Dodge caravan 2005 has gas smell when stopped


Where is the smell coming from? Under hood? Rear/front of vehicle? It could be a leaky fuel injector... bad gas cap.... leaky fuel line... leaky tank/tank seal... disconnected evap line..... leaky pressure regulator to name a few. Have a pro inspect the fuel system to avoid a dangerous situation

The display lights on the stereo of my 2004 xc 90 don't work. The knobs don't light up either


Dealers are expensive place to get parts, so be ready for that with your Volvo XC 90 2004. Try a local salvage yard, ebay, or some other web site to get a replacement part. Otherwise, expect about $100 to fix a broken taillight.

My 1999 grand jeep cherokee gas gauge is messed up I think. I had a quarter of a tank then 5 min later it slipped to empty and the gas light came on. It seems my gas has been going really fast. Do u think...


It is not unheard of for the gas tank sending unit to have a float stick indicating more fuel was there than there truly was.

If you do not get a strong gas odor outside of vehicle, the chance of it being a leaking fuel line is very small, and you would smell it.

If it has been a while since a runeup- it cannot hurt. It will not resolve the sticking float issue though.

If it should occur again- note the temperature gauge because they source from the same regulator that mounts on the dashboard cluster; if the regulator is bad, the temperature gauges reads erroneously..

When my 2004 XC 90 sits up at night in the garage the next morning it has a gas odor from the rear of the car. The odor is outside the car but there or no obvious gas leaks.


Had the same problem. The seal around the top of the gas tank was leaking. The service rep indicated that this was a common problem.

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

Smell of gas fumes underneath vehicle near fuel tank


I also have a 2004 XC90 and a couple of months ago I had the exact same probelm... after multiple visits to my dealer's auto shop they figured out that it was the fuel pump. They replaced the fule pump and the smell disappeared. Good luck!
