I would not drive the car until the leak is fixed. If there is a band or clamp the holds the filler tube to the tank try tightening it.
If that does not help then I would check the tube it self and replace it if needed.

What is behind the Thermostat? The piece that it bolt to.. Have a leak. How far back does it go. How do I remove it?


The thermostat is in the housing where the upper radiator hose connects to the intake manifold.
Is the intake manifold what you are talking about ?

My 89 nissan 240 sx fuel EVAP failed the smog test


The carbon canister may saturated. If you are one to try get as much fuel as possible into the fuel tank, that may be how it happened.

Also check the gas cap. There is supposed to be a one way valve to allow air to enter into tank, but not vent out in any direction but by the vent hose to the carbon canister. That valve may be leaking. Also, there is a purge vent to the intake manifold, check to make sure that passage is clear and not carboned up.

Leaking anti freeze from under the air intake hose under tps sensor right where the plenum and upper intake meet it appears


The plastic intake upper plenum is known to warp,causing this leak.I believe too much heat from the nearby EGR port.the solution is more than just a new gasket, an upper intake is usually required.there are aftermarket suppliers,which could save you some money on parts.be sure to check around...good luck

Changing fuel filter .


Just did my 2002 Grand Caravan today,
The filter will come with 3-hoses attached.
Use Safety Goggles to protect eyes from gasoline splash!
1. Disconnect Negative Side of Battery.
2. Depressurize the fuel system.
3. Jack up rear of vehicle. Use Jack Stands to support the vehicle.
4. Chock the front wheels
5. Use Jack with wood and raise up to the fuel tank (just to meet/touch) on the right side (midway portion) of the fuel tank.
6. Loosen and Remove 15mm bolt on middle-right side fuel tank strap-to-body.
7. Loosen and Remove 15mm bolt on rear-right side fuel tank strap-to-body.
8. Loosen and Remove the front 13mm bolt on the front fuel tank strap-to-body.
9. Slightly lower the jack - the right of the tank should begin to drop down 3-4 inches. NOT TOO MUCH: there is wiring connections you may damage!
10: Disconnect the body to fuel tank strap ground from the body.
11. On electrical connections:
a. Slide: Push/Pull back red connector lock.
b. Push on top of release.
c. Pull off the connector.
12. There are three fuel connections/hoses.
a. One on right side - towards the front.
b Two on the top of the tank on the pump. Note how far these are down on the white tubing connections.
13. The fuel connectors are quick connect type. At the top of the connectors are colored protruding tabs. Squeeze those tabs together and pull hose away.
14. If the colored locks remain on the tubes (not the filter hoses) bend the wings away from the tube and this will free them from the tubes.
154 The Filter is connected with a 10mm bolt. Unbolt and remove filter and hoses

When replacing: make sure you fully seat the hose connections. You should hear a click, and observe their position compared to earlier.
Before putting everything back together, reconnect the electrical switch and negative side of battery. Start van and check for leaks.

Gas line is leaking very close to tank. The leak is at the joint where the metal pipe coming from tank meets a rubber hose that runs to filter. It seems to be leaking right at this joint which seems to...


You want to be very careful not to make any sparks while working on this. The obvious is smoking, banging metal tools around, etc. keep cell phones AWAY from the area. Pick up some rubber fuel line from the parts store. Be prepared for some gas leakage, have a plastic pan under the leak. Disconnect the line at the tank, have a piece of new hose ready to push on over the line to as close to the tank as you can, have the end away from the tank plugged up temporarily with a pencil or something that fits snug in it, then remove the rubber hose on the filter, and connect new line from tank to filter, check for leaks, hopefully it is the rubber line you replaced, or the end of the metal line, so the new hose will hopefully cover the corroded leaking area. Clamp and Dry off area and see if you can spot any leaks.
