SOURCE: fuel leak, strong gas smell inside and outside of car

when you look for a fuel leak, make sure the engine is running. the fuel lines will be pressurized and you are more likely to spot the leak. if you see fuel squirting, be careful since it under a lot of pressure. it might look like a single strand of a spider web. also, you should wear eye protection since gas in the eye would be a bad thing. needless to say, don't light a match or lighter for light to find the fuel leak. since gas is explosive, you probably should take it to a shop if you can't fix it. it could be dangerous if gas drips on a hot part. fuel vapors are explosive too.

SOURCE: what will cause a strong gas smell after turning off engine

Check the fuel cap gasket to be sure it is not torn or worn. After that check the vent hoses that run from the fuel tank to the charcole canister located somonwhere under the hood. Is the smell stronger under the hood or toward the rear of the car? If you cannot find the problem, a fuel leak is dangerous and should be attended to ASAp by somone that has the experience to repair the problem
Good Luck

SOURCE: 1979 cad fleetwood brougham knocking sound from,engine

Sometimes collapsed lifters or loose rocker arms can cause knocking sounds in an engine. However, the fact that there was a possible loss of oil pressure and that the knocking gets louder as the rpm's increase, would indicate that there is damage to a connecting rod bearing and possibly the crankshaft. If the latter is the case you are looking at a fairly substantial repair bill.

Strong gas fumes outside of car


Possibly the vent line that routs fuel vapors from the gas tank to the charcoal canister has come loose. Check the hoses and lines around the fuel tank for leaks. There will be a fuel feed line to engine, a fuel return line from engine, and the evap. line or hose that carries the fuel vapors.

Hesitating and knocking after replacing o2 sensor/ STRONG SMELL OF GAS FUMES


Strong smell of gasoline fumes means that there may be other issues involved than the O2 Sensor.
If it is enough of a smell that you believe gasoline is leaking in the engine compartment, I would not drive the car. The catalytic converter goes up to over a thousand degrees under the car after it is stopped. If vapors accumulate in that area. You could have a fire. NOT SAFE !!.
I would have the car towed to the nearest reliable service facility if you suspect a leak.
If you are working on the car yourself. Open the hood, pull the air cleaner and look for leaks in the fuel injection system. Along the fuel rails and where the injectors go into the manifold.
If it is just flooded then that could have something to do with the O2 Sensors. Please, use caution.
Hope this helps,
Mark
