SOURCE: 1998 volvo s70 heater smells strange and smoke fills the cabin

Your heater core is leaking. The smell and smoke is from the coolant evaporation.

SOURCE: gasoline odor

You'll need to inspect every inch of the fuel system for leaks. I would start in the engine compartment. Chech injectors, fuel rail, lines to rail,etc. Check under car for leaks in lines, around tank. Use you nose to give you an idea where to start. Since it fills the passanger compartment I'm betting on the engine compartment in which the fumes could get in through the heater intake which is close.Look for wet spots. It could also be a leak in the evaporative emissions system which includes charcoal canister, purge system and lines but you'd probably have a check engine light with a problem in those systems. The hotter the vehicle and climate will make the leak harder to find due to evaporation.

SOURCE: gasoline smell from time to time

it can be that one of the injector is leaking and the fuel gets burned on the manifolds thus runningt into the vents, secondly the pressure regulator could be leaking causing the fuel to leak and then again they get burned on the manifold due to tremondous heat

SOURCE: excessive smell of gasoline, odor of fuel

Gasoline smells can be very dangerous, Can you smell it more after filling your tank up? If so there is a leak in the filler tube that leads to you gas tank. It needs to be replaced immediately. If not on the injector rail there is a pressure regulator that can leak or there can actually be leak on one of the injectors itself. Please remember if you can smell gasoline there is DEFINITELY a leak in the system. Check all fuel lines on the bottom check gas filter injector rail and gas tank carefully you should find the leak. Good luck

Why would my 1995 toyota corolla be smelling like gas very strongly?


I would be considering if the fuel cap is pressurised, if it is then the charkhole canister breather my be blocked . but if it doent start straight away then u must be loosing pressure in the fuel system,does it make a difference how much fuel is in the tank ?it can be the fuel over flow pipe if you fill the tank right up and park it the fuel can swell, it exspands. I hope this is of some help. if not I would like to know were you park it ,how much fuel is in it , is the swell strong inside the car or under the bonnet , in the garage

I have problems with a gasoline smell coming from outside the gas tank. What could be the problem? The smell comes whenever I park and get close to the rear of the vehicle.


Sounds like one of the rubber lines from fuel tank is leaking. You're going to need to climb under it and visually inspect hoses.
