Cranking but not starting until second try.gas smell.Gas line replaced.Had spark plugs, fuel filter changed.Still having starting issues and today noticed leakage near gas tank.

Gas line was only repaired, not replaced. I don't repair gas lines because of this problem. The entire line is replaced, both of them, supply and return. From the tank to the injector rail. This is the reason for the long start. Loose of fuel pressure.

96 Mercury Villager gas leak from front drviers side

A somewhat common problem on Nissan cars and imports that use clamps for fuel lines. Altho not usually that major.
Often times the rubber fuel hoses leak in very cold weather. The fuel lines going to the tank are on the driver side. So is the fuel filter.
I have to tighten up a clamp every winter on my 98 Villager when the temp drops below 30 degrees.
If the leak is major enough to leave a puddle on the ground you should have no problem finding it.

How to change fuel lines

There should be only 2 fuel lines and a vent line coming out of the tank. The vent line is for fumes that are routed to the charcoal canister-part of the evaporative emissions system, and the two fuel lines are the main feed line to the filter and then on to the engine, and the other gas line is the return line from the engine back to the gas tank. All fuel injected systems have a feed line and a return line. The return line is for fuel not used but sent back to the tank by the fuel pressure regulator.
Nowadays, rather than replace metal lines, shops can use the plastic fuel lines (they don't rot!) and special connectors to fit new fuel lines. YouTube has lots of videos on replacing fuel lines.

No I dont think you can as I cant on my 98 oldsmobile achieva and they are basically the same car. Almost all parts are interchangeable between the two.

No power at fuel pump

All depends on how old the gas is in the gas tank, if it's been in there for a long time. The gas may have turned in to varnish and your going to have to drain it and put in new gas. Also replace the fuel filter, but is there any gas in the car??? It's know for the gas gauge to go up if the tank is empty.
Start with the simple and check all your fuses and the relay for the fuel pump and then replace the fuel filter and gas in the fuel line if it's been in the tank for a long time. Also make sure the fuel pump is working, you should get a fuel pressure reading on your shredder valve which is located on your fuel injector rail.
Thank you for using Fixya and keep me posted if you have more questions.

Smell gas in car

Look for fuel leaks in the engine bay or back by the tank where you fill up the the tank. A little bit of gas will go a long way so if you had spilled a little while removing the nozel at the gas station the filler neck will disperse of it, sometimes it gathers on the inside of the fender, and causing for a smell that may not be an issue. On the other hand if you notice the smell under the hood you may have a leaking fuel line, check to see if anyone has replaced the fuel filter recently sometimes the technician does not tighten the lines securely causing a little fuel leak. other times its just a little fuel spray from not releasing the pressure before removing the filter may have sprayed the fuel on the car onto maybe the insulation. One thing to do is look under the car while it is running myabe after filling it up to check for leaks. If your notice a drip while the A/C is running dont be alarmed as this is the condensation dripping off as it is supposed to.

1998 hyundai accent, i got bran new gas tank good gas pump good injectors puted on new gas filter this spring and my god dam gas pump/ filter will not top clugging up.. then my motor misses gas all i do is...

its a new tank before you fitted the tank it would need flushing. this is a lining they put on the inside to stop contamination, also to make sure its not been used, the same takes are on diesels and petrol engines and you don't want to mix them up so there is a film on the take to say its not used. you will need to flush out the tank. and flush your fuel lines injectors etc. when you bought the take they should of told you about the lining, or there should be a sticker on the tank to flush out before use.

Sounds like you are rusted out. Even the factory parts are not that expensive and they are properly bent. Check the dealer.
If substituting aftermarket piping you want to either replace the bad section with a splice or the whole piece. Notice the end connections and where you will attach the replacements.
Notice the routing of the gas line away from hot exhaust parts and areas a lift jack will crush your line. Notice what moves close to the fuel line to allow for travel.

You may be able to splice a piece of rubber fuel line into a metal line with a few clamps.

I have seen everything you will need at Autozone and Oreillys and similar stores with the exception of Factory parts.
