It sounds like either your fill line or vent line has a small hole in it. Check the hoses for cracks or pinholes and the steel pipes for rust (again, pinholes)

My digital gas gage reads full all the time I have to go by my miles and sometimes that don't work and I run out of gas..how do I fix my problem


This is a common problem and to correct this problem will require the replacement of the fuel sending unit. The fuel sending unit is inside the fuel tank and has the fuel pump mounted in it. This requires the removal of the gas tank and then the fuel sending unit can be removed from the tank.

REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION Fig. 1: Fuel pump unit 8470h037.gif
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Relieve fuel system pressure.
  3. Remove fuel filler cap to release fuel tank vapors. Leave cap off until repairs are completed. Gasoline fuel vapors are extremely flammable. Ensure that fuel is stored in a container that can be properly sealed. Never store fuel in an open container. Store container in a safe place away from heat.
  4. Remove fuel tank by performing the following:
    1. Step 1: Drain fuel from the tank into an approved container for storage.
    2. Step 2: Raise and safely support the vehicle.
    3. Step 3: Remove rear stabilizer bar at links, pivot bar downward.
    4. Step 4: Remove hoses and pipes from tank unit.
    5. Step 5: Remove hoses at tank from filler and vent pipe.
    6. Step 6: Disconnect tank unit harness from rear body harness.
    7. Step 7: Support fuel tank and disconnect 2 fuel tank retaining straps.
    8. Step 8: Remove tank from vehicle.
  5. Remove sending unit, gasket and pump assembly by turning cam lock ring counterclockwise. Lift assembly from fuel tank and remove fuel pump from fuel tank sending unit.
  6. Pull fuel pump up into attaching hose while pulling outward away from bottom support. Take care to prevent damage to rubber insulator and strainer during removal. After pump assembly is clear of bottom support, pull pump assembly out of rubber connector for removal. To install:
  7. Push fuel pump assembly into attaching hose.
  8. Install fuel tank sending unit and pump assembly into tank assembly. Use new O-ring seal during reassembly.
  9. Install cam lock over assembly and lock by turning clockwise.
  10. Support tank and position in vehicle. Install tank straps and secure with retaining bolts. Tighten to 25 ft. lbs. (33 Nm).
  11. Connect tank unit harness to body harness.
  12. Connect hoses to filler and vent pipes. Tighten clamps.
  13. Connect hoses and pipes to tank unit.
  14. Connect rear stabilizer bar to links. Tighten bolts to 42 ft. lbs. (58 Nm).
  15. Lower vehicle.
  16. Refill tank and install filler cap.
  17. Connect negative battery cable.
  18. Start engine and check for leaks.

How do you replace a fuel pump on 1994 jeep grand cherokee


Disconnect the battery, Jack the rear up on stable jack stands. use a smaller jack with a piece of wood to stable the load under the tank. You will see 2 band straps under the tank, remove the bolts, only 1 side have bolts, the other side swings down. The hose from the gas cap will have to be disconnected, which can be !!!!! when in-stalling. you can then drop the gas tank down easily with the jack just a bit, enough to reach around to unplug the fuel pump plug, and the gas lines. Once it's removed, the pump has a big screw on ring, take it off and the fuel pump can be pulled out.

