SOURCE: 2005 Chevy Impala exhaust smell

neither one of these would cause gas to leak. sure it is not coolant ? if you think it is gas it is not safe to drive car as it could catch on fire. possible cause would be a leaking injector.

SOURCE: strong gas smell and poor gas mileage

If the gas odor is coming from the engine, than the problem is most likely a cracked or poorly seated fuel injector.

SOURCE: Strong fuel smell around vehicle jacked vehicle

I have the exact same problem with my 2006 chevy cobalt right now. That's why I am searching this. I had a mechanic friend look at it and it's the fuel pump and the lines are cracked to. Has anyone heard of a recall on this? It can't be a coincidence that we are having the same issue.

There is a strong odor of gas coming from my 2008 Pontiac G6 do you know if there is a recall


Here is a full list of your recalls.

However, y9ur gas smell could be a cracked fuel filter, or cracked full line, or loose injector port. Get it looked at if you do not know how to check these things. The heat of your engine mixed with a fuel leak is a bad combination

No service engine light? A loose gas cap will set a light.
You may want to inspect your fuel filler neck and anything close. For a long while its not uncommon for a person to report the fuel odor issue and have it be where some low life cut a filler neck or puntured a tank to steal fuel. But if that were the case there would usually be a service engine or gas cap light as the systems now days monitor pressures so they can detect leaks in the Evap system.

When you mention a smell though under the hood, do you think the smell could be exhaust? I have seen those manifolds crack. or maybe just a leak from a gasket or exhaust donut.

lift the back seat and their should be an access panel on the floor pan where you gain access to the fuel sender which houses the fuel pump and i suspect that their is a leak here on the pressure side ,now if your unsure about tackling this type of job please go straight to a local mechanic to have a look for you as the vehicle is dangerous in this condition and could catch fire and petrol vapour is more explosive than liquid petrol.

Strong gas odor but no leaks


I had an old chevy truck that was carbureted with a mechanical fuel pump. I drove for months with the same fuel smell. It ended up being a small hole in the pump itself, on the side of the engine. It evaporated too quickly from the hot engine temperature to catch. hope maybe that might help if you have a mechanical pump.
