Take it in! The vechile will have to be lifted in the air, motor supported from the top, and the tranni and engine cradle dropped from underneath. I've done several in a proper repair shop and they are never fun even if you have the proper tools. And since you're asking, I doubt you have the nessecary tools to do this easily.

Gas smell

I have a 1999 Chevrolet Lumina with the 3.8L engine. In 2009 I also smelled fuel when I drove my car. My leak was located at the fuel rail output connector. Chev house said I had to replace the entire fuel line all the way back to the tank. Say what? I easily fixed the problem by installing a NAPA #7304922 3/8" Nylon Fuel Line Retainer (repair kit - $25).
