If you smell fuel its a leak. Start the car pull up the hood. Let it run for a little bit . Follow the fuel lines you will see it driping somewhere. This needs to be taken care of or otherwise you will have a car fire and yiu will lose your car.

Truck starts drives afew miles and then it almost dies or does die when brakeing at stop very strong smell of gas


How long since a tune-up? Are there any applicable trouble codes? Use a gage and check proper fuel pressure? See if system is running rich or lean, of course it sounds like it is running rich.
With idle issues, clean throttle body and idle air system.

91 geo tracker died while driving cant get it started again


when you crank it, do you smell fuel? if you do, you're getting fuel so try replacing the distributer cap and even the plugs. if no gas smell, the fuel filter needs changing or the fuel pump is bad.

I have a 2004 Chrysler Sebring Sedan 2.4 DOHC. About a year ago, When my fuel gauge would go below 1/2 tank of fuel, I start having problems. It sputters and dies when I stop. It starts back up fine,...


Hi Angie,
I don't want to be too harsh, but you need to stop randomly replacing parts and stop putting chemicals in your fuel tank.
I have been in the auto repair business for over 36 years and that garbage that they sell at the parts stores have never fixed a drivability problem that I have ever seen. Those things are only stuff that "snake-oil salesmen" use to part desperate people from their hard-earned cash. There is no such thing as "mechanic in a can".

A seasoned, well trained, automotive repair technician with a few years of experience, can scan your engine computer, look at the data when the engine is running poorly, and give you a pretty good idea of what is causing your problem....This is what is called DIAGNOSTICS. You can spend a fortune and loose a lot of hair over trying to "guess" what the problem is.

Please also review the following articles. You may find them somewhat "enlightening".

Older Nissans have a lot of vacuum line. basically anything that is a small rubber hose that is in the engine bay is a vacuum line. mostly lines that connect to the intake, throttle body, and valve cover. since they sre so numerous I can;t begin ot explain where to start but those are the basics.

My 2003 Hyundai Elantra Starts by then Dies, as though it's not getting gas.


No! If you can start it right back up I seriously doubt it but you do ablsolutely need to change fuel filters every 15,000 miles and forget about oil changes they do nothing for the car. But a plugged fuel filter will kill a fuel pump and average cost of a gob like that here in Seattle is around $500-700.
But you need to find that leak and fix it you can be loosing enough fuel pressure through that leak to cause a problem like yours.
Please rate me as a fixya! Thank you Randy
