my check engine light is on due to insufficient air flow, is that sensor, only code Egr system
I came out of the store yesterday and noticed a puddle under my car. I swiped my hand through the puddle and smelled it, it was gas. A steady stream of gas was coming from the front of the gas tank. It did not seem to be leaking from any type of hose, however; could not get far enough under the car to see where it was coming from.

I had a 97 Chevy Lumina before with the same problem and it wound up being a hole in the gas tank about at the half way point.

Someone please help!
I believe that my pcv hose is busted i saw fluid leaking through it changing it will it remove the check engine light?
when i have it on park its actually on reverese, when i have it on neutral its on overdrive, so basically everything moved up.
I need to adjust it to be back how it originally was because my reverse lights stay on when i turn the car off and it kills the battery. so how do i go about adjusting this? or would i have to change the shifting cable itself?
Cars starts normally if UNLOCK is pressed but VATS engages automatically even when just sitting in car with engine off for few minutes. Can this be automatic feature be turned off? How? I still want to have remote lock,unlock and remote open trunk.
First start up of the day is fine. After its been driven, sometimes it wont start unless I pump the gas pedal while turning the key. Car runs fine, but sometimes while stopped at a red light it stumbles like it wants to turn off and sometimes it does. When it occurs too much, I spray the throtle body intake and it seems to do the trick but only for a few days. I've changed fuel & air filters, spark plugs & wires, O2 sensor, cleaned fuel injectors, egr & pvc valve. Fuel pump makes its electrical hizzing sound when key is turned so i take it its working fine. I havent learned how to check for vaccuum leaks. Repair shops dont mention the minor possibilities, they right away suggest the most expensive repair, fuel pump.
The coolant level indicator on the dashboard is always on despite having the radiator and the resovoire filled to the brim
