My first suspicion is that the car had been in an accident and was not properly repaired. Check all the hoses for exhaust gas recirculation and fuel systems. Particularly look for rubber hoses, large or small, that may be pinched, cracked or damaged. You will need the car up on a hoist and a really good flashlight. I might also help to fill the car with gas first, so any leaks would show up more easily. You aslo have some systems that are supposed to direct gas fumes to be burned. Try to check these.
I think you know never to fill the gas tank past the first "click", right?
Be blessed.

Car has gas smell when heater is on

my question is do you smell gas when outside the vehicle? chances are it is pulling "fresh air" from outside the vehicle and might be pulling vapors due to thew fact you have a gas leak under the hood. check your engine while running and if a gas leak is seen. turn it off imediately and repair it. do not drive it until then. happy holidays

My 1995 Nissan Maxima wont start. I smell gas.

Sounds like a bad fuel pump, check if the smell comes under the rear wheels and also check for a loud humming noise when the key is turned to on. Those are signs of a bad fuel pump.

Why does my 1999 Maxima hesitate sometime when I step on the gas. It seems to be getting worse?

Tuned up lately? semms a bad MAF sensor or EGR valve, also a cogged fuel/air filter can cause this or even bad spark plugs can cause this to happen.

Can't start 1990 nissan maxima. it's like it's not getting gas although I can smell gas

Thats because your engine is flushed with gas and not enough air from cranking the engine so much. If you smell gas, then the car is getting gas. Gas is not your problem. It might be your starter or check your ignition system such as spark plug, etc.....

Gas smell

check for leaks in the fuel line from the gas tank up to the engine bay.the humming sound you hear at the back is your wheel needs to be replaced.
