Re: Gas smell inside my 2005 Pontiac Grandam
It will have zero effect, I would check and see if the carbon canister vapor recovery is saturated with fuel, this is the most common cause, also check all the lines and the bottom of fuel tanl for an oil stain, that si left by gas.

Hello! No it is not normal and is a known fault...A break on the plastic line on the top of the fuel tank which connects to the fuel pump is the likely cause...The entire fuel pump assembly needs to be replaced...This has happened on many 2007 Torrents...I would suggest taking it to a reliable mechanic to have it repaired...Dealer cost are outrageously high...There is a Tank Pressure Sensor that does not need to be replaced and you can purchase a pump assembly without that sensor...The price difference is $90... See photo, and part # of a replacement pump that does not include the sensor...the old sensor must be transferred to the new assembly... Guru................Saailer
ACDELCO Part # M10090....Cost at rockauto.com is $325
sounds like you might have a fuel pressure regulator going bad.Check for fuel in the map sensor and also check for fuel laying in the air intake tube that is connected to the throttle body.If you have fuel in either of these then your fuel pressure regulator is bad.If you want to test the regulator pinch off the return line if the fuel pressure does'nt rise then its bad.
The fuel pressure regulator may be bad and leaking gas on the intake manifold. It's a cylinder shape with a vacuum line and it's connected to the fuel injector rails. When the diaphragm goes bad in the regulator, gas will leak from it and on to the engine, which give you the smell of gas through out the car when it's running. Good luck and keep me posted, Auto Zone sell them for around $15.00 and that can give you the step by step instructions with common tolls and takes about 15 to replace.
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.
Your carbon canister may be saturated with fuel due to a clogged filter, this is part of the fuel vapor recovery system, or Evaporative emissions system. The canister looks like a coffee can or in some cases it is oblong shaped, it may be in the finder liner or out in the open near the radiator.
all the injectors are supposed to constantly spray fuel when the car is runing,
but on the hard to start it might be a worn out fuel pump or
a leak on the fuel pressure regulator, unplug the vacium hose from the regulator and if there is any fuel at all then regulator is not good
