You may have a hole on your tank that at certain car position and how the tank is filled up your gas comes out of that hole. The gas may also coming out of the fixed holes of the tank such us the outlet for the fuel lines. You may want to check on that while inspecting the tank

Car cranks but doesnt turn over. radiator keeps needing more water but its not leaking. gas isnt getting to the engine

could be the head gasket has gone take out spark plugs and check there condition and look for water in the piston, water and fuel dont burn well. as you have done an oil change it may have gotten into the oil but its harder to tell with new oil, as water will sit on the top of the oil.

1997 saturn sc2 fuel leak around enegine somewhere, twin cam not pump

Get a shop to look at this leak please, you are going to have a fire. You don't drive a car around with a gas leak, that is very foolish and not very safe to say the least.

Code po440 for my 2003 pontiac aztek..what does that mean? Is it seems to be running just fine. it come on like 6 months ago and then went away till yesterday.

This indicates that a part of the EVAP control system is no longer fuctioning correctly. The EVAP system consists of many parts, including (but not limited to) the gas cap, fuel lines, carbon canister, purge valve, and other hoses. The (EVAP) emission control system prevents the escape of fuel vapors from a vehicle's fuel system. Fuel vapors are routed by hoses to a charcoal canister for storage. Later, when the engine is running a purge control valve opens allowing intake vacuum to siphon the fuel vapors into the engine.

Smell gas when driving. when I put it in garage after driving the smell stays for awhile. No leaks on floor of garage.

your car may not be burning off all the fuel or you are leaking. just because you dont see it on the floor doesnt mean that your not leaking. because its hot under there your evaporating faster than you drip. check your lines starting at tank. check under hood where it connects to injection system.
run the engine and smell exhaust for fuel. put your hand at the tip while engine is cold running. if you get fuel go get a tune up. if smell it while driving you have a leak. i would need more info on the car. like has it been running a little less normal?

Smells like gas after running-no leaks doesnt seem to be loosing gas

It only takes a few drops of gas for you to smell it, you don't need to actually see gas leaking out.

This is a dangerous situation, gasoline is flammable and poisonous. First you need to check all the fuel system connections.
