Hi! The gasket of the fuel float may be worn thats why you can smell fuel from the compartment. Try replacing it and it will resolve it. Hope this helps and have a good one!

2007 pontiac torrent problems


Usually if you can smell fuel inside the cabin the vapors are coming in thru the vent system from the engine compartment.
Could be a fuel leak or a problem with the vapor canister.

Engine 2.2 hard to start in am or pm and strong smell of gas after it starts.


It sounds like a leaking fuel injector(s) dumping fuel into a stopped engine. OR it could be a leaking fuel line.. It the gas smell in the engine compartment or out the exhaust? Engine compartment means leaking fuel line.

Put a new in tank fuel pump in 3 days ago in my hyundai accent, but can smell petrol inside the car.


I would double check that your fuel tank is sealed. Fuel fumes can be very bad for your health and can be very dangerous. Sounds as though the gas line may be leaking, or the fuel pump seal is leaking.

I had the in tank fuel pump replaced, but now can smell petrol from inside the car. why is this and is the car safe to drive?


it could be a fuel leakage or lingering smell from the mechanic getting inside the car. gas is very powerful smell so clean the car out and have air fresheners. if the smell persist even after then have the car taken back to check for any fuel leakage.

Strong raw fuell smell inside the car intermitantly


Usually, what you smell inside the car is coming thru the vent from the engine compartment.
So it could be a leak around the engine or the vapor canister. Its possible the canister gets overloaded from time to time when the computer vents the gas tank to the canister. A very small leak can be a very strong smell inside the car.

Strong gas odor inside van and outside. Check engine light came on today. No leaks drives fine. just passed emmissions 4days ago


Good thing you passed before the engine light came on. You should mos def get the code from that engine light. If you smell gas you have a leak in the system. Same thing happened to me i had to drop the tank and change the seal around the lid of the fuel pump housing because the smell was coming from under the car and in the car. I also followed my fuel lines and saw some cracks forming so i replaced those and the gas cap for the heck of it. Only $20 for everything but make sure to pull the code first. It reslly makes things easier.

My 91 mitsubishi gto wont start and strong smell of fuel


Start by making sure you have spark to the spark plugs. If not you may have a problem with the plug wires or coil. It's also possible you're not getting gas to the engine possibly from a faulty fuel pump.
If you change the fuel pump be sure to replace the fuel filter also.

My fuel cutoff switch was going off two days ago and i could not get the car started.i let it sit for two days and went to go start and i was getting a strong gas odor from inside of the car it wasnt even...


if you have tried starting it for a while , this can give off a petrol smell because if the engine isnt firing then the bores are getting floaded , the fuel cut off switch should only switch off for a reason ,, EG head on bump , part from that the switch could be faulty. but when the car runs after a short while and still stinks of fuel i would advise to get it checked out asap .. matdav69
