Welding a empty gas tank is not a safe fix , what I 'd like to know is what is the procedure for a gas tank repair if the lines or should I say fitting become detached from the tank? Some posts say that they must be re-soldered to the tank. I suppose one would use a soldering Iron to complete this repair. But now I am hearing that the fuel tank is plastic, what is the deal.

Maybe your fuel vapor canister is bad, meaning having fuel in it. Its located in the pass fender just behind the bumper. Good luck
