How to fix a leaky Toro 20007 fuel tank

Fuel tank is leaking along the seam. I am not able to find a replacement fuel tank because the engine manufacturer is out of business. How can I fix it or find a replacement fuel tank?

If the fuel tank is metal take it off and clean the seam with sandpaper and use JB weld to repair it- If plastic tank, use a glue gun.

This almost sounds like a pinhole in the primer bulb but I need to know if you did the following. Did you remove the jet and venturi tube in the bottom of the carb. and clean the BRASS orifice hole and BRASS tube holes? If you did not then It will act just like the symptoms you described. Also check to see if your float bowl nut has holes in the side of it. IF it does then make sure the hole(s) are clean. Also make sure the fuel selector is all the way ON. Adittionally if the carb to block mating gasket is torn or not secure it will also perform as you stated.

Lastly the open the fuel air mixture screw on the side of the carb about 1/8th turn and see if the performance changes.

If the problem persists ....
This is dangerous due to the risk of fire but....

If you have any carb cleaner you can give it a quick shot in the nmating areas just after you start it before it gets hot to see if it speeds up. If it does, you have a vacuum leak. It is better to use an unlit propane torch if you have one.

Thanks for using FixYa,


P.s. If the problem does persist I will need your complete engine number to proceed in troubleshooting.

Hi, check the crankcase seal directly above the blade carrier. Also check that the crankshaft is not bent as blade carrier damage usually occurs from the blade hitting something hard. Hope this helps, regards Phil

SOURCE: Toro model 30941 fuel leaking thru air intake

Its likely the diaghrams in the carb are stiff and holding the needle open causing the unit to flood. Remove the spark plug and turn the unit upside down over a towel and pull the start rope a few times. This will help remove all the excess fuel from the crankcase. Once the crankcase has been purged of excess fuel perform a compression test and check for spark. If its over 90 psi and you have spark rebuild the carb with new diaghrams.

My car smells like gas when I turn the engine off. The smell is NOT in my car but smells up the garage

Possible leaky fuel injector/regulator/fuel line. Possible disconnected/loose fuel purge/vent line. Possible leaky fuel filler tube or fuel tank. You will need to have the fuel system/lines inspected to determine source of smell. Not something I would put off as a major leak could develop and spill fuel on hot engine/exhaust causing fire

Fuel leaking at tank when motor is running, stops when engine is off 1992 Honda Accord

The fuel pump for this car is electric and is located inside the fuel tank, so you have a leaking fuel line, when the pump is running you have a leak, when the engine is shut off the pressure goes away and no leak.

Cannot get fuel to come out of tank to carb for starting. have trx engine 3.3 in a revo model 5309.tks engine will run if you inject fuel directly into carb.

Could be an air leak or seal problem with the fuel tank. One fuel line goes to the carb, the other line that goes from the exhaust pipe to the fuel tank pressurizing the fuel tank so that fuel will be forced to the carb. I would check the fuel lines and tank for leaks. The tank can leak air around the lid or a seam in the tank itself. I would also check any inline fuel filters for blockages or leaks also.

Hard start on cold mornings; replaced plugs but did not fix; fuel filter?

If the vehicle runs normally otherwise, your fuel filter is likely not the problem. A plugged fuel filter would likely cause misfiring under load, such as when going uphill.

Make sure, by the way, that you do not touch the gas pedal when starting. That could make it hard to start.

Old fashioned cars used a choke to feed it more fuel for a cold start. Modern cars use a computer to feed the fuel injectors more fuel on a cold start, and rely on a sensor or two to know that it's cold.

Couple of possibilities here:

a) Has the check engine light been on? If you have a bad sensor, such as oxygen, throttle position, or coolant temp sensor, the computer may have an error code stored in it's memory about this.

b) How many miles on the vehicle? Some other problems could be leaky injectors, leaky injector 0-rings, or intake manifold air leaks, all making it difficult to start when cold.

A fuel pressure gauge on the fuel rail would tell you if a leaky injector is causing the fuel pressure to drop....then a cold start would be difficult if there is no pressure in the system.

If there is a leaky o-ring or intake manifold, the vehicle will typically misfire and/or light a check engine light.

First check to see if there is a fuel shutoff under the tank. On some models there is a fuel filter screen inside the tank where the fuel line connects to the tank. If niether of these work, R&R the carb.

Replace leaking fuel tank

Remove the filler tube. Remove the rubber fuel line and plug. Remove the attaching bolts for the tank. Place a jack under the tank with a block of wood and slowly lower the tank down. Don't forget to unplug the wiring harness too. The possibility is high that the seam is leaking. A few aftermarket companies offer the tank. Do some shopping though, prices are different with the different companies.
