IF THIS IS THE ONLY THING ANYONE ON THIS BOARD EVERY LISTENS TO PLEASE LET IT BE THIS...
The link to the website on how to fix this gas smell problem has several potentially FATAL flaws.
If you follow these instructions you could DIE!!! http://home.earthlink.net/~frankie66/cars-...fuelsender.html
The steps need to be fixed as follows:
Disconnect your battery. I dont give a shit what an manual says, I dont give a shit what anyone tells you. Are you willing to bet your LIFE, that with a full tank of gas, your entire electrical system is in perfect condition, and there is 0% chance that there could be a spark, that you dropped a screwdriver and it nicked a wire, or that maybe some of you figured they would play some tunes on the radio while you were doing the work...
Secondly, make sure you open EVERY window in the car before you do this and then every door, and if at all possible do this outside on a nice breezy day. Gasoline fumes can settle and build up in the car.
here is the most important part:
NEVER EVER use a Steel screwdriver like this numbnuts suggests to loosen the lockring. If it comes in contact with another ferous metal surface (which is really likely ) it can spark. do you want a spark while you have a gas soked rag sitting in the back seat where there are gas fumes from your cracked plastic part, and a FULL tank of gas?
You absolutely must use a non ferous punch to do this . and prefereably a rubber mallet instead of a steel hammer.
I dont love you all, and some of you i Kinda dont even like, but I don't want anyone to get blown up up!!!!
