2008 chevy cobalt has trouble starting and has a strong fuel smell

If the fuel system is dumping too much fuel into the cylinders, the check engine light should be on and you should be able to get trouble codes from the computer. The codes would point you in the direction of the problem.
Is the light on ?

Strong gas smell coming from my cobalt at all times

Look in the back of the car. The fuel pump lines like to break. You will not be able to see them, but you will smell and see that the fuel tank is wet. Call your local dealership, have you vin # and milage, ask them if it's covered by warrenty.

Strong fuel smell on my 2006 chev. cobalt.

check the air filter it could be dirty and causing the engine to flood excess gas into motor also check PVC valve make sure it works correctly it should rattle when shook back and forth.

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.

Leaking fuel or strong gas smell

i had a fuel odor in my cobalt and after lowering the fuel tank i found one of the fuel lines coming out of the tank was cracked, while removing the fuel pump both of them snapped right off. way too brittle but a new pump and sending unit (all one assembily) fixed it right up with minimal difficulty and only $250.00.
hope this helps
