The fuel tank on my 2002 Toyota RAV4 is leaking :( I got a look underneath and it's definitely coming from the top of the fuel tank on the right side of the vehicle. I can fill it up to a half a tank without any leak problems. I'm hoping it's just a leak coming from one of the gaskets on the fuel pump. So, my question is, is there an easier process than dropping the fuel tank?

I have a fuel leak around the tank somewhere. It drips. HOWEVER, when I release the pressure from the tank via the fill cap, the leak stops. I can still smell fuel, BUT it does not leak visually. Full tank or 1/4 tank results are the same? Someone told me the tank was leaking, BUT I never heard of an intermittant leaky tank. It does or it doesn't. It has to be a line I think. HELP! Larry

Toyota Tercel 92. Fuel tank problem. I think that the pipe/rod (welded to the fuel tank) that's attached to the Fuel inlet pipe has corroded away to a point that it's now leaking fuel. I guess my only fix would be to change the fuel tank? Can put a used fuel tank on and put my old fuel pump back in? I'd get new hoses and gasket. Any idea where I could get a decent price on a new tank if pick and pull doesn't do?


Actually the easiest and cheapest fix would be to weld a patch to the present tank - wash it thoroughly before that to remove all traces of gas.\012\012\012The next option is what you want to do - a second hand tank and the pump / float unit fr ... Toyota Tercel
