The plastic tube that runs from "vmv" valve through the steel line to the fuel tank (which houses the gas emissions) is ruptured. According to an independent mechanic this is a faulty design by the manufacturer (Lincoln-Mercury) that after the tube is replaced, it will continue to happen because it will rub against the oxygen sensor plug which gets very hot.
