What causes gas smell in 1999 Nissan maxima?

My first suspicion is that the car had been in an accident and was not properly repaired. Check all the hoses for exhaust gas recirculation and fuel systems. Particularly look for rubber hoses, large or small, that may be pinched, cracked or damaged. You will need the car up on a hoist and a really good flashlight. I might also help to fill the car with gas first, so any leaks would show up more easily. You aslo have some systems that are supposed to direct gas fumes to be burned. Try to check these.
I think you know never to fill the gas tank past the first "click", right?
Be blessed.

I suspect you may not have enough fuel pressure.Fuel injection requires very high pressure to start car and by pumping the gas pedal the car is flooding itself and that let's it start.

My 2005 nissan maxima has a p0171 code which means it runs too lean. while driving, it loses power then it comes back as if car is staving for gas. What should i look for?

P0171 indicates a lean condition. The most common cause of this is a defective mass air flow sensor. Also check if any vacuum leaks.Replace MAf sensor,if cleaning the MAF does not help.

98 Nissan Maxima - Check Engine Light, Knock Sensor

If the car is pinging you will set a knock sensor code.'
This comes from bad gas and running lean., You really need this professionally inspected to rule out the basics. I have seen alot of nissans with the knock sensor code stored but the light is still off.
Fill up the tank with high octane chevron and some techron injector cleaner and clear the light. If it stays off for a couple days then go get it inspected. Even if the code is stored it will still pass as long as the light is still off and the monitors have run.
