I have this same problem and another Chevy owner helped me by taking out the sensors on the throtle body and cleaning them.  These are the sensors that control the fuel/air mixture.  After this, the car ran alot smoother and smelled less like gas. Since is not running perfectly I figured I need to replace the sensors or maybe the cable (which are in pretty bad shape). When I do that I'll update this post.

It will not hurt the engine as long as it is clean water, muddy water will clog everything. You must drain the system and flush all water out ASAP.

Sounds like a vacume leak, chk. for a cracked or broken vacume line or maybe one came off. Does it idle ruff? With it running open hood and listen for a low pitch whistle you may have to rev it up a little.

Low coolant and oil smells like gas. No white/blue


let your car idle go back to the tail pipe if it seems to be steaming alot , and or smells like antifreeze then you have a head gasket problem or a gasket leak alowing in directly into your engine

My 1993 chevy luminagets lousy gas mileage,when it runs you smell


. If you are in the car driving and smell fuel, chances are the leak in FRONT of you under the hood, probably being drawn in, by the heater or a/c. Open the hood and look for WETNESS. Don't see or smell it. Get UNDER the car ( safely ). Look around at the fuel lines. You'll find if you look. Hope this helps
