Why is gas leaking out my Evap fresh air hose every time i try to put gas in my car and start it


I suspect you are OVERFILLING your tank...

There should be a direct connection from your canister to the top of the fill tube. It is intended to safely draw out gas fumes.

even if you don't OVERFILL... gasoline can expand (coming from the cold ground... into a nice warm car) enough to repeat the symptoms you have depicted.

Try putting in less gas...

Things will most probably resolve themselves... otherwise you might need a new canister.

Be safe... DO NOT OVERFILL.

Code p0442 and p0455. When I start the truck it takes about 5 seconds to actually start. If I turn it off and start it again, it starts right up.


Well code 442 is a small EVAP leak and 455 is a large leak. Those codes could be a faulty gas cap or any leak in the gas tank venting system including the gasket around the fuel pump. The engine computer pressurizes the gas tank when the engine is running to check for leaks.
The starting issue could be a faulty check valve in the fuel pump allowing fuel pressure to drain back into the gas tank.

After my car sets for an hour or so. Ill start it its slow to start sometimes dies. Then i smell gas under the hood. Does anyone have any suggestions.


Hi Sean, I'm glad to help!

Sean, the only suggestion I can give in this case is. It sounds like it may be flooding out. This could be because of leaking injectors. What happens is when you turn the engine off the injector will continue to leak into the cylinder until there is an abundance of gas then when you try to start the engine the gas needs to clear before it will start and your smelling all that raw fuel being pushed out of the tail pipe. If you are mechanically inclined then remove the fuel rail and while watching the tips turn the key to the on position. CAUTION: DO NOT try to start the engine, simply turn the key to the on position. If one are more injectors are leaking after turning the key off then replace the leaking injectors. NOTE: Sometimes carbon build-up on the injector tip will also cause then to leak. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Sean.

You shouldn't have any gas smells, maybe a little if the engine were cranking over without starting. But your car is not even cranking, right? Or will it crank and not start? In that case you might smell a little gas, so next step would be to check for spark.

The leak on front passenger side: if that is where the front of the engine is, check carefully your water pump for leaking (then it is bad) and also check all hose connections there for leaks.

Sudden no-start conditions are usually loss of either spark or gas to the cylinders. These are the first things to check when it won't start.

Gas would leak out of a cold, hard, rubber fuel line. When the car warms up, the rubber line swells and seals itself up until it gets cold and leaks`again. Find that leaky fuel line asap or you're risking an engine compartment fire every time your car is started, when it's cold out.

Fuel Leak


I wouldn't drive or start it with a fuel leak, it needs to be up on a lift to see it all clear, before any proper diagnosis.
