I would try the battery first. I have a 2004 F150 that really discharges the battery fast if I don't drive it for a week or two. I ended up replacing the battery and then putting a trickle charger / battery maintainer on it.

Good luck.

SOURCE: Gas Smell in Truck Cab

gday mate,geoff here, ok she's an oldy but i bet she's a treat to drive, 1t check the fuel vent, making sure the one at the fuel cap is clear, also check for minute little pin holes where fuel pipe to engine is held to chassis, these are old and my have worn though, the rubbers at this age are due for replacement,ie the fuel tank filler to cap assembly, start there and go through the system, Without missing a hose , and no she looks OK here, check them thoroughly, fuel vapour is cause for explosion, hope this helps start the process,geoff.

Starts but dies if you let of the gas also smells gas

Most likely a bad ignition module in that era, need a 5.5mm thin wall socket to replace it. Can also be Pick-up in Distributor going bad.

My ford 1997 F-150 4.6L has a antifreeze smell in the cab when it is running, think it might be the heatercore?

yes it sounds like it might be the heater core when your heater core goes bad it leaks and seeing that it is in the cab it will have that smell usually when it leaks your floors will be wet from the leak. bypass the heater core unitl you can get it fixed to prevent any electrical problems

Engine will turn over but not start. Do smell gas when turning over.

you have to check for spark at the plug wires,if you have spark try giving it a little gas sometimes when the iac (intake control valve) sticks it will not start,if it starts this way change the valve.
