Tighten gas cap message, replaced gas cap, had emission leak fixed, had termastat leak fixed, still getting tighten gas cap message


"Tighten gas cap" means
  1. That there is an air in-leak somewhere in the vapor recovery system of the car. Hoses and hose connections is a suspect place. So is the electric carbon canister vent valve. OR
  2. It also can mean out of spec gasoline from the discount gas station.
If this was my car I would:
  1. Top up with some decent gasoline.
  2. Have the local shop clear the code and see if it comes back. Maybe do this several times until I am sure all the suspect gasoline is gone.
  3. If it does, and as a last (expensive) resort, have the shop or dealer "smoke test" the emission system for leaks.
Good luck.

Why does gas leak from primer bulb when engine stops


A primer bulb pulls in fuel so it creates a vacuum and will leak if a hose is loose or the bulb has a small hole in it.

Gas leaks on the ground when refueling from a blk tube underneath my car 2011 ford tauras


There is a over flow tube that is connected close to the top of the filler neck. It allows fuel to return back to the tank instead of overflowing back out towards you and covers you up with Gasoline. That area could have been in a accident at one time and not been repaired right or a Factory Fault, not likely to be the age of the car.

Carburator leaks gas when cycle is started or running from what looks like vent hose?


Sounds to me like your float valve is obstructed by some debris. This is causing it to stay open and leak fuel. Better it leaks to your vent hose than it leaks in your engine and contaminates your oil.

You need a proper carb cleaning. Not some run in the gas tank sh*t. If the tank wasn't full when parked, chances are there is rust in the fuel system to get this out you need to disassemble the carburetor and thoroughly clean it.

Try not to ride the bike til you do this. It's a fire hazard.

I am smell gas inside the vehicle, comes thru the vents i think. is this my fuel pump or fuel filter or something else


You likely have a leak in the line somewhere and the fumes are getting into the car through the vents. I would not drive the vehicle very far before having it throroughly checked out by a technician trained to repair gas linesa and leaks.

Did you note any gasoline on the ground when you stop the car? I would not play around with this problem for long as gasoline is extremely volatile and flammable.

Best Poulan Engine Match (probably real manufacturer):
http://www.ordertree.com/modelinfo/PWE/BC2400-Gas-Trimmer-Type-6/75.BC2400-Gas-Trimmer-Type-6.1.59.1.html

My decisions are being driven by my experience with Poulan chainsaws. Small hose in tank (long enough to reach all corners), filter on bottom, connects to lowest connection on carburetor. Small hose on upper carburetor connection to small fitting on primer. Large hose from large connection on primer through largest tank hole, roughly mid tank long. nothing on bottom. I suggest you leave the 2 connections on the carburetor long enough they can be swapped (just in case) then try it. if no go swap them.

Typical fuel system and a suggestion or two:

This is how I would configure it if a chainsaw, doubtful they would do something completely different. In defense of Jerry, he knows how it should be done, clarity of instruction could use some help. Good Luck. HTH

The dash number of your serial number is the type.
A helpful video, a few of my suggestions and a typical fuel system follow:

  • The hose in the tank with the filter on the free end connects directly to the carburetor input connection.
  • If the saw is equipped with a primer bulb, an output line from the carburetor connects to the suction side of the primer (once the bulb is collapsed it draws fuel from the tank through the carburetor to refill as it inflates).
  • The pressure side of the primer returns displaced fuel to the tank as it is depressed.
Take lots of notes and a few digital photographs to help with reassembly.

Leaking gasoline from gas tank after being driven the gas tank is not full and it stops when I relieve the pressure by opening gas cap.


there are allot of hioses and connections to these tanks that can be leaking, the leak in almost always on the top of the tank, u are going to have to get under the car and look for gasoline stains from the leak, if the gas stains go up and over the top of the tank then the tank must come out fro repair.

Gas leaks from hose running from tank connected to nothing


i would guess that that is your fuel line and reconnecting it would be a good idea as leaking fuel and motorbike engines dont mix that well and normally result in your bike going up in flames
