Yesterday I was leaving work and my van started running rough and it smells like gas. It was not shutting off just runs and idols rough. It was fine this morning when I took the kids to school then started...

Sounds like it could be a gasket leak, or a fuel line leak. Here's why; when the motor gets hot things expand/swell, with it acting up in the afternoon only i think it could be due to more heat causing expansion as compared to when it is cold. I would check for leaks first due to such an intense aroma of gas. Then i would look for gasket leaks around the throttle body which can be checked by spraying starting fluid around the throttle bottle and taking notice if there is any performance/idle change. IF so there is a leak, try to pin point it if possible. Most likely though i would say a fuel leak of some sort so look for a puddle of gas or wetness in the engine compartment around the intake manifold.

1994 bmw 525I over heating and it's not the radiator what do I do

Normally overheating is caused by a leak in the cooling system . Do a pressure test on the system to determine where the leak is. In car heater core is a possible place for a leak. Is there a sweet smell in the car when the heater is on , or fogging on the windshield. Also check the auxillary cooling fan.

Check to see if the water is coming from the center of the front of the engine or if it is coming from one of the sides of the front of the engine. If it is from the side it is probably a busted hose and cheap and easy to fix. If it is coming from the center, locate the water pump and look at it from the underside there is a weep hole there and if it is leaking from that hole the water pump needs to be replaced.

Gasoline Smell as soon as car is turned off. No Air Conditioner.

not much to go off here, but i would think if you are always smelling the gas after you shut it off and it is not someone around you, then yes, you have a leak. This leak could be the gas cap even. Sometimes o-rings on the fuel rail can go bad causing it to drain off the excess gas when shut off. but you would notice really bad gas milage. I hope this helps as your description was pretty vague.

You have to have a leak somewhere. Put a large pc of cardboard under your car overnight. In the morning take notice of where the stain is on the cardboard.
