Question about 2003 Cadillac CTS
I have a 2003 cadillac cts, and when you drive you can smell gas. The smell is worse when the car is in park and running or at idle at stop lights. I cannot see any wets spots or drips but it is now so bad inside that my clothes smell of gas after driving the car.
When you look for a fuel leak, make sure the engine is running. the fuel lines will be pressurized and you are more likely to spot the leak. if you see fuel squirting, be careful since it under a lot of pressure. it might look like a single strand of a spider web. also, you should wear eye protection since gas in the eye would be a bad thing. needless to say, don't light a match or lighter for light to find the fuel leak. since gas is explosive, you probably should take it to a shop if you can't fix it. it could be dangerous if gas drips on a hot part. fuel vapors are explosive too.
