I would look around the fuel injector themself be sure to use a flashlight for safety and go to an auto parts store and replace the o-ring or rings on the ones that is needed.

Gas/oil smell coming in through heater

there is a opening somewhere under your hood in the area of the blower motor casing that is causing the smell. it is highly unlikely but possible that you have an oil leak but i dont think you have a gas leak. get it checked anyway to be safe. good luck

Gas problem

has they're been a significant temp change? when it gets cold out cars use more gas. other than that i would check the fuel pressure regulator on the fuel rail. pull the vacuum line off of it and smell for gas smell if it smells like gas its bad.

How many miles per gallon does my 1996 grand jeep cherokee get? And , i have a really wierd smell coming from the air vents for the past 2 years. they said maybe something died in the airvent? but...

I get about 15 MPG in my 97 but I have a V-8. A V-6 should get a bit better than that. The smell in your airvent could also be mold. It is nearly impossible to get smells out of the vents but you could always take it apart and clean it with bleach.

White smoke strong smell of gas

It's most likely the fuel pressure regulator. Does it start hard when the engine is warm, after you let it sit about 10-15 minutes? Poor gas mileage? It's about a $70 part and should be fairly easy to change.

I overfilled my Jeep Grand Cherokee on my first fill up and now I smell gas every time I fill up. I now stop at the click. I am told it is probably my charcoal filter because I keep smelling gas and the...

The charcoal filter is used to filter fumes from the fuel tank. There is a vent line, that comes from your fuel tank to this filter. (Charcoal canister)

Now since the charcoal filter has been completely soaked with gasoline, it will no longer function as it should. Even with vapors from the fuel tank vent line, the canister only has a working 'life' of so far.
You will smell gasoline in strong amounts until it is replaced.

Can't comment whether it is safe or not. (In my thinking, you are driving around with a charcoal canister, that has a charcoal filter soaked with gasoline. I wouldn't use it this way, but that is just my thoughts)

Problems with it staying on when the RPM is low and it has a smell of raw gas

Sounds like it is flooding and maybe the computer is not telling the fuel injector when it has warmed up. Any trouble codes or service engine light coming on?

2002 GJCL, ABS light came on today and stays on. Alsp smell gas.

If the ABS lights stays on it means the computer has detected a problem in the anti lock brake system and has shut it off until it is repaired. You still have your regular brakes, just not the ABS parts. Could the smell be exhaust gas?
