SOURCE: gas smell

There has to be a leak in the fuel system. Has it been checked while running? There will be at least 2 lines. One will be pressure and the other is a return.

SOURCE: Grand am smells like gas inside the car

I would definatly recheck the regulator to make certain you do not have any leaks.
But to be clear, you are smelling gas and not exhaust?
Also, is you cowl seal in good shape, not missing or damaged in any way?
Let me know.
Regards,

SOURCE: fuel smell

Have the fuel pressure regulator checked. I had the same problem with a 2004 Pontiac Grand Am. The only time I noticed the gas smell in the passenger compartment is when I started it first thing in the morning to let it warm up.

Hey. I checked the regulator and rail etc, turns out there is a leak at or near the injector. I will have to pull some stuff apart and take a closer look. I'm suspecting a leaking o ring on an injector???

Car is stalling at idle, loss of power, and gas smell in vents when started


Throttle position sensor or mass air sensor, more than likely TPS sensor going bad and hasn't thrown code yet.

Stalls out when gas is let off


You don't say what size engine you have, so diagnostic analysis is a bit difficult. Please supply engine size and answer these questions.

1. After it stalls, do you sometimes smell fuel?
2. Does it restart easily after a stall, or do you have to hold the gas pedal to the floor to restart it?
3. Can you keep it running by working the gas pedal?
4. Has you fuel consumption increased since this began?

I ask these questions because on most engines there is a coolant temperature sensor that the ECM used to control the amount of fuel to the injectors based upon the engine coolant temperature. When the engine is cold it supplied more fuel than when warm. If the sensor malfunctions it tells the ECM that the coolant is -40F
and that causes massive fuel to be supplied. This may not affect a cold start once the engine needs the fuel, but it will flood and stall out the motor when warm. If you can keep the engine running by pressing the gas pedal, you are allowing the motor to rev up and use the extra fuel, but you will find you gas mileage reduces by as much as half.

My 2004 elantra will loss power and smell like gets to much gas


If you smell fuel from under the hood, there is a strong possibility that you have a leaking fuel injector or fuel line. Have the car inspected by a mechanic to prevent a possible engine fire.

Starting problem after engines warm smell gas


I had the same problem. It may start to or already is stalling as you slow down or stop. I changed my fuel pressure switch located right on the fuel rail on top of the motor. It's about $80.