Replace fuel pump


Removal & Installation
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable and relieve the fuel system pressure.
  2. Siphon or pump as much fuel as possible out through the fuel filler pipe.
Fuel injected vehicles have reservoirs inside the fuel tank to maintain fuel near the fuel pick-up during cornering or low-fuel operation. These reservoirs could block siphon hoses or tubes from reaching the bottom of the fuel tank. Repeated attempts, using different hose orientations, can overcome this obstacle.
  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2. If equipped, remove the skid plate attaching bolts, then lower the plate and remove it.
On Explorer/Mountaineer models, the front fuel tank strap is bolted to the skid plate and will be disconnected when the plate is removed.
  1. Disconnect the fuel fill and vent hoses connecting the filler pipe to the tank.
  2. On vehicles equipped with a metal retainer fastening the filler pipe to the fuel tank, remove the screw holding the retainer to the fuel tank flange.
  3. Disengage the fuel lines and the electrical connections to the fuel tank sending unit/fuel pump assembly. On some vehicles, these are inaccessible on top of the tank. In this case, they must be disconnected when the tank is partially lowered.
  4. Place a safety support (such as a floor jack) under the fuel tank and remove the bolts from the fuel tank straps. Allow the straps to swing out of the way. Be careful not to deform the fuel tank.
On Ranger vehicles, the rear fuel tank strap has two connections which must be unbolted.
  1. Lower the tank a few inches, then detach the fuel lines and electrical connection from the sending unit/fuel pump assembly, if required.
  2. Remove the tank from the vehicle.

To install:
  1. Before installation, it would be wise to perform the following:
    1. Double-check the tightness of the sending unit/fuel pump locking ring. If it is already loose, now would be a good time to remove it and check the condition of the gasket underneath.
    2. Ensure that all metal shields are reinstalled in their original positions and that the fasteners are secure.
    3. Be sure that the fuel vapor valve is completely installed on top of the fuel tank.
    4. Make all necessary fuel line or wiring connections which will be inaccessible after the fuel tank is installed.
  2. Raise the fuel tank into position in the vehicle. If necessary, attach the fuel lines and sending unit electrical connector before the tank is in its final position.
  3. Lubricate the fuel filler pipe with a water-based lubricant. Install the tank onto the filler pipe, then bring the tank into final position. Be careful not to deform the tank.
  4. Position the tank straps around the tank and start the retaining nut or bolt. Align the tank with the straps. If equipped, be sure the fuel tank shields are installed with the straps and are positioned correctly.
  5. Check the hoses and wiring on top of the tank. Make sure they are correctly routed and will not be pinched between the tank and body.
  6. Tighten the fuel tank strap retaining nuts or bolts to 20-5 ft. lbs. (3-41 Nm).
  7. If not already attached, connect the fuel hoses and lines. Make sure the fuel supply, fuel return (if present) and the vapor vent attachments are made properly. If not already attached, connect the sending unit.
  8. If removed, install the fuel tank skid plate.
  9. Lower the vehicle.
  10. Fill the tank with fuel and check all connections for leaks.

Water leak from top of expansion tank.2000 BMW 316i se


The water (coolant) in the expansion tank will rise and fall with the engine temperature. What the expansion tank does is collect and return coolant to and from the engine. When the engine warms up the coolant gets hot, builds up pressure and opens up the radiator cap. The coolant then goes into the expansion tank. Now when the engine cools down the pressure drops in the cooling system and the pressure drop (vacuum) pulls the coolant back into the engine via the radiator cap. The radiator cap allows the cooling system to build up pressure and by doing so increases the boiling point of the coolant, but when that pressure exceeds the caps rating the cap opens and the coolant goes to the expansion valve. The cap has another part to it that when the engine cools down and a partial vacuum is created in the cooling system a "valve" in the radiator cap opens and allows the coolant to be drawn back into the engine. I would look at your radiator cap to see if any gunk or build up is on it, and check the rubber gaskets for cracks. It's easiest just to replace the cap because they are inexpensive and easy to replace (2-10 dollars). The expansion tank should have two hoses on it. The one on the bottom comes from the radiator and the one on the top (possibly part of filler cap) runs down and is open to the ground. That way if it is overfilled or becomes overfilled it will slowly leak onto the ground. When and if you change your radiator cap, make sure the engine is cooled down, remove cap and start engine and turn heater to full blast, full heat. Leave the cap off and let it run until engine warmed up. This should burp out any air pockets that may have happened when coolant was changed. Also top off the coolant in the radiator while it is running. Hope this helps and good luck
