Many bikes have a fuel overflow at the fill opening at the tank. So excess fuel can drain to the ground. This is done with a tube that comes from the rear of the tank (close to the seat) and routes down under the frame to the ground. If that tube is routed to your battery box then you have a safety issue. Make sure you do not have this drain tube/hose routed to your battery box. I am sure you don't want a fire under your seat.

Why does it start hard runs great when running when sits for an hour or so starts hard again new seals new gas lines gas in line can it be bad reeds ?

Hi, Jeff and the usual suspects are:
1. Spark plugs in bad condition or have an improper gap or are partially fouled.
2. Spark plug cables in bad condition.
3. Battery nearly discharged, should have 12.5 volts.
4. Discharged battery, check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
5. Throttle controls not adjusted correctly.
6. Water or dirt in the fuel system.
7. Water or dirt in the carburetor.*
8. Intake air leak.
9. Fuel tank vent hose and vapor valve plugged, or fuel line closed off, restricting fuel flow.*
10. Enricher valve inoperative.*
11. Engine lubricant to heavy (winter operation).
12. Ignition is not functioning properly (possible sensor failure).
13. Faulty ignition coil.
14. Valves sticking.
* Carbureted models.
Good luck and have a nice day.

How do I drain fuel tank on 2003 fxdwg of bad fuel

Pull the fuel line off the carb, and stick the end in a gas catch can (gas can).

Remove gas cap (to allow more air in and help fuel flow faster), and put petcock on RESERVE.

It'll drain through the fuel line into the catch can.

How do I change the fuel filter on 1996 chevy cavalier?

The filter should be in the fuel line under the car between the gas tank and the engine.
On some models it is in the engine compartment, and on others it is in front of the gas tank.
You squeeze a clip together on one end and the other end has a threaded pipe nut.
Make sure you release the pressure in the line before you take the line loose.

Car cut off like it ran out of gas, there is plenty of gas

check fuel pump is working, go to the engine compartment and take the fuel line off the injector rail and place it in a bottle then have a friend to turn the engine over and see if you have a steady flow of petrol flowing into the bottle, if you dont have any fuel at all id say its your pump. if you have a start stop flow or a week flow try changing your fuel filter

Car wont run how can I determine if the problem is the fuel pump?

Disconnect the fuel-in line from the fuel filter, located in the engine compartment, and place the end of that line into a container. Turn the ignition to on. If fuel flows strong from the fuel line, your fuel pump is ok. If no gas, something is wrong with the fuel pump or no current is getting to the fuel pump.

I ran over a large rock during a recent snow storm. There are 4 lines that run from the engine area to the back=possible fuel line? One of the lines was compressed. What are the four lines? Do I need to...

I am not familiar with the Yaris, having never worked on one, but a steel line from the engine area back could be: transmission cooling line (automatic trans.), or a brake line, or as you stated, a fuel line. You need to follow the line forward and backward for a clue to there beginning or end to help determine what it is. A brake line would go to the back of the wheel, and to engine compartment to master cylinder on firewall, a fuel line would go to the gas tank, to engine compartment, trans. cooling line would go to trans to radiator.
Yes, if the line was crushed and compressed by striking the rock, you should have it repaired. It would limit whatever fluid travels through it, which could cause problems (insufficient cooling for the trans., brakes not working due to no fluid to brake caliper/cylinder, engine starving for fuel due to restricted flow.

Where is the gas filter

trace the fuel line backwards and you will see the little bubble
most filters are in the engine compartment and alongside the wheel well

Pumping fuel into the car takes forever ,and gas backflows

Fuel Backing up in the fill nozzle is most often caused by a restricted fuel tank vent line. This vent line runs from the tank to a charcole filter that stores the tank vapors while still allowing air to pass. It is typically located in the engine compartment. Look for a pinched hose first in the engine compartment. Typical hose diameter is 10 mm or less. If you have had recent work done on the car in the fuel tank area, this also may have resulted in the line being pinched or rerouted in error.

good luck

Discovery land rover will not fire.

try taking the air cleaner assembly off you might not be getting enough air to engine
if this is the case then the throttle body needs to be maintenanced

heres another suggestion it just hasnt sucked gas to the engine to crank over sometimes they help

go out buy an electric fuel pump
find the fuel inlet source to engine hook up electric fuel pump
attach only ground to something in engine compartment
then get a can so that when gas comes out it has something to go into
tap the electric fuel pump power lead to the positive of battery let run till gas comes out make sure not to spark your working with gas
once gas becomes present detach electric fuel pump all the way set aside
hook gas line back to port and then start vehicle this should start

also with fuel filters there are 3 on a vehicle
one in engine compartment
one on chassis back by the tank
and one in the tank called the sending unit this has a filter in the tank this one could be clogged
make sure these filters are in the right position with gas flow flowing in right direction
