Rusted fuel line or rotted rubber fuel line from fuel pump. Could also be fuel pump outlet is rusted. If fuel leak only occurs when key is turned on - this actvates the fuel pump and vehicle need not be running - then it would be one of the above. I had this problem on other vehicles as well.

Diagnostics code po401 honda passport not shifting


code p 0401 refers to exhaust gas recirculation valve (EGR) system insufficient flow detected ====causes --hose leak/blockage --basic setting not carried out (if applicable)--wiring--EGR valve --EGR solenoid---ECM
has little to do with not shifting unless the leak is affecting the vacuum actuator for the transmission
so check for vacuum leaks in hoses in the engine bay

96 honda shadow VT1100C fuel leak


if you always put as much gas as you can especially when its cheaper you are probably getting fuel into the fume emissions part of the entire fuel system. see if you can find a diagram of your fuel tank system to be sure its vacuum and not fuel. don't top off . its the worst thing to a fuel system

The cost to replace the tank will be the cost of a good one from the wreckers and the time to have it fitted.. However check that it is not a loose/ leaking hose first unless you have a hole underneath

It may just be the fuel pump seal at the top of the tank. it has to be dropped for a definite diagnosis. It is rare but the tank seams occasionally crack too. Good luck.

I drive a 96 honda civic..it's been smelling like gas every time i drive it and seems to lose gas faster than normal. Would this be a possible gas leak? How much would this cost to fix approx.? I just...


hi, the problem is the gas could be leaking from several places the most common place is where the metal pipes come out of the tank and join to a rubber pipe this is the usual place of a leak.

But as you say you smell gas when you drive the car if you mean whilst driving the car you actually smell the gas inside the car then this indicates that the leak would be coming from under the bonnet as if it was leaking at the tank then you would only smell fumes when parked up or getting in and out the car.

Now as it looks like the leaks under the bonnet then the likely cause is going to be where the fuel pipe joins to the fuel injector rail as the engine vibrates and this pipe dont then this causes this pipe to split.

Now as for costs your looking at about an hours labor but as i live in the uk and hours labor here would be between 45 and anything up to 90 pound an hour depending on where you take the car (main dealers your looking at 100 pound to 150 pound per hour)
As for parts a piece of pipe would only be 5 pound or so so the actual pipe would not be expensive.

But you can never guarantee its going to be a strait forward job the leak may turn out to be a corroded metal fuel pipe from the tank this is not very likely but does happen from to time now this would cost between 25 to 35 pound for the pipe.

So you would have to work out the exchange rate to get rough figures but in uk i would say about 75 to 100 pound to do the work and get the car back to normal.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Many thanks for using fixya.com

2000 HOnda Passport with rough idle, how do I identigy a vacuum leak or any other problem which might cause a rough idle


you can use propane to find a vacuum leak take a bottle and put a rubber hose on it so you can direct it in specific spots and just let a little gas flow if you find a vacuum leak it will bring the RPM of the motor up slightly do not light the torch just let the gas come out
