i bet the dealer changed the fuel filter and didnt get the flange tight. their is an arrow at the base plate of the fuel pump. notice where it points when dissasembling it and align the arrow the same way when reassembling. a strap wrench is a good tool to tighten the flange with. i've done the job twice, no problems either time. oh, btw. change the fuel filter while u are in there. i just slip the old one off and the new one on, letting the odeker clamps remain. the vent tubes will also have odekers on them, i cut them off with a dremel cutting wheel and just reslip the vents on without clamps. no gas pressure on either vent tube. btw, a check to see if u have the vent tubes connected right? one goes to vapor cannister, other to pavement. pour some gas into filler neck on cell, if gas exits in tube that goes to pavement, it is correct. if not, reverse vent tubes. good luck.
