SOURCE: Help! oil pouring out.

Look a little harder, there should'nt be any external oil lines on your bike, that's probably gas so don't start your bike until you plug that line back into a carb most likely....Good Luck to you friend....Tim

SOURCE: Won't idle without choke

The pilot jet controls the air/gas fuel mix at idle . If the jet gets plugged up not enough gas gets to the emgine at idle. You will need to remove the carbs and float bowls and clean them, paying special attention to the pilot valve. Count the number of turns to remove the pilot screw and replace the same number of turns then turn counter clockwise 1/2 turn.

A “very helpful” rating for this answer? Thanks!

SOURCE: getting gas in breather box/leaks out after shutdown.

I had the same issue, cleaned the gas tank, carbs removed, cleaned and tuned. It helped but still has a rough idle when cold, likely due to a tired float. Best to try cleaning everything first, I had to use a carb guy to get the carbs tuned right for $100 and he remarked on the float not fully functional but I got away with it for a couple seasons. Winterization is essential to keep gas from causing this problem again. Damn ethanol

SOURCE: running rough. no gas going to front plug.

If your plug is dry, then there is no fuel. This can happen for two reasons: No compression - be sure to get a compression tester and ensure that there is enough compression produced by the engine to enable the engine to run. More than likely, though, there is no fuel getting to the engine. When cleaning carburetors, it is important that you use a chemical dip. Spraying carb cleaner through it is not enough. Be sure to disassemble completely: fuel float and its needle and seat, all jets, all emulsion tubes, all air cut off systems and accelerator pumps, all enrichment circuits (choke), vaccum slide and diaphragm, all air jets, and last but not least - the idle air/fuel screw. If this is the first time the carb has been taken apart you have to drill the cap to get to the screw. once everything is apart, soak all metal parts in the Berryman or equivalent chemical dip solution for at least several hours. After, run hot water, as hot as you can stand over all dipped components and blow out with compressed air. reassemble and enjoy.

SOURCE: turn on gas and gas comes out almost all the lines

The problem is with your float inside the carb. It's either stuck or your needel/seat is sticky or there's a piece of trash holding it open. There are several causes but it's a simple fix.

The best solution is to tear the float bowl off and take a look. It can be done without buying any parts.

The proper float level for this bike is between 5.5 and 7.5MM.

I hope this helped.

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.

Hi, Anonymous for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your problem.

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.

Whta can couse the gas pump to stop pumpin while pumping gas in my car


a. There is a Restriction in the Filler Neck of the Vehicle
b. VENT TUBE is twisted and not allowing the Air to escape as the Gas goes into the Tank.

This happen to one of my customers and could not figure it out. Then I said "Let ME SEE".... So I disconnected the Filler Neck off the vehicle and found that someone put a Plastic Bag into the Filler neck and jammed it all the way down to the Tank...

I removed the Partly Melted Bag, reinstalled the Filler Neck and worked perfect

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.
  5. Reinstall the fuel filler cap.
  6. Remove the rear seat cushion from vehicle (if so equipped).
  7. Disconnect the fuel pump motor connector and sending unit electrical connectors.
  8. Disconnect the wire harness grommet and harness through the vehicle floor pan.
  9. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  10. Remove the fuel filler hose clamp from the filler neck assembly.
  11. Remove the fuel breather hose clamp from the filler neck assembly.
  12. Remove the fuel filter inlet hose clamp and hose from the filter.
    NOTE A small amount of fuel may be released after the fuel hose is disconnected. In order to reduce the chance of personal injury, cover the fitting to be disconnected with a shop towel.
  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.
  15. Remove the fuel tank retaining bolts and lower the tank.
To install:
  1. Reconnect all fuel hoses, lines and the fuel breather hose to the fuel tank.
  2. Place the fuel tank in its proper space using the transaxle jack, Install the fuel tank retaining bolts.
  3. Remove the transaxle jack.
  4. Reconnect all fuel hoses, lines and the fuel breather hose to the fuel tank.
  5. Install the fuel breather hose and hose clamp to the filler neck assembly.
  6. Install the fuel vapor hose and hose clamps. Install the fuel return hose and hose clamp to the respective fuel lines.

2006 mercury mountaineer,when putting fuel in it the gas pump keeps shutting off like it full,but its not


There is a vent hose that comes from the tank back to the filler neck, it could also be the filler neck hose. Might be kinked or seperated.

99 buick century i cannot put gas down my filler neck it keeps over flowing and i know it is not full


The vent tube for the gas tank and filler neck is probably clogged or pinched shut. If you get under the car and look at the filler neck you should see a 2nd tube coming off of it, that is the vent tube.
