I changed my fuel pump now you can see gas leaking from under the truck by the tank

My car has 187660 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi There, It sounds like you may have a fuel line running to or from the pump that may be leaking. As you know, this can be very dangerous and should be looked at as soon as possible to avoid a potential fire. Depending on the location of the leak, this may be related to the fuel pump installation or it may be unrelated. I would suggest having a professional from YourMechanic come to your location to take a look at your Blazer to determine how to properly repair this.
