Question about 2005 Chevrolet Impala

Open Question

Gas Smell/leak I have a very intense gas smell coming from the firewall area on the car. The smell comes through the air vents so when running the heater the gas smell is so powerful you can't breathe. Don't see any obvious signs of a gas leak. Can smell the gas inside the car and outside the car. What could be causing this?

SOURCE: STRONG GAS SMELL FROM 2005 CAVALIER INSIDE AND

it might be you fuel regulator it will be leaking very little but enough to get that gas smell in the cab.  Becarful not to misjudge it for the 4 injector leaking cause gas will run down right on top of it.  It sits on top of your fuel rail and it has a vacum line and a fuel line going to it. It it is leaking it will more than likly be from the rolled metal round piece buy the vacum side.  Its an easy fix but it cost aroun $60.

May be nothing more than a faulty gas cap or vent hose from the tank to the filler neck. Your charcoal canister for the fuel evaporation system may not be purging. It could be filling up with gas. It will eventually overflow, allowing you to see the problem.

Gas Fumes in Air Vents


This could be as simple as a hole in the exhaust under the cabin area. I would also check that all cylinders are firing properly. They can do a fuel pressure test to make sure there is nothing wrong in the line as well.

Gas or exhaust smell through vents


This is normally a problem with the air and fuel mixture as your fuel injector may be sending too much gas through the engine and not all is burning. This can easily be fixed by having your engine properly tuned.

Gas smell coming from the driver vent.


Hi Doritelberg, If the fuel consumption of your vehicle has increased or there is any sign of a misfire, I believe that one of the injectors may be leaking. For fuel leakages on fuel injected vehicles, it is better to check while the engine is running as the fuel line is pressurized in that state. It would be helpful to know if the smell started after a fuel filter was replaced and what other symptoms, if any you are experiencing with your vehicle? Regards John

Smell of gas and whistling sound


Its all connected.
The computer uses a solenoid to vent the fumes from the tank when the engine is running.
The vapor canister holds the fumes until the vent valve is opened.
The computer tried to vent the tank and something went wrong.
It could be from the excessive heat or something with the venting system.
A mechanic would test the venting system.

My car is smelling like gas.


From where? you haven't given enough info, but put a large piece of flattened cardboard under the car to see if any is leaking. You will then be able to see what general area it's coming from--if there is a leak.

It could be a fuel injector(s) or even something very simple. When is the last time you had a tune-up, including a new fuel filter? If it's been more than two years, it's overdue. That means new oil, oil filter, air filter, fuel filter, and spark plugs.If your car has a distributor, you should also replace the distributor cap and rotor (cap).

Try to locate a specific area where the smell is coming from. Breathing gas fumes is not healthy!

Gasoline smell in air vents


A gasoline smell is from a leaking hose and you need to find that fast
You could have damaged a gas line during your repair work.
Get your money back on the damper repair. There are no gas dampers on autos.
