    you would think so start the car up and look under it while its running and see what you can see...it may do it when the pump is activated.

2005 Dodge durango smell gas in and outside of car.But no leaks.when I'm driving it or it is parked.


I'd use a gage and check proper fuel pressure, then with key off, see if the pressure holds for a bit, it should. If it drops like a rock have to check for fuel pressure leak.
Also, your evap system may have a leak? gas tank fumes.

Filling up with fuel may be a coincidence to your problem, or you may have purchased contaminated fuel.

The check engine light will log a "Fault Code" in the vehicles on board computer which may help you diagnose the problem.

A fuel leak, if present, is a serious concern and until you determine if the vehicle is leaking fuel you should not drive it.

If it smells of raw fuel look for a shorted injector dumping fuel into the engine

I have 2004 PT Cruiser that the battery went dead. Replaced the battery but the car won't turn over. In fact I can smell gas after trying to start the car. Also noticed a leak underneath the right fro


You shouldn't have any gas smells, maybe a little if the engine were cranking over without starting. But your car is not even cranking, right? Or will it crank and not start? In that case you might smell a little gas, so next step would be to check for spark.

The leak on front passenger side: if that is where the front of the engine is, check carefully your water pump for leaking (then it is bad) and also check all hose connections there for leaks.

Sudden no-start conditions are usually loss of either spark or gas to the cylinders. These are the first things to check when it won't start.

Smell of gas while driving is very noticable inside of the car.


Sounds like one of the rubber hoses in the engine bay may be leaking. Could also be a leak somewhere around the carbuerator or fuel injectors.

Turn on the car and look/smell your engine bay. Look for anything that may indicate a leak or try and follow your nose. Leave running for awhle, and if you still can not find it, turn car off, and check all lines again.
