    When u fill the gas tank do u keeping adding fuel after the pump clicks off? this is called top off, it is illegal in Califoria, it loads up the vapor recovery system, mainly the carbon cannister.

Check for fuel leaks around filter or cracked gas line. best way to tell is wrap line with paper towel. run engine for a few minutes and then check towel for gas. move until you find area of leak. good luck

Mazda 2008 mx5: I am getting engine fumes coming into the cabin via the cabin air intake.


There are a couple of things to consider...

First the cabin air intake is generally in a tray that once the engine compartment hood or bonnet is closed should be almost completely isolated from the engine compartment due to the rubber sealing strip and other rubber components. Perhaps some of these are missing or in poor condition. If heater intake water drains are fitted they should be self closing...

In good condition normal smells or fumes should not get past those seals.

The other consideration is where are the fumes coming from? Unless the engine has an exhaust or oil leak or a breather problem the amount of fumes generated to leak into the cabin, even if the sealing isn't in good order, should be minimal.

Does my 2009 ford explorer have a cabin air filter?


I don't list a cabin filter available for 2007 - 2009 Explorer.
Usually the smell is trapped water in the hvac box due to a plugged drain line. The water is supposed to drain onto the ground under the truck when the ac is on.

2002 Dodge Intrepid burnt plastic/wire smell after about 15 minutes


There usually is a vent option for recirculated or cabin air. Have you tried to change what setting it is on , you may need to clear cabin air. I am not familiar with this model , but cars are coming out now with cabin filters, they need to be changed depending on driving conditions ie dusty , dirty conditions need more changing

Cabin smells when heat or defroster is on


What your smelling is most likely coolant (antifreeze). You may have a heater core leak. If you dont smell the same smell after running the A/C or just vented cool air from outside for a few minutes then that is your problem.
