Check all gas lines from your gas tank to the carburetor and see if there are damp spots and if you see any damp spots take your finger and wipe the damp spot and smell. If it smells like gas there probably is a slight leak. even a moist spot of gas will smell big time.
Check all around your gas tank as well. A question i have do you have a clean air filter. If not it might be choking itself to *****.

SOURCE: fuel problem

you might want to check your cabin air filter or the charcoal canister underneath the hood. it's purpose is to remove any excess fumes from the gastank. if it's broken or clogged that would explain why you smell gas in the car

SOURCE: run out of petrol put more in went to start car

Are you sure you ran out of petrol? It might be that the petrol pump or something else had died. The only way to tell is to undo the fuel line from the carb and turn it over, check if it pumps fuel (have someone help you with this.) You might also find that you've got a blockage in your fuel filter, caused maybe by **** left floating at the top of the tank that was sucked in when you ran out of petrol. Check the filter first and see if it's OK, then check if fuel is flowing. Also, on a 97 Alfa, I'd imagine it was fuel injected though I could be wrong. If it is then you'll want to be more careful wit the fuel line.

If you are talking about the brake fluid reservoir, you need to use brake fluid. Not oil.

SOURCE: Car smells of petrol also

Lets start with the simple stuff first. Look under the car see if its leaking gas possibly from the gas tank or the gas line. Then with the car not running look around the engine compartment and see if you see any gas leaking. Also if the gas smell is stronger in the engine compartment. Look at your gas line especially toward the top of the engine you may spot the leak. I need to caution you if the leak is in the engine compartment and your handy and you can repair it that's excellent. But if you do spot the leak it might be very dangerous to drive the car somewhere. Gas leaks can be very hazardous if they are in the engine compartment. If your not handy then I would recommend you contact your local auto repair shop for repairs.

I hope this helps you out, if it does please give me a YES on the web page you just recieved my response on. Thank you.

1) Check the HT system is good, contacts clean, good spark on the plugs.
2) Check the water temperature sensor.
3) Check the air filter isn't clogged.

Timing chain or belt


which engine?
gen 3 swift had these engines.
1.2 L I4 (petrol)
1.3 L I4 (petrol)
1.5 L I4 (petrol)
1.6 L I4 (petrol)
1.3 L I4 (diesel)

if in USA the VIN has the engine code, but you never stated country.

Put a new in tank fuel pump in 3 days ago in my hyundai accent, but can smell petrol inside the car.


I would double check that your fuel tank is sealed. Fuel fumes can be very bad for your health and can be very dangerous. Sounds as though the gas line may be leaking, or the fuel pump seal is leaking.

I had the in tank fuel pump replaced, but now can smell petrol from inside the car. why is this and is the car safe to drive?


it could be a fuel leakage or lingering smell from the mechanic getting inside the car. gas is very powerful smell so clean the car out and have air fresheners. if the smell persist even after then have the car taken back to check for any fuel leakage.

Petrol smell in side the car


Possible there is leak or a joint fault in the fill cap, the fuel tank filling hose clamp , the fuel line to the fuel pump , fuel filter.
Now since petrol is highly volatile a small gap can make the gas smell into the cabin. Please start your check from the tank to the pump and the return fuel pipe, checking for leaks which can be easily tightened or a faulty fuel line changed.

Hi there, just under the rear seats is where the fuel tank sender unit is and sometimes the seal will leak out strong smell of petrol, you need to remove the rear seats and the sender unit cap and check the seal, may need replacing, hope this helps.
