    I took this to nissan before and they claim they could not smell anything. once again I took this problem to them and they claim it was fixed. I think now the recall is not valid for 1995 Quest? Is this expensive?

    I live in a full size ford e150 van. I often idle the van for heat. I notice the fumes from the exhaust travel to the air intake at the bottom of the windshield sometimes when the wind is blowing just so and I have the vent heat on. Only solution for me is to turn van 180 degrees so wind blows exhaust away from front of van.

Fuel smell inside car when using heater especially on a cold day or when stopping the car


This is a somewhat common problem on Nissan products.
The V6 engine has several small rubber hoses connecting the fuel lines, and when it is cold weather the hoses leak fuel.
The heater - defroster picks up the fumes from the outside vent under the windshield. When you are moving the fumes flow under the van.
If you can find the leak sometimes you can just tighten up a clamp or two.

1997 Villager gas smell when outside temperatures are hot and vehicle has been driven.


A common problem with Nissan products, which this van is a Nissan Quest with Mercury trim.
There are several small rubber fuel hoses around the intake. When the air temp is cold these hoses can leak and then stop leaking when the air temp warms up.
When the air temp is cold, look around the intake with the engine running and you should see one of the hoses wet with fuel.
Just tighten the clamp.

My wifes 2003 toyota highlander when she starts it there is what appears to be a gas fume like smell in the car. it seems to go away when the engine isd warm


You should have the fuel injectors and the especially the "cold start injector" checked for leaks. The cold start injector only operates during cold starts. If you don't notice the problem during warm starts, then the cold start injector is the place to start.

Turns over well but is slow to fire off sometime. Can smell gas fumes inside the car as well as the outside. No black smoke from ehaust and no fuel leaks.


if you smell gas YOU DO have a fuel leak.... make sure your gas cap is good and or tight, also might want to look at your fuel pressure regulator.. the fuel system is pretty simple... let me know!

Starting ruff


I'm leaning toward a bad sensor, as in throttle body temperature, or coolant temperature sensor. The smell of too much fuel is probably from pushing pedal to start, which shouldn't be necessary on a fuel injected vehicle. What does it do if you leave your foot off the gas pedal during start? As far as fuel filter goes, if it hasn't been done in a while, I'd do it anyway just as preventative maintemance if nothing else.

95 nissan quest - strong smell of exhaust in the cabin area


The exhaust leak is almost always broken studs on the exhaust manifolds. It makes a tick noise when cold and usually goes away when the engine warms up. After a year or so, the noise doesn't go away.

Your heater-a/c air intake is at the base of the windshield through the screen on the passenger side. WHen the exhaust leaks from the manifold, the exhaust gas gets sucked into the air intake.
You can put the heater in recirc mode and it will draw air in from inside the car instead of though the outside air intake. You can't leave it in recirc for long in winter or your car will get ice or fogging on the windows from too much humidity. Take it off recirc after 10 minutes.
