood. Does it have a cabin air filter ?


There are rubber gas line hoses under the hood & after a number of years they tend to leak ever so slightly. They are under the hood to the passenger side. You may need to replace these fuel lines. There should be a cabin filter but you must take the wiper motor screen off to get at it & it is on the passenger side. Good luck!

1994 chrysler concorde radiator overflow tank hoses leaking


It sound like there may be a small leak in the cooling system. You can check this by pressurizing the cooling system. You can buy a pressure checker for about 100 dollars. It will usually show up leaks that are small because you can pressurize the system cold and it won't evaporate.
