I would get the car in to a mechanic right away. Sounds like the converter might be plugged. This has been known to cause car fires.

SOURCE: I'm getting a gas smell inside of my car when it's running.

It could be just a real small pinhole leak that's not detectable. Tough situation, you'd actually have to teat things down to find it.

Evertime I start my 2000 alero oldsmobile I smell gas, any reasons why?


Usually, it's fuel vapor from an emissions hose you are smelling.If there are no visible signs of a fuel leak---damp or wet at the injectors, connections, fuel filter, then I would suggest a smoke check to find the emissions leak

Rough start, smell gas


For the RPM's jumping up and down i would replace the throttle position sensor. If it smells like bad gas or rotten eggs these are signs that the cat. converter is going bad. For the poor gas mileage replace the fuel filter.

What are the symptoms and causes of a cloged catalytic converter


Symptoms are rough running, stalling, poor gas mileage, and especially a strong smell of rotten eggs (sulfuric acid). The main cause is old age, but poor/cheap/contaminated fuel can also be a contributing factor.

I have a 99 Alero and it is missing out bad. It sputters when you drive and it dies when you accelerate. The car has a bad smell also. The gas peddle goes to the floor but the car don't go. Any ideas??


bad smell kind of like rotten eggs? if yes, your catalytic converter is bad, it plugged up and is now restricting exhaust flow causing power loss.

Strong gas smell and poor gas mileage


If the gas odor is coming from the engine, than the problem is most likely a cracked or poorly seated fuel injector.
