I have a 01 jeep cheeroke and last night the oil pressure gauge dropped to zero so i just left the truck and this am the oil is full and smells like gasoline


Gasoline in the oil would be from a faulty injector or fuel pressure regulator.
You would need to change the oil and check the fuel system for leaks before you drive it.

My 2009 xf has just 34000 miles. Last week I start the engine and I could smell gas in the car for about 5 minutes. I waited until the smell was over to drive. From that day, every other day I was sme


Was this the smell of burnt fuel or raw gasoline? If this started after it began getting cold outside this can indicate a problem with the EVAP system in the car. This may or may not cause a check engine light.

This site reported a 2010 model of your car having this same symptom.
They found the injector seals to be leaking.

That can be a very serious issue with the potential to cause a fire. I would have it checked by a professional mechanic and specify your concern on the injector seals being checked.

Where would i locate the fuel filter on a 1999 Ford taurus Se at?


Fuel Injection
General Information (System Description)
Electronic fuel injectors for all gasoline engine applications are basically
the same. They consist of an injector body, an electric solenoid, spring, nozzle
and a filter. The injector is supplied a constant supply of pressurized fuel
from the fuel system. The primary function of the fuel injector is to atomize
gasoline into the surrounding air at the proper time. Throttle body injectors
atomize fuel into the intake manifold in much the same manner as a conventional
carburetor (wet intake); port fuel injectors direct the atomized fuel at the
back side of each cylinders intake valve(s) (dry intake). Gasoline direct
injection systems operate at substantially higher pressure and direct the
atomized fuel directly into the combustion chamber of each cylinder.

The Fuel Filter is located: Under vehicle, passenger side, below seating area, passenger side of fuel tank, mounted on frame in fuel line

2000 Toyota Avalon I smell fuel in the engine compartment that get inside the car and is very strong. What are possible source of problem?


You have a fuel leak-obviously. Do not continue to run or start the vehicle until you find the leak. If you do start your vehicle make sure it is outside and the hood is up while starting. Have a Fire Extinguisher on the ready. A CO extunguisher is more preferred over a Dry Chem extinguisher do to the fact the Dry Chem is not good on electronics. I have both to use the Dry Chem on outside (or underneath) the engine. Gasoline Vapors are very explosive! You need to look for the liquid leak first. Look for wet and/or puddles in or around your fuel injectors. Fuel injector "O"-rings do get worn out (based on your 2000 year) causing a leak. Even if you have to take the air intake system off to be able to gain a visual, it is worth it. Check for wetness around the fuel rails, fuel hose's and fuel hose links. This is only a start in looking. If nothing found I would check the EVAP system for leaking hoses and connections. This system takes the gasoline vapors and runs them thru a cannister and then recycles them back into the intake. Check these hoses and connections. Cracked or worn hoses will cause gasoline vapors Is your vehicle (engine) running okay? If not, is there a problem (ie leak) in your EGR or Intake? Again there are many problems and areas to look. 1st check for a liquid leak. 2nd check for a vapor leak.
If you still cannot find it let me know on fixya.com.

Smell gasoline after turning off the engine. 2006


I had this Problem on my S-10 it was a bad fuel injector, the problem was when i looked for the leak it would evaporate quickly, use a flash light and look at each of your fuel injectors as soon as you turn of the car. If you do it yourself it is an easy fix, mine cost 12 dollars and about an hour to replace.

Gasoline smell from time to time


I have seen a 2004 Grand Am that had a very light leak around one of the fuel injector o-ring seals allowing fuel to seep out onto the lower intake which then vaporize when the engine would get hot making the smell.
