SOURCE: smelling gas fumes in car after fuel pump was replaced

it is likely that the access plate that the pump is under is not sealed, most likely the O ring seal got installed wrong or cut and gas is leaking by it, not enough to drip on the ground but enough to smell.

SOURCE: Grand am smells like gas inside the car

I would definatly recheck the regulator to make certain you do not have any leaks.
But to be clear, you are smelling gas and not exhaust?
Also, is you cowl seal in good shape, not missing or damaged in any way?
Let me know.
Regards,

2003 chrysler town and country Lxi 6cy. Was having trouble starting but when it did I smelled gas real bad. Then finally didn't start. Put new coil pack on but not it. Fuel pump or fuel filter?


Why would you put a coil on if you smelled gas.....I would look to see where it was coming from.I'd check both pump an filter.and .put some card board under it then turn the key to the on position ...several times see if the gas is leaking and where.or if you don't hear a slight humming noise coming from the rear the the pump is bad.

Gas smell inside outside the car. poor gas mileage


Check the fuel hose and clamps from the filler to the tank .check hose for cracks . The smell will probably be strongest in the boot.

I have a fuel smell in cab on start ups only.No fuel leaks visible and no computer codes.Gas cap is tight.brand new spark plugs


If there is fuel smell in the morning there is a possibility that there is a minute leak in the gaskets or the fuel line pipes or in the gas tank that makes the volatile fuel gas into the chamber.
It will be good to look from the tank to the fuel pump, the fuel filter and to the distribution for any gas leak which might need a tightening or a change of gasket.
Your smelling senses is the right tool to probe.

My car is smelling like gas.


From where? you haven't given enough info, but put a large piece of flattened cardboard under the car to see if any is leaking. You will then be able to see what general area it's coming from--if there is a leak.

It could be a fuel injector(s) or even something very simple. When is the last time you had a tune-up, including a new fuel filter? If it's been more than two years, it's overdue. That means new oil, oil filter, air filter, fuel filter, and spark plugs.If your car has a distributor, you should also replace the distributor cap and rotor (cap).

Try to locate a specific area where the smell is coming from. Breathing gas fumes is not healthy!

Strong gas smell outside


There was a recall recently on the Subaru Bajas for the fuel pump outlet. You could smell gas from inside and outside the car. I had mine replaced in April.

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.

My car smells like gas inside too


not the catalytic converter. you have a fuel line leaking somewhere. check lines on top of motor at fuel rails.and line leading from tank to filter-filter to motor.
