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.

When i put gas in a certain point it runs out from underneath


My Rodeo did that and we found that the O-ring that seals where the fuel pump sit's in the tank was shot and leaking. To fix you have to run your tank low and find a pit where you can drop the tank and remove the fuel pump and install a $.50 O-ring......Gary Arnold

Leaking gas tank on 06 pontiac g6 gt


This is something that is hard to answer without looking at your vehicle.I have seen some of these leak around the filler neck spout at the tank and others leak at the fuel level/pump module. or it is possible ran over something. either way if you have a gas leak it is not safe to drive. if experienced look at tank and see where leaking if running down from the top it is most likely the fuel module(pump) hope this helps some

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.

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.

My 89 ranger has been sitting for 7 years. i got a new battery for it and it will crank but will not start. i am not sure where to start looking to fix the problem. before it sat it ran like a champ.


Hi,
Is it getting gas and fire?
If so and you don't have fresh gas in the tank, I would suspect some bad gas after sitting for 7 years.
Hope this helps. Good luck!

Saturn 2002 sl seems a small gas leak on top of gas tank-is it usally the line? cant see where on top of tank.because its still in the car. thanks.


The fuel pumps on this particular model are known to crack. The plastic part of the pump usually cracks across the top which usually results in a leak. Only way to fix is to replace the fuel pump assembly. I have seen this happen several times on this exact model car. Hope this helps. If you need anymore information, let me know.

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.
