i must be cursed. fuel tank leaking after allowing fuel to go to carbs and go through return pipe into tank, the leak is central and right onto the main anti roll bar on back. is this bar directly under the fuel filter? it only leaks when pump is running. tank is 3/4 full. soon as it stops priming , leak stops. must be fuel filter? rubber seals corroded after been sat in winters? car can't move as its a new build, , cams, rings need to be run in.
Hi, I am in the middle of trying to carry out a few repairs to my 94 mk2f coupe. My old fuel tank needed to be replaced due to rust and corrosion and I have encountered a few problems while fitting the new tank. I saw a diagram on here before the same as the one attached but it had a list of what each number means, can somebody please link me to this/post this below? Thanks for your help, Vinny
Well, I posted a while ago that I was having problems with the fuel gauge on my mark 2 bready...... one day it started reading full pretty much all the time and it would drop with fuel usage eventually to half..... Then annoyingly run out of fuel lol. Well I finally got round to trying to sort it and having taken the sender from the tank, I tested it at various levels and it works fine! Accurate to a tee infact..... Gauge on the dash works as well so I was a little puzzled. I figured that maybe something had dropped into the tank and was stopping the sender dropping all the way but as best as I can tell there was nothing in there that shouldnt be...... So I lifted the car and had a nosey at the fuel tank which it appears has a big problem, it looks as though it has been sucked in! It appears its pressurised and literally sucked itself in meaning I now have a much smaller tank than I should. Around the time this problem started there was what can only be described as a whooopm noise occasionally from the rear of the car, Im fairly convinced this was the tank pressurising and sucking in on itself. I checked exhaust, rear suspension at the time and could find nothing so this would explain...... anyway how do I fix it, how do I stop it happening and why has it happened!!
