    also check the throttle posistion sensor located on the drivers side near the air intake hose.
    Do you check this with gumout or is it electrically controlled sensor. Three on firewall side of engine do you know their names and can they be cleaned etc. Thank You.

It sounds like your vehicle is loading up with fuel, or you have a leak. Your vehicle has a series of sensors that detect engine temp, outside temp, humidity and air pressure to get you the perfect mix for the prevailing conditions. It sounds like everything is ok during warm up, but as the engine warms, your mix does not properly adjust. These sensors can be checked with an OBD I code reader to see if a diagnostic is stored. Check all fuel lines and connections for possible leaks as well. Good Luck! I hope you find this to be very helpful!

    Worth noting...the Nissan Quest and Mercury Villager were both built by Ford in the same plant. Both of these models, after some age, have a history of gas smell. The fuel lines run along the frame rails and the clamps have caused some issues. Check these very good, you may have sepage. Good Luck!

    Also, just found this, I will post the repair another villager owner had to do to repair his fuel smell.



    I had to replace all the rubber fuel line in the engine compartment to get rid of the fuel smell/leak. I believe there are 3 sections past the fuel filter. One on each side of the engine (passenger side is a real pain) and the rubber line going from the filter to the fuel rail. I recommend just replacing all of those. I originally replaced just the hose clamps. That worked for a year but then the hoses started to get cracked and would slowly leak under pressure when it got cold. The colder it got, the worse it was becasue rubber expands as it gets cold. Be sure to use High Pressure fuel line or else it will blow a hole. Also, if you are having this problem with the rubber fuel line, look at replacing the rubber cooling hoses as well. Rubber does not last forever. My cooling hoses went first. Replace both of those as well. I done one and had to do the second within four months.

If the gas smell seems to be from the engine compartment, check for
any gas leaks along the fuel rails, and the lines that feed them.
The fuel rails run along side the valve covers and supply gas to each
cylinder. Also check for vacum leaks around the intake manifold.
The best way to check for vacum leaks is, use a can of gumout and
spray a little around the vacum lines and connections. the engine will
rev up when gumout hits a leak. You can also check the throttle posistion sensor located on the drivers side near the air intake hose.
And you have 3 idle air control solenoids at the firewall side of the manifold. Also check for any broken or loose evap hose they can give
a gas smell as well. If there is anything that I missed in your post, or
there is somthing I wrote that needs to be better explained. Get back to
me here. I will go into it a little more.
I hope I have been of some help. Good luck.

1997 Villager gas smell when outside temperatures are hot and vehicle has been driven.


A common problem with Nissan products, which this van is a Nissan Quest with Mercury trim.
There are several small rubber fuel hoses around the intake. When the air temp is cold these hoses can leak and then stop leaking when the air temp warms up.
When the air temp is cold, look around the intake with the engine running and you should see one of the hoses wet with fuel.
Just tighten the clamp.

Gas smell inside a car


I purchased a 93 Villager in 1999 and it developed a gasoline smell inside. The problem was the fuel filler hose / pipe that was covered by a manufacturer's recall. It was repaired by the Mercury dealer at no cost to me. You should contact the local Mercury dealer. This year Villager also had a problem with the crankshaft breaking, although they never had a recall for that problem, the crankshaft diameter was increased for the 94 and newer models.

Ran out of gas. after putting gas into my 93 mercury villager it would not start. please HELP


2 Suggestions:
Check the gas reset button located besides the parking brake pedal (red button), press it and try to turn it on.
Check with a mechanic if the gas pump still works (if you ran out of gas you could probably have damaged your gas pumpby overheating it)
