If your smelling gas, you need check around the fuel railing to see if you smell gas and also check injector.. also remove the fuel rail pressure cap and use something to press down and see if it has pressure

2001 Chevy impala started the night before morning it started running rough died it would ed start fuel pump ok try starting it Nothing but smell gas what could be wrong?


if your smelling gas then it sounds like an ignition problem or timing, could be something in the distributor, coil, or plugs worn out. if this has the corvette motor in it with the distributor mounted at the front of the motor behind the water pump they are known for distributor problems.

Ran gas now starts then turns off and smells like burning rubber


Not sure I follow your story. If you really did run out of gas, you may have damaged the fuel pump in the tank. But it would not cause any smells.
Can you tell where the smell is coming from ?

I own a 93 toyota pick up,just replace the headgasket,after couple weeks of driving it,i nothice power loss,and alot of engiane knocking...and the started noticeing gas smell on my oil dip,and its very...


if its kknocking thats not a good sign thats usually a motor rebuild but if its a tap then it could be a lifter or something loose under the valve cover ive had the tapping noise and knocking happen to me tapping on a 67 chevy truck turns out it was the lifters then knocking in a 92 honda accord turns out it was a bent rod so it had to have the motor rebuilt as far as power loss it may have a clog in a fuel line or something shouldnt be the pump unless the vehicle doesnt start or it shuts off while driving, and the smell of gas on the oil dipstick im not to familiar with that but im positive that thats not good;
