It has to be leaking somewhere. You had better check under the hood and under the car ASAP. Or get someone to check it for you.

Runs ******


if it smells like raw, unburned fuel, you may have an injector stuck open. i assume it clears up and drive good after a short warm up. there will be evidence of which cylinder has the bad injector by pulling out the spark plugs. the affected cylinder will be washed clean and smell like unburned fuel. the plug may also be "wet black" and of course smell like raw fuel.

I have a 97 mercury cougar 4.6L V8... the other day on the hey the car started loosing power and was runnin real sluggish... then started smellin rotten eggs... I replaced the cat converter last year......


Sure sounds like the same condition all over again...but it's only a year old or less...is the car in good tune, gas mileage is good? Is it possible you got a poor quality converter to go bad so fast?
Normally, I would hesitate to offer this test, because I know how hard it is to remove exhaust pieces with rusted, corroded, hard set bolts and fasteners. But since it's a new cat, you could try and disconnect the exhaust before the converter, and run the engine to see if that was the problem.
Good luck. Hope you get it fixed.

LouNissan Altima My nissan run real rough and it acts like it is not getting gas and when it does start to run I smell raw gas what can be the problem


Check the fuel lines in the engine compartment - look for leaks - also check the fuel line from the fuel filter - most commonly located on the driver rear side, just behind tire. Also, consider replacing the fuel filter.
Please let me know if you need further assistance.

My car has a strong gas smell on the right side of my car. We jacked it up and noticed it was wet underneath the car. My gas miles have been good & it doesnt look like im loosing any gas quick it just...


don't know year make model but if you can smell gas and you see wetness underneath you should have it checked out. a small leak even though your not loosing much gas can be deadly especially if vehicle is in a garage or closed area cause the gas vapor is more of a problem than raw gas. there are lots of places that the leak could be coming from tank, lines, filter, evap system or the charcoal canister. much better to be safe than sorry, no need to have a major problem (possibly life threatening) develop over something that may be able to be fixed before hand.

2005 amante V6 started running rough, smell of raw gas, chk eng light on white smoke smelling of raw gas. changed plugs , wires, ran injecter cleaner through, gets about 1 mile per dollar of gas ....


Run a compression test. Sounds like a bad head gasket, letting coolant into the cylinder and causing misfire. I think you will find one (or two adjacent) cylinders have much lower compression than the others. There should not be more than 20% difference from highest to lowest.
