Does it only bogg down on acceleration or all the time? If its only on acceleration you want to check for any loose vaccuum lines leading to the intake. In addition you want to check the fuel pressure at the fuel rail and make sure that the engine is getting fuel. If so check the injectors. A clogged fuel injector or one that is leaking can cause the bogging issue and the smell of raw gas.

SOURCE: my check engine light DOES NOT come on when i turn

The light is located next to the gate adjar light in the upper left area of the cluster. It at the 2500 rpm mark on the tachometer.
I would take the vehicle to your local Auto Zone and ask them to scan your car for trouble codes. The will scan the car for you at no charge. Write the codes down and respond back.
Regards,

EGR is maybe stuck open. disconnect the vac hose at the EGR valve and see if the idle smoothes out. If the EGR is sitcking open, thats a vac leak. If that fixes it, replace the EGR solenoid valve.

After hot engine wont start and smells like gas


Most likely causes are bad engine coolant temp sensor OR leaking fuel injectors. Bad engine coolant temp sensor will give computer false reading and computer provides wrong air fuel mixture. Leaking fuel injectors will load the engine with raw gas--just like flooding it. Try pushing the gas pedal to the floor and holding it there when cranking when hot. That forces the computer into "clear flood" mode and it shuts off the injectors. If it starts up with pedal down, that would be a sign of leaking injectors.

Obd light on, idle rough, smell, no throttle


The obd light with tell specifically what it is, is it gas or rotten egg - the latter means catalytic converter, gas smell probably flooded or not firing on one or more cylinders, need more details. Also, if the light is flashing it's warning of catalytic damage - raw fuel hitting the cat, smell could be heat from cat trying to burn off raw fuel,it will glow red hot.

When i turn on the van when i step on gas it boggs down and service engine light turns on and it smells like raw gas


You probably need to replace the oxygen sensor. If it is bad the computer doesn't know the correct air fuel ratio.

I have a 2006 SCION XA. I have been filling the tank on this ****** twice a week and there is no engine light coming on. I took it to the ealership and they say there is nothing wrong with it. My car is...


You should get 350 per full tank,and the smell of raw gas,you have a leak,Dont rely on the check engine light if you nose can detect it then your right,You will need to cycle the key but dont start the engine some how the fuel pump has to be turned on with the engine cold and you will be able to see the fuel leak,with the engine warm up a fuel leak will just evaporate too quicly for it to be noticed, the dealer obviously doesnt want to fiqure it out.

1999 Quest mini van starts up and runs good, but once it has reached normal temperature it misfires, raw gas can be smelled as well. There are no faults shown, and once it has cooled down, it runs good...


Ps.. I have the same problems that is turning worse - my MPG is now 15 - ouch...

Check your Catalytic converter - there are 2. Becareful because I was pushing my engine so hard that the Catalic converter was glowing orange. After I got this fixed, I was able to maintian highway speeds but I know that this is only the beginning. My next fix will be the cleaning the MAP sensor as described in this website.

Good luck, Darren in NC

Acts like its running out of gas, raw gas smell


this suggests you have a fuel leak in the engine compartment. Possibly a leaking fuel manifold (injection rail), or the rubber line from the fuel tank is leaking where it attaches to the manifold. The fuel line to the cold start injector should also be checked. Rubber hoses on older cars become brittle and as they contract from very cold weather will leak. Turn the key to on for 1 minute but do not start the car. Then check under the hood for a raw fuel wet spot where the leak is.

I have a 2002 grand am and less than a year ago had to replace cadalitic converter. The check engine light would come on once in awhile, and the car will start to bogg down. It started out as intermitent then eventually all the time. The smell may be the heating up of the converter.
