Question about Cars & Trucks
I have also noticed gas smell upon starting engine and my mileage has gone down by half.
The mobile version is not telling me the year, make and model and engine size of your vehicle or you neglected to put it. The code is for an oxygen sensor slow response. Check for vacuum leaks exhaust leaks, fuel injector leaking....

This should show up easily on the ECU diagnostics computer at a mercedes dealership. Basically your fuel mixture is way too rich causing your car to be heavy on gas, have a raw gasoline smell, and not run right. Something like this can be caused by a defective oxygen sensor (but that usually produces a check engine light) or it might even be a defective ECU. There is really not way of knowing for sure until you do a proper diagnostics where they hook up your exhaust at the same time and do an emmission test. In most cases it's some sensor that needs replacing.

SOURCE: engine won't idle
problem sounds like IAC (idle air control) or EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) Is there a check engine (MIL) light on with rhe issue. I just replaced an EGR valve on a camry this weekend with the same issue.

change your spark plugs if they haven't been changed in awhile. check your tires for the propper psi there should be a sticker on the inside of your drivers door that will tell you recomended air pressures go by this not the recomendations on the tires. also where are you getting you gas does it contain ethanol sometimes this can burn faster.

Did you change the gas cap with a Honda gas cap? Tighten it at least three clicks?
Also, Honda recommends that you never top off the tank when getting gas (only go to the click-off of the pump; otherwise you can get back flow into the system that will cause the code).
Tightening or replacing the cap will not immediately cause the light to go off; it can take up to three days of driving for the light to reset.
To check if your readiness codes (emission system) are set, turn the ignition to ON (II), without starting the engine. The Malfunction Indicator Lamp will come on for 20 seconds. If it then goes off, the readiness codes are set. If it blinks 5 times, the readiness codes are not set.
You can, of course, try resetting your engine light to see if it will come back on (which it probably will). I believe the procedure is:
Turn off the engine.
Press and hold the Select/Reset knob (odometer) in the instrument panel, then turn the ignition switch to ON (II).
Hold the knob for approximately ten seconds until the indicator resets.
Hope this helps you.

I disagree with changing the MAF sensor. I had the same problem for about 4 years until today on my 2000 s10 4.3 4wd 125K. It runs like new, and all i did was paid 6 bucks for a can of mass air flow sensor cleaner from auto zone. Try this!! it was awesome the results
