Question about Hyundai Santa Fe

1 Answer

Whenever I pump gas into my vehicle it leaks from just under the place you pump at. The gas line is visible from under the wheel well and I can see where it's leaking at. Not more than 6 or 7 inches down the line. Can I just apply some type of apoxy? I am really broke and can't afford to have it repaired in a shop any time soon.

Since you are broke I will not charge you for the advice.
The cheapest remedy is to wrap a cellophane sheet around it and then tie a string tight enough to not let any fuel leak above and below the leak point. Back it up with thick cello tape tightly. Make sure you dont choke the fuel hose.

92 Jeep cherokee Laredo....u can smell gas while it's running and just after it's parked also after driving i can hear dripping coming from around the gas tank but haven't seen any dripping or...


The first and most important thing is to stop driving the vehicle IMMEDIATELY!

All modern cars and light trucks with gasoline engines use a relatively high pressure fuel system, with the entire system pressurized from the tank up to the engine, as well as a return flow circuit. Depending upon the nature of the leak, you have a serious potential for a disastrous fire to occur here, because the leak, if on the delivery side of the system, can spray the fuel out in a fine mist that will travel quite a distance and is very easily ignited. Return side leaks, while at a somewhat reduced pressure, are still to be considered a serious fire risk.

Older vehicles with engine-mounted pumps maintained the pump inlet line (the line from the tank) at a slight negative pressure while in operation, so leaks there were less serious while also being more likely to kill the engine.

Now ... as to the leak itself... All that you can do is to get under the vehicle and LOOK! There will visible evidence of the leak. It is possible that the leak is the tank itself, a line connection to the tank, the tank unit seal, or even the tank filler neck. However, if the leak occurs during operation and for a short time afterwards, but then stops, I'd bet on a delivery or return line problem.

Once the location of the leak has been pinpointed, the proper fix can be determined...

My vehical is leaking fuel from the gas tank


Most likely cause of this is the steel lines on the top of the tank being corroded, BUT,

-If it leaks only when you fill up, it could be the fill hoses.

-If it leaks as soon as you fire the vehicle up, it will be the fuel pump assembly being rusted (consists of a fuel pump, fuel gauge sensor, lines and wiring, and is located in, and at the top of the fuel tank)

-If it only starts to leak after you have been driving for a bit, over bumps etc, then most likely it is the tank itself

Hope this helps

Check the fluid level in the brake resivior. It sounds like you have a leak. Check all the brakes and look for ruptured lines or a leaking caliper. If no leaks at the wheels and along the brake lines the issue would be the master cylinder or hydo boost unit.

Does a 1991 chevy s-10 blazer have inline fuel pump?


  1. Place wheel chocks behind the passenger side wheels, and lift the driver side of the Blazer with a floor jack. Place jack stands under the frame, and lower the vehicle onto the jack stands. Supporting the truck with the jack stands in this manner prevents injuries that occur if the floor jack fails.
  2. 2 Remove the fuel filler cap, and turn the ignition key to the off position. This relieves some of the fuel pressure on the system, and prevents the fuel pump from starting when the filter is removed.
  3. 3 Locate the fuel filter on the driver side frame rail, just behind the front door. The filter is a cylindrical shaped part, about six inches long, that's in the fuel line on the inside of the frame rail.
  4. 4 Place a drain pan under the filter to catch any fuel that spills. Loosen the filter fittings by using a 21mm wrench to hold the filter while turning the flare-type nut on the line with a 16mm wrench. Remove both sides of the fuel line from the filter and drain it into the drain pan.
  5. 5 Check the rubber O-rings located on the fuel line ends for tears and nicks. Replace any O-ring seal that shows damage. These seals are available at your local auto parts store.
  6. 6 Insert the fuel lines into the ends of the new filter, and thread the flare-nuts into the filter by hand. Be careful not to cross-thread them and cause the need for replacement fuel lines. Tighten both lines with the 21mm and 16mm wrenches.
  7. 7 Raise the truck off the jack stands with the floor jack, and remove the stands from under the vehicle. Lower the Blazer to the ground. Reinstall the fuel filler cap.
  8. 8 Turn the ignition key to the "Run" position--and then back to the off position--three times to prime the new filter. Each time the key is turned to the "Run" position, the on-board computer turns the fuel pump on and opens the injectors to add fuel for starting. Start the engine and check for fuel leaks.

This has an electric fuel pump located in the gas tank.

To replace or check it you do one of 2 things. You can drop the tank or cut a hole in the cargo area to gain access as they are on the top of the tank.I would not suggest cutting hole

Low Fuel Pressure on Landrover Freelander TD4


From 53 reg onwards, diesel pump is under R.H. rear wheel arch, hidden by the plastic wheel arch liner. Older versions have combined fuel pump/sender in the tank (under R.H part of rear seat).
You should be able to hear a faint purr from the pump when ignition is turned on but engine not yet running.

How do I replace power steering pump on my 2003 BMW 325i ?


first Allow the engine to cool completely Make sure all connections have been tightened to the proper torque settings; power steering fluid pumps at an extremely high pressure.Apply penetrating spray to bolts, nuts, and hose connections Chock all wheels that are not raised off the ground. Don't forget to dispose of all used fluids according to local laws.
First, remove the old pump. You may need to raise your vehicle. Use a jack to do this. For added protection, place a safety stand underneath that part of the frame. (Caution: always use extreme care when jacking up your vehicle and putting it on a safety stand.)
If you are working near the battery, remove the negative battery cable. Remove any parts that might get in the way of pulling out the power steering hoses or pump. Drain the power steering fluid from the reservoir. To do this, you disconnect the feed and return lines and drain the fluid into a drain pan, or use a siphon. (You may need special "line" wrenches to loosen the lines if a regular wrench doesn't do the job.) Make sure to loosen the lines before removing the pump mounting bolts. To avoid possible combustion, take care when draining the fluid to avoid spilling it onto any belts or exhaust parts.
Remove the power steering pump bolts. On some vehicles, you can loosen the bolts by placing a socket through the holes in the pump's pulley.
You may be able to return the old pump for a core refund, so drain it completely of fluid and place it in the box from you new pump. To install the new pump, first install the pulley from the old pump onto the new pump, if necessary. Place the new pump in the proper position. If possible, attach return and feed hoses to the pump before bolting it in place. Install pump mounting bolts; torque to specification. (On V-belt models, tighten but don't torque the bolts yet
Attach and tighten feed and return hoses to pump. Double-check all connections for leaks. Reinstall any belts that were removed; adjust belt tension. Tighten V-belt style mounting bolts after you have adjusted belt tension. Reinstall other parts that were removed (shields, brackets, exhaust, etc.).
Fill system with new power steering fluid. Check for leaks. If there are none, place the lid on the reservoir. Reconnect the negative battery cable. Start engine; again inspect for leaks.
You will need to "bleed" the system to remove any air. (Note: bleeding instructions vary from vehicle to vehicle. Check a repair manual.)
Raise both front wheels off of the ground. With the engine running, slowly turn the steering wheel left to right, lightly touching the steering stop points. Check fluid level. Repeat in order to remove all air. After you are satisfied all air is out of the system, lower the vehicle. Job complete

This could be any number of issues, you could have a leak in your fuel tank or lines, or more likely in that vehicle, a leak in your injector rails or the lines that feed the injector pump
