Hi golffymm2,
This problem can be from many things. I will give a few suggestions, inspect the bottom of the tank itself for any small punctures and where the fuel line exits the tank for proper sealing. Check all fuel lines for proper sealing and cracks where they connect and check for punctures or if the lines are brittle or discolored to a yellowish color, if so they should be replaced. Check the carburetor for loose screws on the carb itself or loose bolts attaching the carb to the intake manifold. Also the gaskets might have some leaks. You might have to overhaul the carburetor itself.
How do you store your grass trimmer, is it flat on the floor, stood up against a wall or hung up upside down like many people do? This would be easier to pinpoint where your leak is. Have the fuel lines been replaced? If so, it might not be the proper size, and where they enter the gas tank might leak fuel out slowly. From what you say by leaving the tank cap facing up, you store it horizontally. I think you might have a small puncture on the bottom of the tank or maybe from around where the fuel line enters the tank. Another thing that might be helpful is how much and how fast you lose fuel? Those are a few suggestions that might help. If you wish to ask more questions I will by happy to answer them. I hope this is helpful in some small way. Regards and good luck. Denis.

I have husqvarna yth1542xp runs about 5 minutes then shuts off. iblew thru gas line towards tank seemed like something was in line or tank. started and it ran another 5 minytes or so and same thing...


Try it with the fuel cap loose ( not off just loose). This will see if the tank is venting properly. You may also have a bad fuel filter, fuel lines or trash in the tank.

Blocked overflow on fuel tank


I don't know what vehicle/equipment you're referencing here. With that in mind, can you drill a hole or holes through the chassis just below the gas cap to allow water to escape?

FUEL CAP LOOSE LIGHT


The fuel system is is a closed-loop system for emissions purposes. There will normally be a slight amount of pressure in the system when in use. If the ECM does not detect that pressure, the most likely suspect is the fuel cap. Check the rubber o-ring seal on the gas cap. If there are many cracks, or a section that has broken out of it, this can cause the error. An OEM approved replacement cap will fix this. Otherwise, you will need to inspect the fuels system lines, as well as the vent lines from the tank for cracks or leaks.

Obd code p0457 fuel cap replaced mil reset defect not cleared connection checked ok


The code is for a large leak in the EVAP system such as a loose or missing gas cap. But it could also mean a loose or missing hose to the canister or other leak in the tank.
The computer vents the tank several times an hour while the engine is running, and it checks the system by pressurizing the gas tank. If the tank will not hold pressure the code is set.
You may have to check the top of the tank where the fuel pump gasket is, as well as the vent lines to the front of the car.
A mechanic would perform a smoke test to look for leaks.

Where does the duck valve go in a Poulan 2150 chainsaw? Iam trying to replace the fuel lines . Does it go in the fuel tank? I need a diagram of the fuel lines.


is your fuel cap missing the hold down that keeps it from falling out of the tank.if the keeper is missing from fuel cap, the valve goes in the cap.if the cap is together then it just sticks in the fuel tank hole in the top...... hope this helps,let me know.................
