Re: 4kq gasoline leak

I had the same problem on my last car ('85 Corolla GTS) and it turned out it
was just a leaky gas cap.  I just bought a new one and the problem went
away.  May or may not solve your problem, but is worth a try for the low

Subject: 4kq gasoline leak

	Some times when I fill the tank in my '86 4kq, gasoline will push
its way 
out the gas cap after a little driving.  For some reason, pressure is 
building up in the tank and pushes the fuel out.  What would cause this? 
 Is there some sort of pressure release valve in the tank which isn't 
working properly?  Is the gas cap not releasing pressure properly?  Any 
advice would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks.
