leaking gas from top of tank

2 Answers


first check for an access panel under the back seat , if not I guess you have to drop the tank ., I would replace any purge valves , solenoids or any other EVAP stuff that can be reached when the tank is out .

Seems to be an issue with lots of Ford taurus gas tanks. Should have been recalled and why people keep smelling gas in back seat.
