SOURCE: fuel leak, strong gas smell inside and outside of car

when you look for a fuel leak, make sure the engine is running. the fuel lines will be pressurized and you are more likely to spot the leak. if you see fuel squirting, be careful since it under a lot of pressure. it might look like a single strand of a spider web. also, you should wear eye protection since gas in the eye would be a bad thing. needless to say, don't light a match or lighter for light to find the fuel leak. since gas is explosive, you probably should take it to a shop if you can't fix it. it could be dangerous if gas drips on a hot part. fuel vapors are explosive too.

SOURCE: Burning rubber smell inside car-2003 CTS Cadillac

Diagnosing this will be subject to a process of elimination. It could be the radio, blower motor or any other accessory particularly ones with moving parts; Try switching those off and try to note when this problem occurs and what is on/whatyou are doing. Something is getting hot causing the smell so it will be a situation where the accessory will have to run a while before doing it. It is a possibility that there is an electical curcuit overheating, but less likely. Lets rule out accessories first and give us an update. GL

SOURCE: Where is oil filter located on 2008 Cadillac CTS 6

The Location of the oil filter depends on which engine you have in your CTS. the 3.2 engine the oil filter is located on the bottom of the engine to the left of the oil pan. It is not a screw on type filter it is a canister filter. You will have to unscrew the lid to gain access to the oil filter. On the 3.6 Engine the oil filter is also a canister filter but it is located on the top side of the engine. On the drivers side around the center of the engine cover. It will take a 15/16 socket to remove the lid.

SOURCE: car leaks coolant but does not overheat leaks alot

find out where the coolant is leaking from, a minor leak could become a major leak at the wrong time. check your hoses. how much coolant are you having to replace. If you don't see where the water is leaking from try warming the care up or looking for the leak after you car has been driven. Be very careful hot water can cause serious burns.

I have a cadillac cts 2008, when i fill the tank with gas and open the key the engine does not star, i have to do it one more time. what is causing this problem?


When you open the gas cap, you relieve the pressure in the fuel system. Once you replace the cap, this pressure must be reestablished. All vehicles have a fuel system "prime" function that causes the fuel pump to run for about 3-5 seconds after turning the key to bring fuel pressure to the fuel rail. It sounds as though your system isn't getting enough pressure on the first prime, so you must cycle the key twice to get full pressure. It could be a sign of the fuel pump starting to fail.

Evap emmission,control sys leak


Do not top off your gas tank. The gas is going into carbon canister which is only for fuel vapors to go into (carbon canister opening near the top of fuel neck near the gas cap). Your flooding the fuel vapor canister with liquid fuel; of course you are going to get a sensor message... 'Evap emmission,control sys leak

P0443 The fuel vapor canister reduces that gas smell on hot days outside/inside of car. The fuel vapor canister fillers bad smells from gas tank on hot days when the gas expands and burps fumes through carbon canister filter. From the canister (gas vapor fumes) goes back into the engine to be burned again...it's a closed loop for vapors to be recycled though engine. Don't worry, once the carbon canister dries out and no longer flooded with raw fuel the code should go away...just don't let the top off fuel tank back flow into the 'Evap emission control' carbon filter near the top and close to the gas cap...:)

Smell of gas fumes underneath vehicle near fuel tank


I also have a 2004 XC90 and a couple of months ago I had the exact same probelm... after multiple visits to my dealer's auto shop they figured out that it was the fuel pump. They replaced the fule pump and the smell disappeared. Good luck!
