Fuel tank and fuel lines inspecting

— Inspect the fuel tank, fuel lines, and fuel system for damage or leaks.

• Check for fuel leaks in the engine compartment or fuel odors in the passenger compartment.

• Check for a damaged fuel tank.

• Check for any evaporative emissions hoses that may have become disconnected, checking carefully at the charcoal canister and evaporative emissions purge valve (where applicable).

• See 240 Fuel Injection and 201 Fuel Supply for component locations and additional information.


When checking for fuel leaks, the engine must be cold. A hot exhaust manifold or exhaust system could cause the fuel to ignite or explode causing serious personal injury. Ventilate the work area and clean up spilled fuel immediately.
