    Previa fuel leak

    Hey guys,

    Now I know it's not a 4x4, but it is all wheel drive. lol

    I have a 1991 Toyota Previa LE 4wd. It has an intermitant fuel leak that I can't seem to find. I can drive it around for a few days and nothing happens, then all of a sudden, it will sputter, hesitate and then stall. After a couple of restarts, it will begin leaking fuel from somewhere and then pour out the bottom of this bar. I have a video that I took. Any help or ideas would be greatly appriciated.

    Thanks.

    That's a tough one, and there's very little access.

    Can you see anything with the driver seat flipped back?

    Hey Noltz,

    not really, i can look down and see the fuel coming out from under, but nothing looks wet up top? mind you I don't have your trained eye.

    Hey everybody....

    figured it out!

    it was a bad gas cap... was building too much pressure and blowing the fuel out of the charcoal canister! Geez..... two mechs looked at it and couldn't figure it out Third guy was a charm.
