Question about 1996 Dodge Intrepid
I have an 96 Dodge Intrepid 3.3L. I have a fuel smell in my car when I turn the heater on. It smells like I have an open gas can in the car. I have to roll down the windows to let the fumes out. It only happens when its been sitting for a while; ie. overnight. My father-in-law said something about a charcoal filter that may need to be changed. Please help, its getting colder and I need the heat in my car but I don't want to get sick from the fumes.
I had this problem. The fuel pressure regulator was leaking gas. $50-$100 for a replacement. It is not safe to drive around if you have a gas leak - could start a fire. Look under the hood to find where the gas is leaking, should be easy to see/smell when the car is running. If you cannot find it, take it in to a shop right away.

I would check to see if you had any fuel leaks, but I'm willin to bet that your father inlaw is rite about the evaporator emmissions cannister ( charcoal filter ).
