Hi, my name is ***** ***** smells at the rear can be either a bad gasket on the fuel pump assembly, or a bad charcoal emissions canister, which is located right next to the gas tank, have you inspected the canister yet?
then it can only be a bad gasket at the fuel pump module,was the smell there before replacing the canister?
did it start smelling as soon as you replaced it?
it can but usually with a bad line, you would see fuel dripping, since it is high pressure, have you dropped the tank and inspected for any fuel at the lines?
give me a second to pull up some diagrams,Tim
below is a diagram of the top of the tank, the fuel lines attach to the top of the fuel pump module, as seen in the picture, make sure its dry around the line connectors, if it is, then remove the locking ring and insoect the fuel pump assy gasket,Tim
it a 2 hour job by the book, the gasket is called the gasket for the fuel pump assembly, its a round rubber gasket,Tim
sure, once the tank is out, just rotate the locking ring counterclockwise, and the assy comes straight out,Tim
