2003 Ford Courier • 220,000 miles

Recently when I drive I here a sloshing noise that appears to come from the petrol tank it never use to do it and seems to it when at any amount. Is it dangerous & what would cause it

In the tank baffles plates are used to prevent the fuel from sloshing and sometimes these plates can detach causing the problem.

Too much sloshing would create a higher pressure than normal and might cause problem to the EVAP system.

You can't repair a fuel tank. It has to be replaced to solve the problem. Any repair shop should be able to do the job. As to the cost, I am not able to provide any costing as they vary region to region and you have to enquire locally to get the correct pricing.
