Question about 1990 Nissan Minivan

Nissan micra car

My Mum has just bought a second hand car, since she has filled the tank the car constantly smells of petrol, but we can see none leaking. We are returning to see the man she purchased it from for a number of faults, he has been really funny on the phone and won't give her a refund. Why would we smell petrol in the car so strongly?? thanks Becky THIS IS A NISSAN MICRA

Hi there, just under the rear seats is where the fuel tank sender unit is and sometimes the seal will leak out strong smell of petrol, you need to remove the rear seats and the sender unit cap and check the seal, may need replacing, hope this helps.

Is it crtical that fuel cap makes an airtight seal on this car Nissan Micra 2004 Petrol


I'm not an auto mechanic - Can't speak for every car or fuel cap, but in general there must be a vent for the fuel tank either thru a vent built into the cap or separately. A fuel tank with no vent will build a vacuum as fuel is pumped out to the engine and eventually the fuel pump will stop pumping if unable to overcome the vacuum or if powerful enough, the vacuum will cause the fuel tank to collapse. Air must enter somehow! Possibly cars these days have a filter/absorbent on a d dedictated vent to remove potential dust and moisture, but none of my cars ever had a fuel vent filter replaced. My guess is that an airtight seal is not critical on any gas or diesel tank cap.

There is a cable going to the fuel door. You'll have to pull the carpet back along side of the fill cap. Tie a string to the cable long enough so that when you pull it out, you can attach the new one to it and pull it through! It probably run down the rocker panel or inside side panel! May require some investigating first...

1993 nissan micra fuel problem, automatoc choke stuck?


Running low on gas will not cause it to **** up muck ,the pick pipe is at one level fixed.This is just the age of the vehicle and possible a steel fuel tank with rust in it .fit an inline fuel filter and put the carb on a sheet of newspaper placed on the kitchen table and strip and clean it out then refit it A quick cure that might work is to remove the air filter and rev it up then place palm of hand over the carb so it stops the engine this will **** some of the muck out of the carb ,just as engine is about to stop ,remove the hand and let it rev again and repeat about 3 times it might help
