96 4.6L Fuel Leak Near Fuel Tank
Hi Everyone -
Recently bought a '96 4.6L with ~85k miles on the cheap. The car has several issues, the worst being a fuel leak that is coming from somewhere above the fuel tank. I can see fuel running down the side of the tank - it gets worse when I turn the ignition on. The leak isn't ridiculous, but it's significant - about 1 drip / 1-2 seconds.
I believe this problem is is leading to Check Engine Code P0171 and P0174 - "System running rich/lean".
A few questions:
1) Does anyone have any idea where the leak may be coming from?
2) I only have access to a standard floor jack and non-pneumatic tools. How bad would it be to drop the fuel tank?
3) The interior of this car is a bit rough. Would it be possible to pull the rear seats and go through the floor?
