    Well not really sure, I just notcied when I went to wal mart and was leaving i smelt gas really bad. I thought it was just the truck next to me because as i drove off the smell went away. I made another stop and as i started the car again, the smell returned and i pulled the car back and where the car was sitting there was some gas on the ground about the size of a basketball under where the engine was at the time. I got out and smelled the drip and it was gas.. the car seems to be running fine just curious as to what that would be..

It sounds like the return fuel line is leaking. There are two fuel line and one is the high pressure line which goes to the fuel pressure regulator then to the fuel rails. There is then a return line from the fuel rail to the gas tank.
With the amount of fuel leak, it's going to be the return line since it's not that bad compared to the high pressure side. Follow the fuel lines from the drivers side around the steering shaft to the engine. The high side and low side (return) run side by side and you should see it leaking when the engine is running.
Good luck and hope this helps.

Chevy lumina 1994 wont start smells like gas


Could be flooded out.Try starting it again with the gas pedal to the floor. Everytime you turn the key on, it shoots gas in the engine. When you try to start it, keep doing it for 20 to 30 seconds. Then let off. wait a couple minutes and do it again.

I have a 1994 Chevy Beretta, 2.2L 4 Cylinder. My Problem: Car will not start. Solutions that I have tried, and what I have done thus far. First time car would not start, I tapped on the Idle Air Control...


Sounds like your problem is electrical .... by now you may have flooded the spark plugs with gas .. so you might want to go ahead an pull them out, an see if the tips are wet from the gas ... If so replace them ... But before you put them back in, just plug them up on the wires, an have some one to crank it over, an make sure you you have good spark, at each spark plug... If not, you may need to replace your coil pack/s, which ever one is bad... you should have two on this vehicle .. Goodluck ...

If you smell fuel, then there is a fuel leak. If the fuel is leaking, then the fuel system is not able to hold proper pressure in the fuel rail. Find the source of the leak and repair. The leak is most likely small, and when you cycle the key, the pump can pressurize the system, but not to its full pressure rating. Fuel pressure is a critical criteria that must be consistent at all times for proper engine performance.

I have 2000 chevy impala 3.4 engine i have check engine light with this code p0442 took it it to auto zone they said it was a small leak dont know where to start


This indicates a fuel vapor leak in the EVAP control system. It means a very small leak has been detected. In fact, the leak can be from a hole as small as 0.04" in diameter. The (EVAP) emission control system prevents the escape of fuel vapors from a vehicle's fuel system. Fuel vapors are routed by hoses to a charcoal canister for storage. Later, when the engine is running a purge control valve opens allowing intake vacuum to siphon the fuel vapors into the engine.
code P0442 most likely means one or more of the following has happened:
  • A loose or improperly affixed gas cap
  • A non-conforming gas cap (i.e. not factory/original brand)
  • A small leak/hole in a fuel vapor hose/tube
  • Other small leak in EVAP system
  • Faulty vent o-ring seal
With a P0442, the most common repair is to:
  • Remove and reinstall the gas cap, clear the codes, and drive for a day and see if the codes come back.
  • Otherwise, replace the gas cap, or
  • Inspect the EVAP system for cuts/holes in tubes/hoses

check your oil. pull the dipstick and smell the end of it. find out if you can smell gas in the oil. If so the car won't start because it is fuel fowled. change the plugs. be aware this will only solve the problem until enouph gas gets back through and fowles them again....... have it checked to find out why you gas is getting to your plugs.
