I have a 04mt-01 and mine did it to me yesterday for the first time. There was so much gas that it soaked through my leathers and through my shirt. I noticed a nice burning sensation and by the time I could get stopped I couldn't get my leather and shirt off fast enough. Luckly I was at a place that I could wash off with soap and water. I've never been burned before by gas and I didn't know it would do that. This must get fixed. I believe that the dealer will replace the cap under warranty, but I will find out on Tuesday for sure.

Coolant and oil leak

have a compression test done as the bubbles suggest a blown head gasket or cracks. That will account for the overheating. The oil leak may be from the head gasket or cracks.

Replacing fuel filter @ under carriage? How to stop fuel from escaping when I disconnect?? Do I need special tools?? Thanks Lee

You cant escape some fuel leak. To get the least amount of leak, Let sit overnite without running, Then replace, No special tool should be required

I have 2000 chevy impala 3.4 engine i have check engine light with this code p0442 took it it to auto zone they said it was a small leak dont know where to start

This indicates a fuel vapor leak in the EVAP control system. It means a very small leak has been detected. In fact, the leak can be from a hole as small as 0.04" in diameter. The (EVAP) emission control system prevents the escape of fuel vapors from a vehicle's fuel system. Fuel vapors are routed by hoses to a charcoal canister for storage. Later, when the engine is running a purge control valve opens allowing intake vacuum to siphon the fuel vapors into the engine.
code P0442 most likely means one or more of the following has happened:
  • A loose or improperly affixed gas cap
  • A non-conforming gas cap (i.e. not factory/original brand)
  • A small leak/hole in a fuel vapor hose/tube
  • Other small leak in EVAP system
  • Faulty vent o-ring seal
With a P0442, the most common repair is to:
  • Remove and reinstall the gas cap, clear the codes, and drive for a day and see if the codes come back.
  • Otherwise, replace the gas cap, or
  • Inspect the EVAP system for cuts/holes in tubes/hoses

Gas smell when starting and small dripage when back up from under engine

It sounds like the return fuel line is leaking. There are two fuel line and one is the high pressure line which goes to the fuel pressure regulator then to the fuel rails. There is then a return line from the fuel rail to the gas tank.
With the amount of fuel leak, it's going to be the return line since it's not that bad compared to the high pressure side. Follow the fuel lines from the drivers side around the steering shaft to the engine. The high side and low side (return) run side by side and you should see it leaking when the engine is running.
Good luck and hope this helps.

Check engine light on DTC P0456

P0456 is a code set when there is a very small leak (theres very small leak, small leak and a couple of others, your code indicates the smallest level of leaking). This can be caused by a vacuum line that is cracked or otherwise leaking on the evaporative (EVAP) system. It could even be from a gas cap that is not sealing properly, though typically a gas cap leak tends to set code P0441. Just the same, and since it is the cheaper way to go, start by replacing the gas cap and see if that clears the code and any check engine light you may have.

Once you replace the gas cap you may need to disconnect the battery for a couple minutes to reset everything if you dont have access to a scanner that can do it.
