Personally William McCoy...

I'd PROMPTLY take the truck down to the DEALER...

or local FIREHOUSE and get an EXPLOSION ASSESSMENT.

Anything like parking it next to or inside your house is incredibly dangerous...

Ford Dealers have (or should have) colored smoke generators to find VAPOR leaks.

Doing anything other than treating this as an incredible THREAT to your safety, health & wellness... is
INCREDIBLY POOR & ILL-ADVISED... !

Be safe.

Check the lines from the engine to the tank. Were the metal clips on top of the injectors put back on. You might have to pull the plenum back off to see if is leaking under it. Sorry to say, I have seen mechanics not put the clips back on. The clips are there to keep the injector from being pushed up in the fuel rail and not letting bottom seal.

I have a 2006 PT Cruiser, Touring non-turbo model, which does not have a schrader valve or a fuel pump fuse or relay. How do I depressurize the fuel line to remove the injector rail?


If you don't know the source of the gasoline smell, why would you go to the trouble of replacing the O rings? It would be better to identify the source before jumping into a repair like that only to find out after all that work, it still smells like fuel . you can loosen the fuel line fitting slightly to release pressure. I'd do that on a completely cold engine.

I am smell gas inside the vehicle, comes thru the vents i think. is this my fuel pump or fuel filter or something else


You likely have a leak in the line somewhere and the fumes are getting into the car through the vents. I would not drive the vehicle very far before having it throroughly checked out by a technician trained to repair gas linesa and leaks.

Did you note any gasoline on the ground when you stop the car? I would not play around with this problem for long as gasoline is extremely volatile and flammable.

Gas Smell


check under hood while it is running to see if there is gasoline dripping anywhere. You need to find it before it catches on fire. Use a bright flashlight and look at the fuel injectors and loser intake manifold as injector o-ring could be leaking. DO NOT use a lighter. Sorry, but I had to stress this. Gasoline does not burn. The fumes burn.

I have a 1997 chev lumina with 107000 miles on it. the car blows bluish smoke from the exhaust pipe and smells like gasoline. When I smell the oil dipstick it also smells like gas, would this be a bad fuel...


Dumping to much gas..could be many problems, an some that you mentioned, like a faulty fuel injector..you need to check each one with a noid light, and see how they pulsate, and see how they spray..you can do a compression check on the cylinders to see if there is a leak in the cylinder head..but your main problem maybe, that your piston rings are worn out, and instead of the gas getting ignited in the cylinder, some of it is getting by the piston rings and going down to the oil pan..and you may have oil getting up in the cylinder wall, and that's what is giving you the bluish smoke..So just do a compression check 3 different times, and write down your readings...Check your injectors, to see if one, or more is dumping to much gas...Goodluck

Gasoline smell in air vents


A gasoline smell is from a leaking hose and you need to find that fast
You could have damaged a gas line during your repair work.
Get your money back on the damper repair. There are no gas dampers on autos.

Gasoline smell from time to time


I have seen a 2004 Grand Am that had a very light leak around one of the fuel injector o-ring seals allowing fuel to seep out onto the lower intake which then vaporize when the engine would get hot making the smell.

check your coolant level and I recommend to do a presurre test. To see if you have any leaks on any of the hoses and change the radiator cap!!!
