You may have a potential fire issue. You probably have a fuel leak somewhere. A through dealer or competent service shop may be cheap insurance to prevent a fire total and possible other accident issue.

Smell gas inside


On my 2004 Chrysler Pacifica I noticed a gas smell inside the cabin. I could also smell the gas very strong inside the engine bay when the car was running. It turned out to be a plastic line that connects between the fuel line from the tank, and the fuel rail which was leaking fuel. This line was located on the right side of the engine bay under the air cleaner. This was right next to the HVAC system, which was why I was smelling it in the cab of the car so much.

Fuel smell inside ford 2002 explorere when running air


Hey man odds are you have a small fuel leak under the hood probably like a pinhole in a fuel line. When you turn on the ac you are pulling air from the front of the vehicle in turn pulling in the fuel smell. Find and stop the leak and that should get rid of the smell in the cab when the ac is running.

Gas smell coming from the driver vent.


Hi Doritelberg, If the fuel consumption of your vehicle has increased or there is any sign of a misfire, I believe that one of the injectors may be leaking. For fuel leakages on fuel injected vehicles, it is better to check while the engine is running as the fuel line is pressurized in that state. It would be helpful to know if the smell started after a fuel filter was replaced and what other symptoms, if any you are experiencing with your vehicle? Regards John

What are the symptoms and causes of a cloged catalytic converter


Symptoms are rough running, stalling, poor gas mileage, and especially a strong smell of rotten eggs (sulfuric acid). The main cause is old age, but poor/cheap/contaminated fuel can also be a contributing factor.
