Q: Gas leaking

asked by on February 08, 2016

There is a gas leak.

A gas leak I never something to put off. The most common gas leak on this vehicle is from the metal line under the vehicle. These tend to corroded and break over time. The leak will need to be located and then the line will need to be replaced. I have also seen the tank leak on some of these, but that is not as common.
