2008 Chevy cobalt 2.2 l 133,324 miles. It just started to hesitate to start and smells like raw gas. What could it be?


Hi Jesse, IM AL the owner of Big As Auto Repair.

Jesse, if you are smelling "Raw Gas" then this is a sign of a gas leak or an injector stuck open flooding the system.
Start the engine and check for fuel leaking from the injectors sometimes and injector will leak externally. Also check for fuel leaks around the fuel line and fuel rail, also check under the vehicle, the fuel lie, tank, filler tube. The Internal Injector leak can only be checked after removal of the fuel rail (engine off). With the fuel rail in your hand have someone turn the key on (engine off) it should be a spray like pattern from each injector and no drips after the spray. NOTE: This should be checked only after there were no other issues found with the first issues I talked about. Hope this helps and please visit my auto-repair-website http://www.bigasautorepair.com/

Gas smell when shot the engine off.


stop shooting engine and leaks will , decrease some. LOL !


2004 Toy Highlander.
what you replaces is of no bearing.
what counts is realty.
find the leak.
if it really is raw gas, do not drive car or garage it.
park it far from home and people. (curb it.)
gas fumes if not real raw fuel (liquid) can come from EVAP canister
hose fell off.
first look for injector leaks (outside body)
and fuel hose leaks, (look at these first as they are 10x more dangerous that others)

does the PCM scans show DTC errors?
scan it, what do you have.?

if there is raw fuel dripping from the exhaust manifold that means
the INJECTors are stuck on or leaking, this is one of the most dangerous conditions on all EFI cars.
they to look more carefully
or better get a ASE mechanic to check the car out.
be safe.

Ford Escape will barely move when put in gear. (D or R) Floored to get to 10 MPH


If it smells of raw fuel look for a shorted injector dumping fuel into the engine

Have a 1999 Pontiac Bonneville using too much gas


it sounds like a bad purge valve. if the diaphram in side it goes bad it will **** fuel into the intake through the vacume line attached to it, check it by removing the vacume line and look for signs of fuel. if its bad it can also fill you charcoal canister with raw fuel

I have a 2006 SCION XA. I have been filling the tank on this ****** twice a week and there is no engine light coming on. I took it to the ealership and they say there is nothing wrong with it. My car is...


You should get 350 per full tank,and the smell of raw gas,you have a leak,Dont rely on the check engine light if you nose can detect it then your right,You will need to cycle the key but dont start the engine some how the fuel pump has to be turned on with the engine cold and you will be able to see the fuel leak,with the engine warm up a fuel leak will just evaporate too quicly for it to be noticed, the dealer obviously doesnt want to fiqure it out.

I have an 01 Impala 3.8 engine. At first start-up white smoke is seen, smells like raw gas, and tail pipe is black as coal. Fuel milage isn't good either. Would the regulator be bad?

Acts like its running out of gas, raw gas smell


this suggests you have a fuel leak in the engine compartment. Possibly a leaking fuel manifold (injection rail), or the rubber line from the fuel tank is leaking where it attaches to the manifold. The fuel line to the cold start injector should also be checked. Rubber hoses on older cars become brittle and as they contract from very cold weather will leak. Turn the key to on for 1 minute but do not start the car. Then check under the hood for a raw fuel wet spot where the leak is.
