SOURCE: fuel leaks out what looks like a vent tube coming from the carbs

Hi ...... Sounds like float levels are set too high or debris in float chamber. Switch petrol off from/at tank and drain fuel from float bowls, if you use the cap off a paint can etc you can catch it and look at it to see if any water or debris present. Retighten drain screws, switch petrol back on and see if it still overflows.

SOURCE: oil blowing out of trans breather tube

hi 81 yamaha i am concerned about the fuel smell coming out with the oil. could be the carbs flooding filling your crankcase with fuel? if not it sounds like you have blow by which would cause your crank case to be slightly pressured. this is caused by worn piston rings. do not plug your crank vent. if you leave your vent open install small filter to stop dirt from entering jim

Yes it is a vented cap which is stuck in the closed position. Get a new cap and you will solve your problem

SOURCE: Fuel leaking into crankcase on 2001 Honda CBR 600

it's probably leaking from the carb and down the cylinder into the crankcase.
it is probably due to a stuck float in the carb. take the float bowl off and make sure it is clean. the float can also be full of gas not letting it float up and stop the gas flow. the carb will fill up and leak wherever it can which is likely the case

SOURCE: Fuel runs out the the right vent tube and breather

Most likely the diaphragm in the fuel tap has a hole in it .The way your fuel system works is that, when the bike cranks and starts it generates a vacuum in the inlet manifold, a pipe from the manifold goes to the fuel tap. The vacuum in the pipe pulls the diaphragm in the tap away from the holes in the tap ,letting fuel flow past the diaphragm and down into your carburetors ( gravity fed).
If there is a hole in the diaphragm the vacuum will **** fuel through the diaphragm and down the vacuum pipe flooding that cylinder and starving the others.
I hope this helps.

When filling the gas tank gas shoots back out at me


Sounds like you have a venting problem with the breather hose.
There should be a hose coming off the neck of the gas filler pipe somewhere that relieves pressure out of the tank when you fill and when your pump sucks fuel it lets air in to balance the pressure. I would suggest this breather pipe is either bent or plugged somehow.

Gas tank vent


filler neck vent hose to tank/vent line from tank to carbon canister under hood that then hoses to fuel throttle body.

The hose is on the side of the gas cap and it runs down to the bottom of the quarter panel. When I filled the gas tank up, gas comes out of this hose. We just had the fuel pump replaced. Its not leaking...


There are normally two hose lines from the fuel filler that run to the tank. The larger one carries the fuel from the nozzle to the tank. The smaller one is a vent hose that allows vapors to leave the top of the tank while filling. These vapors come back to the nozzle area and can be vented and/or collected by the nozzle depending upon air pollution standards in your area. If your second hose is running to the bottom of the quarter panel, it is probably the vent hose that may not have been reconnected at the top of the tank when the fuel pump was replaced. The fuel running down there is from kickback fuel at the time the pump shuts off. The real problem is that the vent line is open on top of the tank and when the tank is full, that can allow vapors and fuel to escape out of there and it could contact hot exhaust areas - a major fire or explosion hazard. Have this inspected and repaired IMMEDIATELY.

Evap system


The FSM is clear on this. each hose and fitting must be air tight.
or the the car vents gas fumes full time, and the EVAP ECU tests
(monitor) make sure this all works.
you can just look at the left and right side above rear tires. and see
if your hands are small enough to fit here. Id bet not.
some mech, report, the tank can be tilted down at front (drained fuel)
and gain access.
keep in mind, you get fuel siphoning at any time. do not open the system, with fuel in the tank, and then drive to autozone,
i loosen the gas cap so that pressure can not build in tank.
expanding fuel can push fuel out , during a filter change. very
dangerous in a garage, and you gone.
it's just a vent hose, you can see, it and what needs to be done is really obvious. given you arms sides and lenght.
my fsm states, " TANK pull"

Removal & Installation

  1. Relieve the fuel system pressure and disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the fuel filler cap from the fuel tank.
  3. Have a Class B fire extinguisher near the work area. Use a hand operated pump device to drain as much fuel through the fuel filler neck as possible.
  4. Use a siphon to remove the remainder of the fuel in the tank by connecting the siphon to the fuel pump outlet fitting.
    CAUTION Never drain or store fuel in an open container because there is the possibility of a fire or an explosion.

  13. Remove the fuel vapor clamp and hose, and fuel return hose clamps and hose from the respective fuel lines.
  14. Using a suitable transaxle jack, support the fuel tank.

You either have an obstruction in the filler tube or the vent tube on the filler is clogged so it is not allowing air to escape as the gas is going in.
