My 2005 Chevy Impala smells gasy when ever started and sometimes after idling for awhile.


SMELL GAS YOU NEED CHECK ALL FUEL LINES UNDER THE HOOD IN THE ENGINE COMPARTMENT.IF GAS IS STRONG UNDER HOOD YOU DONT SEE LEAKING FUEL LINES.YOUR FUEL RAIL FUEL INJECTORS LEAKING OR FUEL PRESSURE REGULATOR O - RING OR DIAPHRAM LEAKING GAS.IF FIND NO LEAKS UNDER THE HOOD CHECK FUEL LINES UNDER CAR FROM ENGINE TO FUEL TANK FOR LEAKS.IF ALL IS GOOD YOUR EVAPORATIVE CANISTER SOAKED WITH GAS OR YOUR EMISSION EVAPORATIVE SYSTEM NOT WORKING. DEALERSHIP HAS TO CHECK AND FIX.

Car cranks good but won't start


Hello... I applaud all the work you have done so far... A car basically needs ignition, fuel and compression to run. I will leave the compression for last.

But lets do some simple checks.. Even though parts are replaced, check to make sure you have a strong spark, use a spark tester. They are cheap.

Check all powers and grounds running from the ignition system This includes all wires and power cables from the fuse box.

It sounds like something is loss...

I would also have the computer scanned with a scanner to see if there are any codes stored.

Good Luck.... Post back with fix... Thanks

Strong smell of gas on cold startup


I have a 2002 Impala, and on cold days on the first start of the day had strong fuel smell. I troubleshot the problem to the fuel pressure regulator on the fuel rail was leaking around the seams. I replaced the regulator and have had no problems since. Hope this helps.

Air filter full of fuel


Sounds like your injectors are going bad. It concerns me that you have a odor of gas in the trunk since all of the fuel lines run under the car. Check your fuel filler line for a leak.

What will cause a strong gas smell after turning off engine


Check the fuel cap gasket to be sure it is not torn or worn. After that check the vent hoses that run from the fuel tank to the charcole canister located somonwhere under the hood. Is the smell stronger under the hood or toward the rear of the car? If you cannot find the problem, a fuel leak is dangerous and should be attended to ASAp by somone that has the experience to repair the problem
Good Luck
