Question about 2005 Chevrolet Impala

1 Answer

Gas smell coming from under the hood

When I crank my car I smell gas. For a while I did smell it on the outside of the car but now I smell it on the inside more than the outside. I know this is dangerous but wanted you opinion on what could make it do that. The smell is coming from under the hood and not from the rear. The smell is stronger in the front seat than in the back.

    The smell comes and goes. If the car turn a curve the smell can get stronger. It is stronger from the back seat

It could be your head gaskets and thermostat going bad. those have to be fixed or your car will overheat and will cost tons of money to fixed...just went through the same thing

Dodge caravan 2005 has gas smell when stopped


Where is the smell coming from? Under hood? Rear/front of vehicle? It could be a leaky fuel injector... bad gas cap.... leaky fuel line... leaky tank/tank seal... disconnected evap line..... leaky pressure regulator to name a few. Have a pro inspect the fuel system to avoid a dangerous situation

Where is the main fuel relay located


Stand by the gas tank while someone turns the key to ON. Listen for the fuel pump to come on for a second or two as it should. It will only come on for about two seconds to pressurize the fuel system, then shut off and only come on again when the engine is cranked. If you hear it, then the pump is working. Hence, you would smell gas after cranking the car a bit. If no sound from the pump, look for the relay in the power distribution box under the hood. The box's cover should have a diagram for fuel pump location. Or your owner's manual might show it.

I am trying to figure out why my 2002 ford mustang gt wont start i have replace the ignition switch anf the starter and all fuses are good under the hood and dash


Does the engine crank ? If so do you smell gas ? If you smell gas you have a spark problem. If you do not have any fuel coming up then check the fuel filter and fuel pump. Let me know.

Gas Smell when heater turned on


When the heater is turned on, it is drawing in air from the cowl at the bottom of the windshield outside the car. If your smelling gas when you turn it on, it would suggest to me that there may be a fuel leak under the hood. A lot of Honda's have the fuel filter under the hood against the firewall. Open the hood, and see if the gas smell is any stronger, or any gas smell at all for that matter. I would strongly recommend getting the car checked as soon as possible, if you can find the source of the smell yourself.

Car has gas smell when heater is on


my question is do you smell gas when outside the vehicle? chances are it is pulling "fresh air" from outside the vehicle and might be pulling vapors due to thew fact you have a gas leak under the hood. check your engine while running and if a gas leak is seen. turn it off imediately and repair it. do not drive it until then. happy holidays

Smelling gas


those cars have had numerous problems with leaking fuel injectors,the problem is that its hard to find due to the heat of the engine drying the fuel up before it can make a visible drip or stain.Please address this quickly due to the danger of fires.

2005 Chevy Impala exhaust smell


neither one of these would cause gas to leak. sure it is not coolant ? if you think it is gas it is not safe to drive car as it could catch on fire. possible cause would be a leaking injector.
