I just recently got a '00 426F and when I turn the gas on it leaks gas through the overflow lines. Any suggestions on what would cause this?

Clean the carb and make sure the floats are working properly and that the float height is set properly.

Agree with sirthumpy

The floats could be stuck open. Clean the Bageepers out of it

If that doesn't work, you probably have a worn out valve. Its like 20 bucks for a piece of metal with rubber on the end. Sheeeesh!!
