In the 03, the bottom of the back seat has two (2) spring hooks about 12 or so inches from the side (looks like this, o= hook _= front of seat bottom), (_o____o_). Just pull up on each one and the seat bottom will come up and out/forward. The seat back has a couple of bolts that you will see once you remove the seat bottom. Remove bolt(s) and slide the seat back to the outside. There are two (2) "windows" to the tank. One on driver's side that will be visible when you remove the seat bottom (and pull back the carpet and insulation, and one behind the seat-back on the passenger's side (this is where the fuel pump, et. al. is/are. Driver's side is just the second float. There is a wire and hose that connects the two floats, so you may want to disconnect the battery to avoid any electrical current in the tank.

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.

I have a fuel leak somwhere near the gas tank. There is fuel which leaked on to the rear axle but I can not find the source.


IT MIGHT HAVE COME FROM THE FILLER TUBE TO THE GAS TANK! OR POSSIBLY ONE OF THE FUEL LINES ATTACHED TO THE TOP OF THE TANK! ON A NEWER CAR, YOU CAN ACCESS THE FUEL PUMP INLET FROM UNDER THE BACK SEAT! DEFINATELY CHECK THIS OUT, AS IT CAN CAUSE A FIRE, AND YOU COULD GET HURT!

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

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.
