Question about 2000 Audi S4

2000 Audi s4 has strong smell of gasoline

I just pulled into the garage and noticed a strong gasoline smell.
My husband said he heard a sort of subtle "clanking" sound as I pulled in. I am afraid to start the car until the gas smell goes away. It drives fine, it has about 70,000 miles. I filled it up yesterday.

Pop the hood and check all the fueling lines, then check your gas tank and see if you just spilled some. Then check your exhaust pipes because you are probably running rich. You may need to change your spark plugs, or possibly a mass air flow sensor, or oxygen sensors. you should get either a vagcom to scan it or an OBD-II scanner.

2004 Audi s4. After a trip we noticed that the car had some vibration in the stick shift. The next day the engine was running rough(vibrating) upon start and driving it. I also noticed when you push out...

I was thinking a broken motor mount until you said the clutch stopped working. Tranmission / clutch is my only thought now - sorry.

No matter how far I drive my car , when I get out of drivers side I smell gas , for quite awhile. It can be hot or cool outside, strong odor when I pull it into garage. Thank You

When my 94 SL1 had this problem turned out to be a bad MAP sensor. Could be another problem such as a leak in a line as well. You are throwing gasoline away, not burning it, get some mechanical attention ASAP.

Gas smell inside a car

I purchased a 93 Villager in 1999 and it developed a gasoline smell inside. The problem was the fuel filler hose / pipe that was covered by a manufacturer's recall. It was repaired by the Mercury dealer at no cost to me. You should contact the local Mercury dealer. This year Villager also had a problem with the crankshaft breaking, although they never had a recall for that problem, the crankshaft diameter was increased for the 94 and newer models.

Strong odor of gasoline vapors

do u have a check engine light on? do u overfill the tank? which is to say when the filler nozzle clicks off do u still try to put more fuel in? in any event u most likely have a overloaded carbon canister, pull the canister out and check it for gasoline saturation, the carbon canister is located under the car in a tray near the fuel tank.
