Smells like gasoline in car when it's in idol

Anytime I have the car warming up in the driveway or even just sitting at a stop light, the entire inside of the car smells like gasoline fumes. Any ideas?

You have a fuel leak. You will need to have a complete fuel system inspection, and leak repaired.

Check entire fuel system for leaks 99% of time wen you smell GAS.... there is a leak. So be very careful. Gasoline leaks can be very dangerous. If you had a tune up lately or changed a fuel filter that can be your problem because they are metal line then can be left loose accidentally. Check all fuel lines from fuel thank towards the engine compartment and you should be able to locate source of the smell. Good Luck and contact if you need more help. Thanks for using FIX YA

Take a look around engine with flashlight and follow fuel lines from throttle body, as far as you can until they go under the car out of sight. A fuel leak is not something to fool a round with if your not experienced in repairs. Your safety & others is at risk, have it checked out a.s.a.p.

2012 ford focus stopped running while idling, wont restart without putting fuel in the carburator then stops again. what could be th cause?


The fact that it runs with fuel introduced through the throttle body indicates that you have air, compression, and spark. The only thing you are missing is fuel. The primary culprit would be the fuel pump. However, the vehicle seems a bit young for this problem. But the other items are obscure as well. All the injectors would have to faulty to blame them. The PCM is also a possibility, but unlikely. There may be one or two relays that affect the fuel delivery system that you can check and possibly replace.

My idol sits around 100-300 RPM


your idle should be around 750 to 850 in park or neutral
i don't know how it even runs at the rpm you listed.
your vehicle should have a tps sensor
"throttle positioning sensor" you might have to have it reset
