I had a similar problem with a 2000 Kia Sportage. The check engine light came on all the time. Part of the problem seemed to be the fuel cap having high pressure. Then one fine day I smelled gas fumes from the rear of the vehicle. After removing the fuel pump cover in the rear behind the seats, I found gas coming from a hose from the tank. I then (sometime later) I found a crack in another hose. The hose was from the filler neck. It caused a lack of vapor pressure and a smell. The check engine light now was off.

SOURCE: when I'm pumping gas it

New cars have small diameter pipes to the fuel tank, this is because the pump nozzle is smaller for no lead fuel and it has been my experience you can't pump new cars fast like in the old days, it is something U have to live with.

Pumping gas will not help. My guess is you have no fuel rail pressure due to bad fuel pump. Find shrader valve on fuel rail and test it for pressure.

Gas smell


The Kia Has a Pocket Of Air Space When your Pushing Gas In On A refueling Take it Slow Add you gas at a lower speed on fill ups or say 20 bucks worth at a time it wont over flow with the air back lash if you slow down that was my experience With mine the inlet hose to the tank has always trapped air from internal pressure built up by gasoline in the tank during warmer weather it will be more, The Gas Cap Is Supposed to Vent Also You might want to check yours out

Help with gas fumes smell


Was fuel smell present before you had fuel pump replaced? If yes I would sugest you drop tank and see if fuel vent hose is plugged forcing fuel back pressure line to vent through cap. If fuel smell was not present before you replaced fuel pump and seal. I would suggest you drop tank back out and check all fittings and hose conections. also if you still have old sending unit you could check to make sure they are exactly the same. As Sometimes you have to pull relief valve from old sending unit and install it in the new one, as some sending units wont have one in it. and some will have one that is regulated at a different fuel pressure. hope this helps Vic

Slow to start after key is on, pumping gas helps but the smell is very rich, like a carburator problem. Also the engine light came on during a short drive then went out. Any ideas?


No need to pump the gas on any modern car. This is a fuel injected car and if you are smelling fuel there is a problem and you should take it to a qualified mechanic.

I have a 2008 F-250 when the heater is on and the truck is stopped or driving under 15 MPH the heater blows cold air, if you speed up it starts blowing hot again. What could this be?


Could be low coolant, could be a bad head gasket or other point where combustion gasses are entering coolant.

The heater core fills with bubbles, it's commonly the highest point in the cooling system. When the motor is turning slow the water pump isn't moving enough water to force the bubbles to go on through the heater core but when you speed the motor up the pump is able to force the bubbles down to the motor. They'll go to the top radiator tank and then out the pressure cap to the recovery tank. Look for bubbling in the coolant recovery tank.
