Thread: fuel leak
04-04-2009, 04:48 PM #1
I just bought a 98 silverado z71, got it home and had to replace fuel lines, I pulled the tank and replaced everything but the filler hose and the tank.. Tank was in great shape. When i put the tank back in I have a leak when filling. Everything is tight and straight. Do i need a new filler hose or is there a gasket or advesive I am missing? didn't notice anything when I tore it apart.

the leak is where the filler neck hose connects onto the neck (pipe) on the tank. Sorry no pictures pretty tight to get a camera in there. I ordered a new filler neck hose, just wondering if there was something I was missing

Glad to hear you fixed your problem! I had a similar issue on my previous truck. Yes, it was a Ford Ranger, but I had to replace the filler hose and it was over $200!! It had to be a dealer part, specially bent for the application...lame. Hopefully yours was cheaper!Matt

The fulel filler neck hose was $80 it listed for around $100. The local chevy dealer has been cutting me a break on a few things I have purchased there. The rear feed and rear return fuel lines were not cheap either.
Oh well thats what happens when you buy an older used one. Its running now!!!!!!! Thats what matters.

You're lucky - the last time I smelled gasoline whenever I filled the tank, I ended up replacing it. The tank had rusted out. So long as I kept it below half a tank it wouldn't leak...
But I got tired of that silliness and put in a new tank (and new fuel pump and filter).Kirk
