You may have a leaky injector or fuel filter. If it comes stronger when you just start your car, it could be because the injector is leaking overnight and builds up on the engine, which is then promptly burned and brought in through the air vents.

1989 Bronco II smells like gasoline after I drive it. Any idea what is causing that?


If this vehicle has fuel injection which i think it could as cars in europe were fitted with cats from 92 but this is a 89 --but its american and if built to conform with californian regs then it could have a cat and fuel injection .if so check the O2 sensors as one of these faulty will allow the engine to overfuel .in all honesty i would need my head in the engine to know exactly whats wrong

2001 ford escape has horrible rubber smell and bad noise


Remove the drive belt on the alternator and see if you can spin the pulley freely. Check for bearing noise or knocks in the alternator . If it is hard to turn then replace the alternator . While the belt is off check all other units and pulleys to see if they turn freely. Now check the drive belt and smell it If it smells of burnt rubber then replace it as it is what the smell is all about.

Used the wrong gas


Open the gas fill door, remove the gas cap and smell the gas fill tube area. If it has a kerosene like smell then you may have filled it with diesel fuel. If so select your favorite garage to drain the tank and flush the fuel system to remove the diesel.
This vehicle should run on any type of gasoline so I suspect the fluid you put in was not gasoline.

Maybe your fuel mixture is rich, try checking your distributor for proper spark and plugs.

check you exhaust. you may have a damaged cat or a broken baffle in the exhaust eather of these will stall the engine and you will have a strong smell of fuel.

My 1990 ford taurus lost power while siting at a light, also shut off, started back up but vibrated really hard then shuts back off after 10 to 15 seconds, smell gasoline really strong


Sounds like you had a fuel line break. Turn the car on until it stops. Try to follow the smell. Back or underneath or front. Look for pools of fuel. Inspect the top of the engine, fuel lines, rails and injectors.

I've got a 2002 Escape, and all of a sudden when temps dropped below 0 (here in MN) I get a strong exhaust smell inside the vehicle ??? Where shoulod I start looking for the problem ? Should I temporarily...


ok exhaust smells tend to intensify in cold weather. your vehicle is using more fuel the colder it gets. once the engine warms up does the smell go away? if it does, then i wouldn't worry.

91 Maxima Gasoline odor when I first start the car


If it is running fine, the busted bolt isn't the source of the gasoline smell. The intake manifold has vacuum, so the smell wouldn't be getting out, air would be going in, and a vacuum leak would give you poor idling. The exhaust manifold wouldn't have much raw gasoline smell. But it would have loud noise if the broken bolt were causing an exhaust leak.

Check that the vapor recovery line is not broken or disconnected. The hose connectors get cracked. If that were broken, it would cause a gasoline smell after the car has been sitting, especially if it has been sitting in the sun, heat driving gasoline vapor out of the tank. It is supposed to condense in the vapor canister, but some escapes if the line is broken. If it is broken, driving would **** out the gasoline from the line and the wind would dissipate the smell.

Or it could be a leaking injector. With the injector cover off, engine idling and cool, you can visually look for raw gas around the injectors and injector rail connections.

Hope this helps.

Don't know this car but from the age, I'd start looking for damaged fuel or vapor recovery hoses

Strong odor of gasoline vapors


do u have a check engine light on? do u overfill the tank? which is to say when the filler nozzle clicks off do u still try to put more fuel in? in any event u most likely have a overloaded carbon canister, pull the canister out and check it for gasoline saturation, the carbon canister is located under the car in a tray near the fuel tank.
