It's either a gas tank leak or, if your lucky, a leak in the gas line. Either way have it repaired immediately by a reliable mechanic. t is not a DIY job unless your very familiar working on cars.

Rain water is getting in, through my trunk I believe, and soaking my back seat.


its along way from the trunk to the back seat. check the back window,and the doors, get a water hose and have someone inside check it for a leak. Water in the trunk is usually caused by bad seals at the tail lights. But water in the trunk usually stays in the trunk and spare tire area. If the car has been wrecked, then who knows.

When my 95 Lincoln is parked on the sightest grade (front facing down), water gets into the floor of the trunk. Gasket is still flexible. Underneath is also dry? Any ideas? Thanks


Had a similar situation in my service station wherein the gasket was flexible, however it was not affixed correctly....it was loose. We loosened it a little more in the suspect area, cleaned it and used gasket sealant (Part 8001 -Yellow comes to mind but there is a black one as well as others) to re-adhere it. Check to see exactly where the water is leaking in by parking it downhill and using a hose or such to wet it, while continually opening the trunk until you can determine where the water enters the gasket area. Also clean the channel immediately around the gasket to facilitate this process. Also, if need be, check to make sure that the water is not leaking in from the rear window mounting area. Check for even minute tears in the gasket as well. I'm not sure what you mean by "underneath is also dry" though.

Moisture in truck, with check gas cap message on dash


The two are of course not related. Check the trunk seal for missing portion, tears, splits, etc. this has to be where the rain is coming in. You can check for leaks with a hose and climb in the trunk with a flashlight, having a trusty helper direct water to one area at a time to check for the leak. The gas cap light is probably on due to a defective evap. vent valve, which is located behind the left rear tire near fill tube for gas tank.

2002 mazda miata mx5 has strong gasoline smell in trunk. Had smoke test done at dealership and showed no leaks. Help.


The fill pipe is right back there. Check to see if a hose has been damaged. Check the spout area, is there a overflow pipe or a seam that could be leaking into the trunk?

Nissan skyline 1988 .Noticed a petrol smell in and around back of car. looked underneath and there is petrol leaking out of the top of the petrol tank. Any suggestions please


A lot of Nissan models have an inspection cover in the trunk that you can remove to get at the fuel pump in the gas tank. If not there, perhaps under rear seat, but should be in trunk. Locate it, remove it and have a look for possibility of broken or cracked piece of fuel line hose attached to pump, or look around for other source of your leak. Careful with trouble light near fumes!! Use a good flashlight if you can. Be sure to relieve system pressure before doing anything on fuel lines if that's the problem.

Lexus ES300 trunk leaks when it rains


This may sound odd but if you can put a small person in the trunk with a flashlight while you pour water in the areas suspected, they can trace the leaking area, believe it or not I used to use this method while I was a Ford mechanic. Otherwise, maybe you can apply clear or black silicone to the area or remove the screw or bolt and coat it with silicone and replace it.
