What year?

Certain model years have a fuel pump that causes leaks and should be covered by the factory warranty that has been extended to cars for 10 years or a 150K miles.

Bring it to a Volvo dealership and complain of fuel smell in the car and ask about some coverage of the fuel pump.

Its most likely either broke the seal on the halfway of the tank or the fill spout has become damaged and needs replacement. id start by testing the pressure of the tank then deciphering whether or not its the tank or the fill spout.

Ford freestyle smell like gas inside


Could be a small gas leak in one of the gas lines or even a leak on top of the gas tank and yes could even be a leak where the fuel pump goes in the top of the tank. Quite often the leak is on the tank top out of sight and it smells of gas even if you have a slight leak.

Gas leaking from bracket holding fuel tank. cant pinpoint leak.is there hoses on the top of the tank hidden from view?


The fuel supply and return lines connect to the fuel pump on the top of the fuel tank. And the fuel tank filler neck connects to the tank with a rubber hose. Thats on the side where you put the gas in.

I have a gas leak and we think it may be the gasket for the fuel pump...can you help me locate it?


A 99 is most likely fuel injected, so the fuel pump is inside the gas tank. The gasket for this is a large O-ring in the top center of the tank and is unlikely to leak. Thus your leak is most likely in the line, put it up on a lift at a muffler or oil change place and look underneath for the wet spot which stinks of gas, that will lead you to the leaking spot. Gas tanks themselves can leak due to corrosion, this can be where road debris collects on top, and if you have a skid plate under the tank corrosion can build up between the plate and the tank eventually eating a hole in the tank.

Good Luck

Leaking gasoline from gas tank after being driven the gas tank is not full and it stops when I relieve the pressure by opening gas cap.


there are allot of hioses and connections to these tanks that can be leaking, the leak in almost always on the top of the tank, u are going to have to get under the car and look for gasoline stains from the leak, if the gas stains go up and over the top of the tank then the tank must come out fro repair.

Front gas tank leaked when I filled the tank


the top of the tank has an opening where the gas guage sending unit is installed. The gasket can give out and it can leak when the tank is completely full, but won't necessarily show signs of leakage when the tank is partially full.
Requires dropping the tank and changing the gasket... hope this helps.

Best bet is to replace gas tank. It could hae a hairline fracture somewhere. Sounds like pretty much everything else was replaced already.
