Question about 1993 Toyota Camry V6

1 Answer

There is an intermittent gas smell.

There doesn't seem to be an apparent pattern. The smell comes and goes. The smell is sometimes stronger than other times. Is this common with 1993 Camry's with relatively high mileage?

This is not common on these models. Check all gas lines, pump seals(under the rear seat), gas filler hose for leakes...hopefully this helps

Gas smell coming from my tail pipes


There are some safeguards which diagnose rich fuel conditions. If you have a hybrid which has a start-stop feature, this may be a reason for the smell.

Have someone check underneath the car for fuel line leaks just in case. If the system is running rich, a warning will appear. Sometimes old gas will make the exhaust smell stronger and if you used the E85 there will be more odor.

Burning smell


If it smells like burning a burning plastic/ceramic then your brakes are locking up and burning. Next time it does it, see if the smell is coming from the rear tire. if so, its time for a brake job

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.

I have a gas smell that seems to be coming from engine compartmen


you HAVE a gas leak, the best way for this problem is to use your senses of smell and sight.
Look for gas leaking at the same time smell for the strong smell of gas and locate the area.

Strong smell of gas inside and outside the vehicle


there can either be a hole in the tank or in the carbon filter of the fuel system. or a bad seal on a hose leading to that Carbon filter. But assuming that the smel is stronger at the rearside, it is more likely to be an issue around the gas tank. Maybe if the belly 'sat' on a rock it could be even on the upper part of the tank(but not that likely, rather a joint again)

rate please
