Question about 2007 Chevrolet Equinox LS New Cars

2 Answers

I have a 2007 Chevy Equinox that has a gas smell noticeable once it is driven. No leak evidence and it has been suggested I check the "gas filler tube vents". Is this a possibility?

Also check your fuel pressure regulator, the fuel rail to fuel line connection end the injectors themselves for signs of leaking. The fuel pressure regulator has a vacuum line connected to the top of it. Make sure this is secure. If the fuel pressure regulator has failed it will allow fuel to enter the vacuum line and this will cause the smell of fuel under the hood. Also make sure that the emission control pipe from the fuel vapour canister has not become disconnected from the intake plenum.

    Just had same problem with my 07 equinox. Plastic fuel feed line that attach to fuel pump module was leaking. Had to replace fuel pump. Hard to see leak because it would run down side of tank and drip onto plastic shield and pool between tank and shield. Never did drip on driveway. Luckily under drive train warranty.

    We are having the same problem with our 07 equinox. It is in the shop now. They are saying either the fuel pump or the gas tank and it will not be covered under warranty. We bought the car used. Any suggestions?

    Depending on your vehicle's in service date and mileage your pump might fall under the 5yr/100k drivetrain warranty. The tank probably wouldn't be covered. Otherwise the pump is pretty expensive to repair on that one.

    I am having that same problem with my 2007 equinox, I did talk to a chevy tech and found that the problem is near the gas tank. There is some kind of cansiter that is near the fuel tank that sends the vapor back to the engine. There are plastic hoses that connect this item to the engine. He said that they can come loose are break and will cause that fuel smell. SO check that area if you can get to it.

I had a 1990 Cadillac Deville with a leaky fill tube that smells like gas after I would add gas, and other times, too.

I had the filler tube replaced because it was rusty.

You have a leak somewhere, and I would check the gas cap and the filler tube.

Your car seems like it is kind of new to be experiencing a rust problem, though.

But, maybe there's a loose clamp somewhere or something to this effect.

Good luck on the repair.

The tank's filler tube may be leaking either at a hose clamp connection or metal tube rusted away and has holes.

That's what hapened to my 1990 Cadillac Deville, anyway. Had to replace the filler neck.
