SOURCE: gas odor when at stops sign or parking in garage

I recently had the same problem. It turned out that the fuel regulator on the engine at the left side just above the intake manifold had an intermitent leak. The gas leaking was not always visible so I had the regulator changed and that solved the problem.

SOURCE: service engine soon light is on with a steady light

Your going to have to read the codes. Autozone has the haynes book 15 bucks. It will tell you to jump some terminals with a wire and then turn on the key and read the blinks. I would suggest to just open the hood and take real close look to see if any wires or plugs appear to be disconnected, you may get lucky. In either case once you have the codes youll know exactly whats going on. Good Luck

SOURCE: car idles rough in park also runs rough in overdrive

Sometimes a rough idle like that is a fuel filter. As you've already done the plugs and wires the fuel filter would be my next bet.

Try plug wires, that's about all you haven't replaced. Actually if you have an ohm meter you can test them - anything over 6k ohms per foot - REPLACE them. Also run a good fuel system cleaner through it and stay away from cheap gas.

WONT START AND TRIES TO TURN OVER BUT BACK FIRES


AWESOME a real camaro problem.
backfire.
strong odor of gas because the gas isn't getting burned
caused from backfire. backfiring because the spark isnt sparking when its supposed to.
problems could be bad spark plug wires , bad plugs , bad ignition parts.
your gonna need to check wires for bad spots, check ignition coils and stuff like that. if all that stuff is ok, then your problems have to do with inside the engine. jumped time etc.

My daughter has a 96' hyundai Elantra, It died as she let off to get off the highway, It cranks but won't start. there's a very strong gas odor coming from the intake, checked timing belt, and crankshafts,...


If your getting fuel which it sounds as though you are, check to see if your getting spark to the plugs. Sounds like an ignition system issue. Not sure about specifics on Hyundai but could be distributor cap, rotor, distributor, crank or cam shaft sensors.

Strong gas odor


  1. The fuel lines may have a leak: Replace leaking fuel lines and/or fuel line fittings.
  2. The engine may have mechanical problems: Check vacuum lines and fittings for leaks. Check engine compression. Check for broken fittings and mounts.
  3. The fuel pressure regulator may be operating at too high a pressure: Perform fuel pressure test and repair or replace faulty component(s).
  4. The ignition timing may be set wrong: Check and adjust ignition timing.
  5. The fuel injectors may leak: Clean or replace fuel injectors.

Strong fuel odor coming from left front fender by air filter ,also a lot of pressure build up in tank when you remove cap kmkaren56.@bellsouth.net


If the check engine light is on, take the car to an autoparts store and have them use a scan tool to retrieve any fault codes stored in the computer. Most autopart stores offer this service at no charge. There could be a problem with the evaportative emission control system. There is a charcoal cannister that stores gas vapors and when conditions are right, a purge valve opens and the vapors are used in the combustion process. The cannister can get full of vapors and if the valve/solenoid is bad, it cannot purge itself of the vapors. Also integral to the system is the gas cap. A faulty gas cap can cause problems within this system. I am not saying that the evap system is the cause, but the pressure build up in the tank makes me suspicious. Get the codes read and it will help narrow things down for you. Sure hope this helped and best wishes.

Car wont start, sounds like out of gas but tank is full


A car not starting can be caused by many, many things.........but...................a bad thermostat or a good thermostat will not cause or keep a car from starting in any way. you need to know if it is getting gas to the cylinders........and to check for spark at the cylinders.......pull a spark plug wire at the spark plug, pull the spark plug and see if it looks wet or smells like strong gas odor....then plug wire onto spark plug, (without re-installing spark plug), and hold spark plug onto a grounded metal object on engine (using a rubber insulated object, so you don't get shocked), then have someone turn engine over and look to see if spark plug sparks........if yes, re-install spark plug, etc.......your ignintion is sparking, but if you are getting fuel, it may be a jumped timing chain? You may need mechanical help........don't trust the person that told you about a thermostat........

BUT WOULD NOT SURPRISE ME AT ALL FOR THE WATER PUMP TO BE CULPRIT

Strong gas smell and poor gas mileage


If the gas odor is coming from the engine, than the problem is most likely a cracked or poorly seated fuel injector.
