Why does my svt contour gas tank overflow into the parking lot when filling up.


There are two hoses running from the filler neck. Either of them could be leaking from the top. There is also a seal on the top of the tank where the fuel pump is that can leak. If your car leaks the whole time you are putting fuel in, I would suspect the hoses. If it only leaks when you get it full, then check the seal on the top of the tank. The top of the tank can be seen without dropping the tank. Remove your back seat and you will see a cover over the fuel pump. Remove that cover and you can see the top of the tank.

1993 tercel(115,000. mi), is it possible for the seal between the fuel pump and fuel tank to begin leaking? Getting small residual leakage running (it appears ) of the top half of fuel tank.


Remove the back seat cushion, the bottom one, and the fuel pump is right there underneath. It has a panel that covers the fuel pump which youll see after you remove the back seat. Remove the panel and you will see whats leaking. Most likely either the fuel inlet, outlet or return line is leaking.

But if something is leaking you will definitely see it.

MY CAR SMEELS LIKE GAS IN THE BACK SEAT SOMETIMES I DONT THINK THE GAS TANK ITS LEAKING WHAT ELSE COULD IT BE?


Sounds like your fuel lines are leaking, These are located on top of the fuel tank, There is 4 lines that come from the pump . One may have rubbed a hole in the return line and getting fumes inside the auto.If so these have to be replaced by removing fuel tank and removing fuel lines. Good luck to you.

2000 ford windstar gas smell on the inside only no gas leaks already changed the fuel filter the pcv valve is fine as well .where is the smell coming from? and why is it only on the inside and u can't...


Check and see if you have any gas on the ground after you park your car. Check around the gas tank and gas cap. It's possible that the fuel pump (which is in the gas tank) has hoses that may be leaking. If this is a slight leak, it might only manifest itself via a gas odor into the trunk or passenger compartment. It might be a good idea to put the car on a hoist and follow the fuel lines from the engine to the fuel tank. There should a one line that takes the fuel from the fuel tank to the engine and another that brings back the excess. There should also be another line coming out of the fuel tank that is for venting. Unfortunately, the fuel pump and hose connections are not easily accessible and require either removing the gas tank or cutting a hole in the trunk to access it. You should definitely take care of this soon as leaks don't get better, only worse and it is a potential fire hazard. Good luck!

Gas leaking from tank


This sounds like you have a leak at the fuel pump and sender unit, either in the unit mount or in a fuel line. Check under your back seat for an access panel if you have one then remove it and look at the pump and sender mount to see what is leaking, you may have to start the engine to get it to leak as it may only leak under pressure, hope this helps, let me know

The fuel pump, CV joints, plugs and wires all need replaced


I love my Stanzas.. Years ahead in design .. Drove the girlfriends new 2009 Dodge Calibre today and amazes me that all the column stalk controls are almost the same as my 1990 GXE ..
The good news is you don't have to drop the gas tank !
Just remove the upper portion of the back seat for access to the fuel pump and the sending unit : )

Monster fuel leak


if the gas is leaking from the top of the tank, 10 to 1 it's either the fuel line, or the top part of the sending unit which is probably made of plastic, is cracked where the fuel line connects to.The tank should be empty or near it, easier to drop, loosen the tank strap bolts towards the front, then remove the rear ones one at a time, as you take the last rear bolt out, the tank should drop a little. Becarful of the wire connection and fuel line, drop it slowly enough to reach in and disconnect them.If the unit has a plastic hose connection, it needs replacing. good luck.

93 lexus LS 400 how do I replace the fuel pump?


You will have to remove your back seat to gain access to fuel pump. Fuel tank is located in trunk. No need to take fuel tank down.
