Customer Question
When truck is started...

When truck is started it pours gas out from under the truck

Mechanic's Assistant: Has the vehicle turned into a gas hog? And how does it start -- same as usual?

Starts just fine, this just started yesterday

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Toyota?

2008 Toyota Tundra

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Tundra yourself? What have you tried so far?

I’m just trying to diagnose the problem and go from there. Got under the truck and the gas seems to be pouring out by exhaust and drips down on the transmission

Hello I will help,

Can you check the fuel lines that run from the tank to the engine? Is that where it is coming from?
