Easy fix but needs to be fixed, having fuel leaking on this bike can be very dangerous as the exhaust pipe can ignite the fuel and cause a big problem, just go to local automotive store with old hose and match diameter and ratings shouldnt be more than 20 bucks at the absolute most

Replace petcock in 2000 heritage

I replaced the factory petcock on my 2000 FXDWG due to a friend having his stop working. The factory one is vacuum operated. If the diaphragm leaks it won't let fuel go to the engine.

You will probably have a bit of fuel leak during this so don't do it near any source of flame or ignition. Keep rags or an old towel handy and I recommend a fire extinguisher just to be safe.

Just drain the tank thoroughly into a container you can seal like a regular gas can, not an open pail. An open pail will allow gas fumes to spread out and they can be deadly. Turn the valve to off, and remove the hoses.
One for the gas and one for the vacuum.

Remove the factory petcock by turning the large nut that pinches it to the tank. Now you can slip it down out of the tank. There is bound to be some gas dripping off the strainer so expect it.

If you are replacing it with another factory petcock just do everything in reverse making certain the hoses have a good seal.

If you are installing a manual valve without the vacuum function, you will need to plug the vacuum hose or the engine could run lean and overheat. Make sure that new valve has a fuel strainer on it to prevent junk from going to the carburetor.

I recommend putting only about a gallon of gas in to check for leaks. If all is well, fill it up and go for a ride.

Note: If the reserve tube is shorter than the one on the factory valve you will not have as much fuel in the tank when you have to switch to reserve. That happened to me. My factory valve would make me switch to reserve when I had about 30 miles worth of fuel left in the tank. The new one would only leave me about 20. So beware of that until you learn where it hits reserve.

My harley is leaking gas from the reserve/on switch. why

Bad seal or loose hoses. Replace valve or put better clamps or could be a crack in the housing or nipple. I wouldn't mess with it. It is a nice bike, just get a new valve and hoses, they are 14 years old.

Engine stalls essesive gas consumption

When does it stall? Give me some more details. But in the mean time Im gonna guess vacuum leak. Turn the car on and spray carb cleaner at the vacuum hoses. If you hear the engine wind up you know there is a vacuum leak in that spot. For your engine to stall and take a lot of gas its gotta be a big vacuum leak. But it might not even be a vacuum leak but its something to check into. It would be a cheap and easy fix if it is just a leak! Give me some more details if its not a vacuum leak. Good luck!

How much work is it to fix a leak. it is spraying out anti freeze up by the motor. It looks like maybe the where the seal may go

If the leak is a hose, not a big deal. Drain antifreeze disconnect hose, instal new hose, refill antifreeze. If the leak is a water pump also not a big deal, same procedure.
If the leak is in the radiator, a bit more complicated. Radiator can be replaced or repaired by a radiator shop.
If leak is coming from somewhere else on the engine, could be more serious, like a gasket leak. If this happened you would get fluids mixing ( oil/gas)
Good luck. A Haynes manual is a good investment for your car.

Brakes seem to "let up" when trying to come to a complete stop, does not do it when only slowing, like during highway driving

It sounds like you may have a vacuum leak. The brake booster stores enough vacuum to give you pedal assist when stopping. The supply is not unlimited. Sometimes there is a cannister to increase the reserve and the cannisters look like a coffee cans and rust through. Or the brake booster (big round thing) behind the master cylinder can leak. There is also a valve on the supply line which can leak.

To test these areas technicians use a gas like propane while the engine is running and use a hose to route the gas around the seams of the brake booster, supply valve, and backup cannister I mentioned.

When the gas is drawn into the engine, the rpm will increase and you will know there is a leak. The propane will not hurt the engine and some states check emmisions with propane as well.

You may want to do a vacuum test of the engine to see if it is putting out enough to give you good braking.

Dodge Caravan 1990 coolant leak..

do not put water in your radiator. Use 50% mix of antifreeze and water or you will corrode your engine. Add coolant mix to cold engine. Fill the reservoir and the radiator. Warm up eninge while looking for the source of the leak. If lucky, it will be the lower radiator hose. Easy repair. If it's the engine block, big problem. Let us know what you find.

Gas leak

You can buy the fuel pipes and if you are handy with tools, you should be able to do the repairs. Source the pipes from motor factors.
