    No,the filler is metal with a ring on it,then there is a plastic lock clip ring.they both look to push into the tank flange..I dont see a o-ring seal or a gasket....the whole *** moves in and out,there is something missing..

The filler tube is separate from the tank. They are joined with a rubber sleeve. Most likely it is not pushed on fully causing your leak. If you can loosen the hose clamps & twist the hose on better

    You have the tank with a different style neck which is uncommon. A sleeve was not reinstalled then

The hose is on the side of the gas cap and it runs down to the bottom of the quarter panel. When I filled the gas tank up, gas comes out of this hose. We just had the fuel pump replaced. Its not leaking...


There are normally two hose lines from the fuel filler that run to the tank. The larger one carries the fuel from the nozzle to the tank. The smaller one is a vent hose that allows vapors to leave the top of the tank while filling. These vapors come back to the nozzle area and can be vented and/or collected by the nozzle depending upon air pollution standards in your area. If your second hose is running to the bottom of the quarter panel, it is probably the vent hose that may not have been reconnected at the top of the tank when the fuel pump was replaced. The fuel running down there is from kickback fuel at the time the pump shuts off. The real problem is that the vent line is open on top of the tank and when the tank is full, that can allow vapors and fuel to escape out of there and it could contact hot exhaust areas - a major fire or explosion hazard. Have this inspected and repaired IMMEDIATELY.

Where is the fue pump located on an 97 buick lesaber


The fuel pump is located inside the fuel tank. If you have a major leak, there are a few things it could be. The filler tube you put gas into during a fill-up goes directly to the fuel tank. The filler tube may have a hole in it; If your tube is rubber, the clamp at the fuel tank may need replaced; you may have a fuel line leaking near the fuel tank, The fuel tank may have a hole in it. A fuel leak is a hazardous situation, so take extra precautions to be safe and have it repaired asap.

Fuel tank leaks when filling at the pump


I'd check the clamps on the filler tube hoses. Also check to see if they are kinked, especially the small hose.

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.

Can't fuel xg350 2002 at gas station difficult


there is a tube that runs along side the filler neck to the gas tank, this tube allows air to escape from the gas tank as you fill it, if it gets kinked or obstructed then you have a hard fill situation, pull the filler neck/vent assembly out and replace it.

Ford Windstar 2001 Gas filling problem


The fule tank vent tube is blocked/clogged. It's the little hole next to the filler hose that invites spiders that clog it up. Blow out the tube and it fixes the problem.
