    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.

I'm smelling gas fumes inside the car when I'm idling but as soon as I accelerate it goes away


Gas smells come from leaks or the engine running too rich ( over fueled ). You need to inspect for any wetness/dampness around the fuel lines/rail and injectors if the smell appears from under the hood. If the engine is over fueled, a scan test can be performed to find out why. Sometimes oil leaks on/around the exhaust system can also give a fuel type smell. Have the vehicle checked for this also.

Gas smell coming from heater vents


if it makes a loud exhaust sound when cold its an exhaust leak. most likely the steel fuel line is leaking. check to make sure your air filter is clean.

Smells like gas only on inside of car. u can smell it more when you crack the windows. car shakes like it needs tune up and when you push on the gas but i already did tune up and gas filter


Fix the smell first, as you are a fire/explosion hazard. Look for wet spots, but something, somewhere is leaking. Inspect the evaporative recovery system and all hoses. When this is resolved, look after the rough running on acceleration.

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.
