Default Leaking Gas Filler Neck?


The little lady's '97 Brighton [station wagon] seems to have developed a gas leak...As far as I can tell, it appears to be in the filler neck itself, not the tank or any gas lines....Is the filler neck something that can be replaced?..And if so, can it be replaced without replacing/removing the tank?.... Or if not [& I can find the leak in the filler neck], is there any way of patching/sealing the leak?

I would think that you could solder the filler neck (after removing it from the vehicle) or you could maybe get away with some "JB Weld" or maybe some sort of gas resistant two-part epoxy goo... assuming the filler neck itself is the culprit. It is perhaps more likely to be the line to the evarporative emmisions charcol canister ?

First run the car as low on gas as you dare... remove the tank, then the filler neck.

Yes you can replace the filler neck, I had the same problem with my old '97 GT, I think it was about $150 for a shop to replace it. Its a better idea to replace it that cobb-job it
