Check the charcoal cannister has not popped a hose. It is a container bolted to the engine firewall.


If it is the 3 cylinder engine, you may have a torn accelerator pump boot on top of the carburettor.

You may have a leaky fuel injector. Run the car and then shut it off. Then with a good flashlight look at each injector and see if you see any fuel seepage or possibly a very small stream of fuel squirting from the injector.

Smells of petrol


Have a mechanic locate the leak, this is dangerous. A pot of water will absorb gas vapors, to keep it from spilling put a towel in it.

My 2009 xf has just 34000 miles. Last week I start the engine and I could smell gas in the car for about 5 minutes. I waited until the smell was over to drive. From that day, every other day I was sme


Was this the smell of burnt fuel or raw gasoline? If this started after it began getting cold outside this can indicate a problem with the EVAP system in the car. This may or may not cause a check engine light.

This site reported a 2010 model of your car having this same symptom.
They found the injector seals to be leaking.

Mar 2010 4340 0 injector seal leak causing "gas" smell in cabin - replaced injector and new seal kits on other injectors

That can be a very serious issue with the potential to cause a fire. I would have it checked by a professional mechanic and specify your concern on the injector seals being checked.

Why is it that there is a strong smell of gasoline when the engine runs


  • First thing I would do is get a flashlight and look around the injectors real well for wet spots.
  • Look at the fuel lines under the hood for a leak.
  • Look at the fuel tank and the fill spout for the fuel tank.
  • Check the fuel lines from the pump all the way to the fuel injectors as well.

  • A good majority of the time, if you smell heavy gas when in the car, especially when driving, you have a cracked injector or a seal on an injector has failed. You want to look real good at the base of the injector because it may not be a big leak and gas evaporates fast so the leak may not be real big. You can also pull the fuel rail and inspect each injector.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

I can smell fuel really strong and the car would stop and not start back up for about an hour. I had the fuel pressure regulator replaced and had the fuel pump and fuel filter replaced. The car still...


Replacing one injector is not good as the full set must be changed for best performance. the fault seems more likely with an overflow of fuel due to poor settings or fault in the fuel delivery.
It seems the fuel pump is the suspected part, you need to have a good calibration with a check for fuel leak or faulty gaskets. When the AC is ON , the power required is more and so the throttle opens up with more fuel. The firing intensity and the INGITION SYSTEM, the spark plugs must be checked. A look as the spark plug will indicate the firing and fuel condition. Also the exhaust analysis will give a good report of the un-burnt fuel which means a correction in fuel settings.

I can smell gas in the cab of the windstar van but dont see any leeks but it built up presure when i opened the gas cap


The fuel smell is likely a leak in teh evaporative emissions collection system, or the fuel fill pipe or vent tube leaking. When you open the gas cap, it should relieve pressure, this is normal. Look under the rear for signs of wet spots of fuel leaking or broken or disconnected hoses that carry fuel vapors from the gas tank to the canister for storage, report back.

I have a fuel smell while driving my 2005 dodge caravan, just fumes no sign of a gas leak!!!


Under the hood look very closely at the fuel rail and injectors for any signs of seepage. Under the car look very closely at the seal where the fuel pump is mounted to the fuel tank.

My 1993 chevy luminagets lousy gas mileage,when it runs you smell


. If you are in the car driving and smell fuel, chances are the leak in FRONT of you under the hood, probably being drawn in, by the heater or a/c. Open the hood and look for WETNESS. Don't see or smell it. Get UNDER the car ( safely ). Look around at the fuel lines. You'll find if you look. Hope this helps
