I'm smelling gas fumes inside the car when I'm idling but as soon as I accelerate it goes away


Gas smells come from leaks or the engine running too rich ( over fueled ). You need to inspect for any wetness/dampness around the fuel lines/rail and injectors if the smell appears from under the hood. If the engine is over fueled, a scan test can be performed to find out why. Sometimes oil leaks on/around the exhaust system can also give a fuel type smell. Have the vehicle checked for this also.

2002 ford taurus smell gas when the outside temperature is over 80 degrees


Fuel tanks have a vent tube and a charcoal cannister to capture the gas fumes from the tank. It's possible there is a cracked or loose hose, faulty fuel cap, bad canister or a fuel leak and any one of many connections. Investigate for sign of raw fuel along the underside of te vehicle, and in the engine compartment. Attempt to follow the smell to isolate the location of a leak.

Strong gas smell inside of car


is there a leak in your fuel line, or possibly your fuel filter, if you see raw gas leaking, then it is dangerous for you tio continue to drive it, it only takes one spark to ignite it, however, if the smell is just your car burning rich and the exhaust has holes in it, it will smell up the inside of your car. And yes if your carb. is burning too rich then it needs adjusted. Wasting your fuel, and overloading your engine. I hope some of this was helpfull.

I smell gas fumes and I'm not sure where its coming from.


It's possible that you have a fuel line or injector leaking on the engine. With the engine OFF take a look near the front center of the top of the engine by the fuel lines and injectors for any dampness or strong odors. I have seen a few leaks in this area and usually you'll catch a whiff of raw gas inside the vehicle as you sit in traffic or when you walk by the vehicle after shutting it off. Because of the risk of fire you should have this smell checked out as soon as possible.Good luck, hope this helps!

Gas order inside vehicle - could this be caused from the fuel pressure regulator?


If it is a gasoline ( raw fuel, unburned) smell, it could be caused by a number of fuel line related problems and leaks including the fuel pressure regulator. If it is an exhaust smell, check for an exhaust leak in or near the engine compartment.
There should be a cowling hood seal at the rear of the hood that is supposed to keep those fumes out of the passanger compartment.
Good luck.

When accelerator is pressed down the engine stuters until use ease off the pedel. can only use 1/4 to 1/2 throttle.


The most common problem for this is the fuel filter or dirty spark plugs. If it is the plugs you would have a slight miss when idleing or be able to smell gas fumes from exhaust. Also your gas mileage would go down. The fuel filter will cause the vehicle to feel like it will stall and die when you try to accelerate or raise the rpm's in idle. I hope this helps. If you try both and it does not help try pulling the trouble codes and having them checked.
