Question about 2001 Ford Escape
Overwhelming fuel smell inside car after sitting a short period
Chk eng lite on, chk gas cap lite on.
No wet leaks found anywhere
No problems found around gas cap
Could be an exhaust leak, or a bad gas cap. gas caps have a vent that allows air to escape from the tank safely, if you notice a depressurizing sound when you take the gas cap off it should be replaced, it's possible that the air is building up in the tank and leaking out somewhere it shouldn't be, in which case this is very unsafe so please be careful if you must drive it this way.
