On my 2000 ford windstar i cant get fuel to go in the tank it backs up in the fill tube and runs back out,what could cause that?

Rick ,is there something blocking the hose to tank? or is the hose kinked , the tank must have a breather tube also working to allow fumes and pressure to come out of tank or fuel will back up.

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"

I have a harley davidson 2004 1450 and has oil coming out of the front jug breather going to carberater

Hi 1hdbiker60, oil leaking from your air cleaner is caused by oil carryover from the engine. For what ever reason the breather system is not seperating enough oil mist and air from the piston downstroke. There are cheap and quick easy fixes and there are more exspensive ones. Start by trying the following:
1. Run your oil level half way between the add and full mark when hot.
2. Run oil breather lines from head into a TEE fitting below carb/induction module then a single line into a mini filter under frame.
3. Purchase Arlen Ness Super Sucker.
4. Replace umbrella valves and realign oil pump
5. Upgrade oil pump and cam plate
Good luck and have nice day.

Where is the fuel pump located in a 1990 geo prizm? Is it in the fuel tank or on the fuel line?

Electric Fuel Pump REMOVAL & INSTALLATION The electric fuel pump used on fuel injected Nova and Prizm cars is contained within the fuel tank. On 1988–92 models it cannot be removed without removing the tank from the car. NOTE: Before removing fuel system parts, clean them with a spray-type engine cleaner. Follow the instructions on the cleaner. Do not soak fuel system parts in liquid cleaning solvent. CAUTION
The fuel injection system is under pressure. Refer to the procedure above and release pressure slowly and contain spillage. Observe no smoking/no open flame precautions. Have a Class B-C (dry powder) fire extinguisher within arm's reach at all times. 1988–92
  1. Release the fuel system pressure as outlined earlier.
  2. Using a siphon or pump, drain the fuel from the tank and store it in a proper metal container with a tight cap.
  3. Remove the rear seat cushion to gain access to the electrical wiring.
  4. Disconnect the fuel pump and sending unit wiring at the connector.
  5. Raise the vehicle and safely support it on jackstands.
  6. Loosen the clamp and remove the filler neck and overflow pipe from the tank.
  7. Remove the supply hose from the tank. Wrap a rag around the fitting to collect escaping fuel. Disconnect the breather hose from the tank, again using a rag to control spillage.
  8. Cover or plug the end of each disconnected line to keep dirt out and fuel in.
  9. Support the fuel tank with a floor jack or transmission jack. Use a broad piece of wood to distribute the load. Be careful not to deform the bottom of the tank.
  10. Remove the fuel tank support strap bolts.
  11. Swing the straps away from the tank and lower the jack. Balance the tank with your other hand or have a helper assist you. The tank is bulky and may have some fuel left in it. If its balance changes suddenly, the tank may fall.
  12. Remove the fuel filler pipe extension, the breather pipe assembly and the sending unit assembly. Keep these items in a clean, protected area away from the car.
  13. To remove the electric fuel pump:
    1. Disconnect the 2 pump-to-harness wires.
    2. Loosen the pump outlet hose clamp at the bracket pipe.
    3. Remove the pump from the bracket and the outlet hose from the bracket pipe.
    4. Separate the outlet hose and the filter from the pump.
  14. While the tank is out and disassembled, inspect it for any signs of rust, leakage or metal damage. If any problem is found, replace the tank. Clean the inside of the tank with water and a light detergent and rinse the tank thoroughly several times.
  15. Inspect all of the lines, hoses and fittings for any sign of corrosion, wear or damage to the surfaces. Check the pump outlet hose and the filter for restrictions. To install:
  16. When reassembling, ALWAYS replace the sealing gaskets with new ones. Also replace any rubber parts showing any sign of deterioration.
  17. Assemble the outlet hose and filter onto the pump; then attach the pump to the bracket.
  18. Connect the outlet hose clamp to the bracket pipe and connect the pump wiring to the harness wire.
  19. Install the fuel pump and bracket assembly onto the tank.
  20. Install the sending unit assembly.
  21. Connect the breather pipe assembly and the filler pipe extension. NOTE: Tighten the breather pipe screw to 17 inch lbs. and all other attaching screws to 30 inch lbs.
  22. Place the fuel tank on the jack and elevate it into place within the car. Attach the straps and install the strap bolts, tightening them to 29 ft. lbs.
  23. Connect the breather hose to the tank pipe, the return hose to the tank pipe and the supply hose to its tank pipe. tighten the supply hose fitting to 21 ft. lbs.
  24. Connect the filler neck and overflow pipe to the tank. Make sure the clamps are properly seated and secure.
  25. Lower the vehicle to the ground.
  26. Connect the pump and sending unit electrical connectors to the harness.
  27. Install the rear seat cushion.
  28. Using a funnel, pour the fuel that was drained from its container into the fuel filler.
  29. Install the fuel filler cap.
  30. Start the engine and check carefully for any sign of leakage around the tank and lines. Fig. 1: Fuel tank components — 1988 VIN Code 5 engine (Nova) 84225048.gif

96 Ninja zx6r Fuel Tank breather hose leaking gas

It sounds like that hose which runs fron the cap area (inside) the fuel tank to the back bottom is broke, if you take it to a Kawasaki dealer and have your dealer call Kawasaki there is a good chance it will get covered as long as the tank is damaged. Those hoses (metal) that run inside the fuel tak sometimes crack, there is really not way of fixing them unless you cut the tank open and then you would need to reweld it.
