Gas Tank Leak, with pics!

Recommended Posts

I have no junk yards to hunt in Juneau, anybody know a good place to shop for a replacement gas tank?

I have a '90 4x4 SWB with the 4.0 Renix.

I would think my current tank is approx 18 gallons.

eBay has 18's and 23.5's. If I went large on a SWB, would it fit?


Thanks for any help guys.

I just replaced mine this past weekend with one from carquest. I got it the day after i had ordered it. I think it was like $170 Straight-Up. Mine is a swb 4.0l too so pricing should be about the same.

Where's the pictures of the leaking gas tank :dunno:


Just where is the tank leaking????


At the O-ring for the sending unit?? At the supply line/return line on the sending unit cap??


Or, on the steel tank it's self??


I would say rockauto for your location, http://www.raybuck.com is another option.


And no, you can not install a 23.5 LWB tank on a SWB MJ, it will hit the rear axle :eek:


Just make sure you get a replacement tank for FI, one that has the reserve pan inside the tank.

mine leaked on the outside twards the gas fill tube where all fo he road dirt and snow laid up in there. it has surface rust so i tool a pick and poked through the holesa nd cleaned them with a brass non spark wire brush on a drill then jb welded them wildmain siad thats the most common place for them to rot out.
