I`m sure you have check this but i`ll go over it just in case.make sure the fuel line connection at the carb is not leaking and check the fuel line itself for leaking.if the gas is coming out of the carb then you probably will have to have the carb rebuilt with a new float and needle and seat.this is cheaper than buying a rebuilt because you don`t know how long the rebuilt has been sitting on a shelf as things dry out.

I have a 86 nissan pickup 720 i just got it it has a weber carburetor but headers are turning red due to not enough gas does anyone know the adjustments for the carburetor would be helpful thank you..

Is it a fuel problem or exhaust restriction? Sounds like the converter is clogging up and overheating the manifold and can also cause lack of power.

Rough idle and smells like gas when driven

When checking for Vacuum leaks, did you use a water spray bottle on seams and vacuum lines and EGR pod?(engine running)

Check for air leaks in exhaust before O2 sensors. O2 thinks its running lean from air leak in exhaust header and enrichens fuel charge.

Fuel injectors dirty, not closing tight. Switch injectors to other bank and see if Error Code moves to relocated injectors.

Bad spark plugs, check if you have fuel runners in your intake.

I have gas fumes when i accerlarate or turn on air condition

sounds like a gas leak under the hood, most likely a cracked rubber fuel line... easy fix but you may have to look hard to find out where it is leaking.. This is a dangerous situation to be driving this vehicle as gas is leaking and can be ignited by a hot exhaust or header if it drops down on it.. Other than that it is a simple fix for just the cost of the gas line..

Carburetor is leaking gas from the bottom

Hi and welcome to FixYa!
It can be a worn out carburetor gasket or the carb itself has crack. I strongly suggest that you take it off to check the carburetor body. If there's no visible crack then it's just a gasket issue.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Gas smell under the hood at times

Any leaks from where the fuel line comes in? Could be a leaking exhaust header causind the smell. Check your hoses and lines and make sure none of them are broken or rotted. is the engine loud when it's at idle and parked?

  • A small leak/hole in a fuel vapor hose/tube
  • Other small leak in EVAP system

  • Thats what your looking for....

    air con gas will evaprate form the system over about 3-4 years anyway, nost good garages will recharge it for a minimal fee and some will even refund you if they find a leak while filling. if it happend suddenly then you have a leak and again this can be fixed by most good garages. hope this helps

    Not necessarily.Your spark plugs are located in the top of the motor so the exhaust heat from the leak could not effect them..So no the leak will not cause miss.Something you can check is by looking in the plug wire holes down at the spark plugs and see if theres any moisture in the holes an oil leak in the holes.This is usually the number one thing that makes these cars miss other than just needs a tune up.It is the 5.4L or 4.6L right.If not an it is a 302 or 5.0L it is very possible that the header gasket is the problem.And remember if you fix the gasket you'll need to replace the plug wire that the leaky header gasket was blowing on....
