Well its been a while now and dad and I have put 50 miles on it and its down 1\4 of a tank. Well drove it today and well leak. So now I stuck my head under the bed its leaking around fuel pump so loosend fuel cap and it releced 2 sec worth of pressure. So I looked into evap system and was wondering if a bad purge valve can cause an over pressure like this?
It should leak period, even if the vehicle was to roll over the fuel shouldn't leave the tank PERIOD. If it's leaking around the top of the tank at the pump I could honestly put my money on a leaky fuel line quick connect, they're made of nylon and this part is known to crack on the dodge's after some time, if not that then could just be old cracked rubber hoses just drop the tank put a new pump in clean the tank new grommets call it a day.
