Rough idle smell after stopped running


If you have a strong gasoline smell, get that car into a mechanic ASAP. Forget fooling around trying to discover the problem yourself. Gas explodes, right? You already have a strong smell. That means that somewhere down the fuel system line there is an active leak and that is dangerous. The fact you have to post here means you don't know anything about a car, so stop messing around with a potential lethal problem. I am an old alley mechanic from wayyyyy back and am speaking from experience.

Why does my 2002 Dodge Grand Caravan smell like gasoline intermittantly?


I had this problem with my minivan as well. The gas line had become old and started to corrode. It only smelled like gas when we started the engine, something to do with the pressure in the lines I believe. Was a fairly cheap fix (under $100), just a piece of plastic hose. Most of the expense was the labour.Have a mechanic check it out.

My 1990 ford taurus lost power while siting at a light, also shut off, started back up but vibrated really hard then shuts back off after 10 to 15 seconds, smell gasoline really strong


Sounds like you had a fuel line break. Turn the car on until it stops. Try to follow the smell. Back or underneath or front. Look for pools of fuel. Inspect the top of the engine, fuel lines, rails and injectors.

91 Maxima Gasoline odor when I first start the car


If it is running fine, the busted bolt isn't the source of the gasoline smell. The intake manifold has vacuum, so the smell wouldn't be getting out, air would be going in, and a vacuum leak would give you poor idling. The exhaust manifold wouldn't have much raw gasoline smell. But it would have loud noise if the broken bolt were causing an exhaust leak.

Check that the vapor recovery line is not broken or disconnected. The hose connectors get cracked. If that were broken, it would cause a gasoline smell after the car has been sitting, especially if it has been sitting in the sun, heat driving gasoline vapor out of the tank. It is supposed to condense in the vapor canister, but some escapes if the line is broken. If it is broken, driving would **** out the gasoline from the line and the wind would dissipate the smell.

Or it could be a leaking injector. With the injector cover off, engine idling and cool, you can visually look for raw gas around the injectors and injector rail connections.

Hope this helps.

Gasoline smell off and on


Have them check EGR tubes, and any hoses, or tubes running to the exhaust. My guess is ones leaking while driving & getting drawn up into the incoming air at the cowl.

Did you fix this yet?
Are you getting fuel to the plugs?
Try starting the car, then remove one of the plugs. Check for the smell of fresh gasoline. You could also try smelling the exhaust to see if there is a fresh unburt gasoline smell.
If your getting fuel, then the fuel system is probably not the problem.
Are you getting spark to the plugs?
After you replaced the Distributor, did you adjust the timing?
