how long has this been going on, normally the evap system would pickup any leak and set a code, by chance are you from trinidad?Triniboy said:I am getting a gas odor around my truck. Their are no engine codes. I don't have gas leaking anyway I check. How do I get rid of this problem? 2005 escalade 4wd 6.0 v8 62,000 miles.
For the trucks that have no its not a life time filter(02 03 and I think 04)Triniboy said:GM said the fuel filter is a life time filter is this true?
I think he was talking about the in line filter(my 03 has one as I had to replace it lately)wesyder said:yes the only fuel filtration is in the tank and it gets changed when the fuel pump goes out
Ah okTriniboy said:I am talking about the fuel filter under the driver side of the truck. I only have the gas odor when the Truck is on.
Change the fuel filter once a year , realistically you don't want it to get clogged and the truck back fires and won't go past 2,000 rpmthe cadillac man said:Ah ok It's got to have a leak somewhere when under pressure then Now the filter does need replacing (forgot the milage though) I was told its best to change it every two years The gas lines run on the driver's side of the truck so if there is a leak it would leave a spot(or puddle depending on how bad the leak is) btw the brake lines do also I wonder if the evap valve is sticking open?(check engine light??)
Been through that once and the bad part was I was on the interstate(not happening again ever)godsdiablo said:Change the fuel filter once a year , realistically you don't want it to get clogged and the truck back fires and won't go past 2,000 rpm
