I have a fuel smell occasionally. Really strong. Drive about 10 min gone.


Hi there
It is rather unusual as the fords dont get that problem but there is always a first.
So check the tank breather as the return from the pump that isent used could be coming back into the tank and out of the breather behind the filler cap door,or a leak in and around the injector pump or return tube, but get it checked out as a smell can turn into a problem,
a bad problem.

My two rear doors will not open when unlocked from the inside and also my Gas Tank door will not open and seems to be locked.


The two rear doors seems to be a child safety lock issue. Check on the door jams and see if there is a switch, or check your manual if you have one. The gas tank door should also have a switch in the car, or a cable beside the seat or somewhere. I'm not that familiar with BMW, so i am just trying to do some helpful guessing.

When the engine is shut off I can hear what i think is a door or something in the AC system behind the clove box open and close from time to time. Any ideas about what this might be?


You probably have a small leak in your HVAC system. It operates the doors using vacuum and defaults to defrost when there is no vacuum. The system stores vacuum so that the setting doesn't change when you shut off the engine. However, if there is a small leak the system may work fine but would leak into the default when you shut off the engine. This is not an issue, but if it gets worse the switch may stop working. Recommend you look for the small (usually black) vacuum line that goes from the engine intake manifold thru the firewall to your HVAC switch and see if it has a leak. You can also check under the dash to see if any of the various vacuum lines running the system are leaking or off their actuators.

How can I loosen the lever for the gas tank to open? I have tried spraying it with WD40 (both the lever and the switch in the gas cap) but it still seems hard to pull and it won't open the door to the gas...


I have a 2007 Hyudai Santa Fe and had the same problem this morning. I wasn't sure what to do and couldn't find any solutions mentioning this, so I thought I would.

My tank wasn't frozen or anything and the cable tension seemed fine. If you go to the trunk there should be an access panel on the left side wall behind the tank (has a picture of a fuel pump on it), open this up and you will see an emergency fuel tank pull cord which will open the tank. Once I opened mine, I found that the little cord that holds the gas cap on was jammed in the door hinge. I tested it a few times with the "normal" release on the driver side door and it works fine now.

2007 honda odyssey passenger side power sliding door will not open or close


If it will not open or close using the remote and all other functions of the rmote work then it is likely to be the remote receiver inside the door behind the door liner. If it will not open or close using the handles the coupler may not be fastened that goes to the motor behind the right side liner. Or the motor may be bad. If you turn the doors off using the switch at the drivers left side and they still won't open or close check to see if the door is still on the rollers and not jammed up. The power motor may have gone bad or it may need to have the cable tension adjusted.

2002 Volvo S80 automatically shuts off filling the gas tank at 1/2 tank capacity? Fuel pump was replaced in December 2008. The gas leak problem cited by mastercarpen was fixed but now the gas tank will not...


I had a similar problem with my 1999 S80. Give this a try. You don't need any mechanical experience. At no point will you come into contact with any gasoline. This is a five minute fix if it's what I think it is.
Background: when you gas up your car, it goes down a tube to the gas tank. There is a vent on that tube to let off gas fume pressure that can build up in the tank. If the vent gets clogged pressure builds up in the tank. Modern gas pumps shut off when that pressure comes back up the tube from the tank. I think if you clean out the vent with a Q-tip you'll solve your problem. At least, it worked for me.
  1. Get a flashlight and some Q-tips (I suppose anything long and pokey will do).

  2. Go to where you put the gas in (you don't need to open to door or take the gas cap off).

  3. Crawl under the car behind the tire and look up with the flashlight to about where you'd put the gas in. You should see something like the picture below (taken from my 1999 S80). Note that at the end of the red arrow, you can look up inside the tube a bit? When I was having this problem I could only see what looked like white cotton inside the tube. It turns out it was an old spider's nest. The spider was long dead from the gas fumes, but his nest made it impossible for me to fill up my car!

    (fig. 1 - a vent for the tube that leads to your gas tank)

  5. Place a Q-tip in the hole indicated by the red arrow. Swirl it around a bit. You shouldn't have to jam it or be very forceful. The Q-tip should remove any blockage.

    I suppose it's possible that when you open the blockage some gas fumes will vent out, so don't be smoking while you do this :) Now that I've said this, to be super-duper safe why not do this outside away from any chance of open flame.

  6. Go gas up your tank and see if it works. It did for me.

Good luck!

Code 455 with low fuel level indicator light flashing comes on in my mercedes e 420


you have a leak in the fuel evaporative emission system. The fuel light flashes when the gas tank and system is not sealed, and the purge control cant **** vacuum or hold vacuum in the tank. Usually its the gas cap not sealing the tank correctly, the "activated charcoal canister shut off valve" wont completely close the system, or the "purge control valve" under the hood isnt opening/pulsing correctly enough for the engine manifold vacuum to create the vacuum in the gas tank
