If you smell gas. the service engine soon light should be on. It may be several things, parts of EVAP system, but I would look at the top of the fuel tank. Nissan has campaign on fuel tanks, where they replace the sending unit, but if the tank is corroder beyond repair aka getting re-sealed, then Nissan will replace your tank for FREEEEEEEEEE along with the sending unit. Just go to your local Nissan dealer and have them run you r VIN number to see if you have campaigns on you r truck. You may also have the lower steering shaft campaign. have your VIN checked. start there.

Gas Smell when heater turned on


When the heater is turned on, it is drawing in air from the cowl at the bottom of the windshield outside the car. If your smelling gas when you turn it on, it would suggest to me that there may be a fuel leak under the hood. A lot of Honda's have the fuel filter under the hood against the firewall. Open the hood, and see if the gas smell is any stronger, or any gas smell at all for that matter. I would strongly recommend getting the car checked as soon as possible, if you can find the source of the smell yourself.

Car has gas smell when heater is on


my question is do you smell gas when outside the vehicle? chances are it is pulling "fresh air" from outside the vehicle and might be pulling vapors due to thew fact you have a gas leak under the hood. check your engine while running and if a gas leak is seen. turn it off imediately and repair it. do not drive it until then. happy holidays

Gas smell in exhaust


you have either a blown head gasket or cracked head. The white smoke is coolant passing through the engine and exhaust. The gas smell is from compression leaking past the gasket or head, pushing fuel vapor into the air.

99 dodge dakota has gas smell in cab when heater or ac is on


sounds like you need to look through the engine bay and see if your fuel lines are wet anywhere!! There might be a possibilty that you have a leak around the gas tank so jus crawl under the trunk and look to see if it has any kind of wetness around the tank or hoses coming out of the tank!!
