    Until any diagnosis can begin u must have the computer control system tested for trouble codes, was there a check engine light on during the time u smelled gas?

Well korodiver it sound like the carborator was linking and then it leaked so much that no gas was getting to the carborater. The only thing that will fix your problem is just get a clean peice of cloth and push the acclerator and it will open the valves then just wipe out the carborator and it should fix it.

Check engine is on and there is a gas smell

First off, you check for codes within a day or two
of any check light being on your dash

Then you have the system that the codes point
to ,diagnosed & component tested

You certainly never continue to drive any vehicle
for 2 or 3 days, let alone 2 or 3 weeks ,unless you
intend to ruin it & have a possible big repair bill.

Those lights are not the old idiot lights of the 1970's
They are actual fault codes & a vehicle in need of repair

The Gas Smell may be an EVAP System issue
The gas smell should be enough to stop using it
immediately & have resolved

My 2000truch210 smell like gas when i drive it hard to start could u help me with thi one

Check the rubber hoses at the tank. If they're cracked replace them. A cracked rubber hose will allow the gas pump to **** air and make it hard to start and will cause you to smell gas.

May be nothing more than a faulty gas cap or vent hose from the tank to the filler neck. Your charcoal canister for the fuel evaporation system may not be purging. It could be filling up with gas. It will eventually overflow, allowing you to see the problem.

Gas smell

There has to be a leak in the fuel system. Has it been checked while running? There will be at least 2 lines. One will be pressure and the other is a return.
