SOURCE: strong gas smell and poor gas mileage

If the gas odor is coming from the engine, than the problem is most likely a cracked or poorly seated fuel injector.

SOURCE: gas odor when at stops sign or parking in garage

I recently had the same problem. It turned out that the fuel regulator on the engine at the left side just above the intake manifold had an intermitent leak. The gas leaking was not always visible so I had the regulator changed and that solved the problem.

There is a srtrong odor of gasoline or maybe brake fluid whenever i start and run?


Sounds like two different problems.
I would have the engine computer checked for trouble codes and the body computer for ABS codes.
The brake problem could be the master cylinder, the gas smell could be a fuel leak or a problem with the venting system for the gas tank.

No service engine light? A loose gas cap will set a light.
You may want to inspect your fuel filler neck and anything close. For a long while its not uncommon for a person to report the fuel odor issue and have it be where some low life cut a filler neck or puntured a tank to steal fuel. But if that were the case there would usually be a service engine or gas cap light as the systems now days monitor pressures so they can detect leaks in the Evap system.

When you mention a smell though under the hood, do you think the smell could be exhaust? I have seen those manifolds crack. or maybe just a leak from a gasket or exhaust donut.

Strong gas odor


  1. The fuel lines may have a leak: Replace leaking fuel lines and/or fuel line fittings.
  2. The engine may have mechanical problems: Check vacuum lines and fittings for leaks. Check engine compression. Check for broken fittings and mounts.
  3. The fuel pressure regulator may be operating at too high a pressure: Perform fuel pressure test and repair or replace faulty component(s).
  4. The ignition timing may be set wrong: Check and adjust ignition timing.
  5. The fuel injectors may leak: Clean or replace fuel injectors.
