We have a raw fuel smell comming inside our 2004 altima.
This car has been to 2 nissan dealers. Nothing found. It is not a constant smell. Will smell at startup,driving down the road, or turning some corners. It is raw fuel not exhaust. I have worked on cars and equipment for 35 years, and know there is something wrong, even though the dealers say they cannot find anything ?? It has 56M miles and has only done this the last 9 mo. My best guess is that it is comming in from the fresh air vent. Need answers Thanks.

James, there are many things that can cause a misfire from severe vacuum leaks too mechanical problems. The first step is to do a "Compression Test" to see if your miss is related to valve or ring issues. If you do have low compression then your need to do a "Cylinder Leak Down Test" To determine where the lose is coming from. If there are NO problems found with compression then your next step would be to check "FUEL PRESSURE" because the lack of proper fuel pressure can also cause misfires. If fuel pressure is not the issue then your next step would be to check to make sure your injectors are getting the correct power and ground by using a noid light to test each one. If you find that there are NO issues with the injector circuit, then your next step would be to remove the injector rail, turn the key on while watching the injector spray patterns to see if its spraying evenly and there are no drips after the injector turns off. Because large amounts of fuel dripping from the injector will also cause misfires. This should be enough to help you in the right direction of finding the problem. Hope this helps and have an awesome day James.
Problems with Nissan 2005 Altima include-Crank shaft position sensor with ECU reset, ECU Factory reset from Dealer, Low Fuel pressure requiring fuel pump replacement, Replacement of ignition coils causing misfire during start-Catalytic Converter Recall-Oxygen sensor on exhaust-Leaking Valve cover gasket-Radiator failure due to plastic top & Bottom (Constantly adding water to reservoir?)
Check the fuel lines in the engine compartment - look for leaks - also check the fuel line from the fuel filter - most commonly located on the driver rear side, just behind tire. Also, consider replacing the fuel filter.

The fuel filter and regulator are located inside the fuel tank. They do not require any maintance. If the fuel pump fails, it will come as a unit including the fuel pump, regulator and fuel filter. One less service item you have to purchase.
is caused by excess fuel that has entered the cylinder area and cannot
be burned completely. Poor fuel mileage is also a common complaint when black
smoke comes out of the tailpipe. Black smoke out the tailpipe is the
least cause for alarm. Excess fuel will usually effect engine
performance, reduce fuel economy, and produce a fuel odor. Some of the causes of excess fuel are a carburetor that
is out of adjustment, a faulty fuel pump, a leaky fuel injector, or a
faulty engine computer or computer sensor. If black smoke is present,
check the engine oil to make sure excess
fuel has not contaminated it. Do not start the engine if a heavy, raw
fuel smell can be detected in the engine oil.
