Intermediate fuel leak problem!!
Posted 18 March 2005 - 05:12 PM
Sri Petaling. Stop to buy something & smell petrol then take a look at
bottom of car...saw petrol leaking/dripping quite heavily from the
petrol filter area. Immediately drive to SC but when reach there no
more dripping. But insist the mech to lift it up & check it out as well
but cant locate where the dripping come from as the dripping already
Last time also smell it especially when pump full but today is very
The mech also say the hose that connect to the tank from the body
where we pump also crack so I change it (RM68.00)
But the main fuel leak problem havent solve yet...have to wait another
leaking/dripping time to catch the culprit..meantime have to live with
Anyone have this problem before? pls advise..

fuel tank and yur car is under the hot sun (evaporation) The hot air
increases the density of the fuel in the tank and probably some valve was
trickled and out come the air but in yur case, you pump full tank and
that is why the fuel leak.
Good theory hor?
Just dun overfill yur tangki ler...

1. u pumped till the neck of the cap
2. maybe not fully tighten your fuel cap
3.u corner hard
4. then it spilled from ur unfully tighten fuel filler cap
5. becareful after filling full tank...let ur car runs few kilometres so
the petrol went down before lighting ur next cigarette and/or throwing
away the ciggy buts...
