Gas retainer ring 2000 plymouth voyager??
I have a 2000 plymouth voyager 3.3 V6 (not flex fuel). I am trying to put the retaining ring back on the gas tank that connects the fuel pump with inserting the rubber seal. I cannot get the retaining ring to hold secure and it looks likes it cross threads every time and when I leave it this way it leaks gas. My question is, is there a trick to putting the retaining ring back on?

Yeah, since it's a plastic fuel tank you don't get too many shots at this so I would suggest buying a new ring from the dealer and CAREFULLY trying to get it installed straight on your next attempt. You may also try partially lowering or removing the tank so you can get a clear view of exactly what's happening. A second pair of hands to hold the pump on center while you work that ring into place may also be a good idea. I know that sounds like a pain but if you blow it you may be looking at a new tank.

Let us know how you make out.
