FUEL SMELL AND LEAK, FUEL PUMP FUEL TANK

2004 Chevrolet Malibu • 6 cylinder 2WD Automatic • 130,000 miles

2004 Chevy Malibu Maxx It has a strong smell of gas coming from rear, after searching I found a leak coming from one of the fuel lines coming from the fuel tank. I pushed together and it seated better and stopped leaking. Immediately after that a leak coming from around the fuel pump up on top of the fuel tank began. I dropped the fuel tank down far enough to get my hands on the fuel pump, I can feel fuel and here a tiny hiss. It feels like the leak is coming from a elbow ribbed piece connected to the fuel pump.



My question is what are the chances it is the fuel pump; or is it just another line not connected correctly, or damanged? What should I do to find the problem?

You will have to drop tank and check connectors, wouldn't think it was the pump, there are some plastic and brazed lines that may be leaking.
