Why car wont crank, but can smell gas


IT IS LOOKS LIKE A FUEL PRESSURE LEAKING INSIDE THE ENGINE OR DEFECTIVE FUEL INJECTOR LEAKING . TRY DISCONNECTING THE FUEL PUMP RELAY. AND CRANK THE ENGINE IF ALWAYS CRANK WITH OUT OF FUEL (CRANK WITHOUT START) YOU HAVE FUEL LEAK INSIDE THE ENGINE
REMOVE THE INJECTORS RAIL UP EVERYTHING CONNECTED,PUT BACK THE FUEL PUMP RELAY TURN THE SWITCH ON AND FIND WICH ONE IS LEAKING. (GASOLINE IS FLAMMABLE TAKE CARE)

Will not start appears no gas


The most common reason a car will crank but not start and you smell gas is you flooded it. Too much gas to the engine causes too rich a fuel mixture and the fuel won't ignite.Click this link below for more troubleshooting :---http://technoanswers.blogspot.com/2012/01/car-will-not-start-and-smells-like-gas.html

I have 2004 PT Cruiser that the battery went dead. Replaced the battery but the car won't turn over. In fact I can smell gas after trying to start the car. Also noticed a leak underneath the right fro


You shouldn't have any gas smells, maybe a little if the engine were cranking over without starting. But your car is not even cranking, right? Or will it crank and not start? In that case you might smell a little gas, so next step would be to check for spark.

The leak on front passenger side: if that is where the front of the engine is, check carefully your water pump for leaking (then it is bad) and also check all hose connections there for leaks.

Sudden no-start conditions are usually loss of either spark or gas to the cylinders. These are the first things to check when it won't start.

2000 nissan maxima won't fire when trying to start. it turns over but won't fire. it started once and ran but won't start again


sounds like it might be flooded. Try and remove the fuel pump fuse from the fuse block that is just in front of your left knee. While it is out crank the car and see if it wants to start and hold down the gas pedal all the way and then relase it and back and forth and once you get it to run have the fuse ready in your hand and in front of the spot to install it. and then keep the rpm's up with the gas pedal until the smoke clears out behind the car.

My volvo 740 non turbo car has resently failed to start i need some ideas on what to do, When i try to start the car it will crank but will not turn over and start, this is my first car so i have no idea...


the engine is either not getting fuel, or is not getting spark. with the ignition key in the "run" position, listen under the rear of the car (near the fuel tank) for the sound of the fuel pump. or, after cranking on the starter for a while, remove a spark plug and smell it. smells like gas? if so, the problem lies in the electrical area. if not, fuel is not getting to the engine.

I smell gas when i crank up


This sounds like a choke problem or a fuel problem. The gas smell is coming out of your exhaust pipe. It has too much fuel for the engine to burn until it has time to clean the cylinders out a little by spinning it over for a longer period of time then you will get black smoke and a raw gas smell when it does start. Many things can contribute to this condition. The engine computer is controlling the amount of air and fuel that the engine gets. So I would begin there. With a diagnostic test. Also look at the spark control and the air intake system to make shure it is not stopped up

Engine cranks but wont start


lets forget about the items you replaced.This sounds like a differnt problem;1the reason you get the gas smell is because the engine is not fireing and gas is is waiting about in the cyclenders waiting to fire: my main suspect in this case would be battery/alternator;; if your air filter is ok.? try jump starting the car if this successful then its a battery/alternator problem.hope this helps.adrian
