two main culprits are- Black box thing underneath the car or, the gasket off the old gas pump assembly was just ****.

Anyone have any other ideas?
the top oval shaped gasket for the tank?

I've done mine like 4 times now

You need a torque wrench, sir.

I believe those are built into the tank right? No replacing them?

Wow dude. That sucks. Maybe don't go Hulk next time...

On a side note, did you fix the gasket? Did your CEL go away?

All that masturbation is making me strong.
Didn't drive it afterwards to see if the light came on. I wasn't too happy with myself. lol

I'm not worrying much about it now. People have had half of the bolts on there and no leaks

They snap if you treat the M4 stud like an M10 bolt on your brakes. The biggest mistake the majority of people use working on their cars is too much torque.

True, the torque wrench was only set to 100ft lbs, that's enough right?

and 150ft lbs on the wheel studs right

I like to max my torque wrench out and then put a 4' jack handle on it and then stand on the end of the jack handle. Job done.

But seriously, I know plenty of guys who stand on their tire lug wrenches. Sometime over torquing is as dangerous as under torquing.

I stand on mine to get them off after discount tire torques them too tight lol. I surprise myself when I think how many things I didn't use a torque wrench on when I was young and somehow it turned out ok. I did use a little common sense though when tightening and also had a good feel for tightening everything. I would torque by feel. I live by the torque wrench now. Even if you don't have the torque specs, you can find general specs to go by based on what bolt you are tightening. I believe a machinist's handbook has charts with torque specs by bolt size / strength.

yeah I just torque till it starts to strip the threads, especially with anything bolted into the engine block

Anyone heading out to the meet tomorrow night?

Also, I moved to Scottsdale and while I don't mind driving to the Superstore, does anyone in Scottsdale/Tempe area meet anywhere closer? Since the eastside meet is basically dead... :/
