Replace gas tank because a hose broken off?
Hi all, new Jeep owner here. Just bought a new to us 2007 Wrangler X. Engine light on with gas cap indicator too. Took into the Jeep dealership today for some recalls that had not been done and asked them to look into the engine light/gas cap notifications.
Said EVAP code because of broken attachment on gas tank. Said I should consider replacing gas tank. $1,200. I've read that this is a common problem; however, since I left the dealership, neither notification has displayed. I've driven probably about 50 miles and not notifications.
Appreciate any advice/suggestions.
Thanks,
Lamo

Welcome to the forum.

Did the dealer actually perform a smoke test to isolate it to the tank? Or were they just trying to make their house payment this month off you? Which hose supposedly? The hose may not be bad, just the fitting on the sending unit snapped off. I new sending unit/fuel pump is less than $250. Get some PB Blaster for any rusty hardware and a new unit. Then it is a DIY project once you run enough fuel out of it..

Have a blessed and prosperous day!
