    04 monte carlo, started to smell in the summer humid rainy days mostly. Then the idleing with the heat on Its like you are standing over a can of gas. It doesnt smell like burnt carbon monoxide exhaust fumes. Its gasoline to the tune of a sore throat and red eyes when I drive I have been driving with the windoiws open I guess it has progressed, (-15 F*) today Now my radiator is drinking fluid and leaking slowly and then no heat till I fill it up w Dex cool. Do heater cores smell strongly like fuel if they **** out??? I cant even drive it anymore and I dont want to get reamed on fixing it! by someonbe who rips me off cuz they know they got me carless...

Check your coolant level and I recommend to do a presurre test. To see if you have any leaks on any of the hoses and change the radiator cap!!!

My car wont start


It doesn't matter if the exhaust is leaking if the car won't start. The smell... does it smell like gasoline? If you have a new alternator and battery, then I would focus on the fuel system. Fuel pump, fuel injector, leaking fuel line, bad spark plugs, bad distributor cap, bad spark wires, oxygen sensor, etc.

My engine wont crank like as if the engine is flooded...how do i clean a flooded engine? it smells like gasoline on my spark plugs when i took them out...please help me...im out of ideas....ive checked...


If the engine truely is flooded, you need to let the vehical sit. The more you try to start the car, the more gas you are pumping into the engines. If you let the vehical sit, some gas will drain out. Hope this helps! Please rate 4 thumbs up!

Gasoline smell in air vents


A gasoline smell is from a leaking hose and you need to find that fast
You could have damaged a gas line during your repair work.
Get your money back on the damper repair. There are no gas dampers on autos.

Missing, loss of power, etc.


sounds from afar like a problem i had after installing after market spark plug cables on a diff. car. make sure you have factory-quality/ even mits. brand cables. (right parts vs. after mkt.?- no contest.)
