Check and make sure, that your fuel pressure regulator is not leaking, regulator sit on the fuel injector rail, will be a small valve with a vacuum hose on it, check it for leaking or gas stains around it.

Cranks won't start

smelling gas like you are is a bad thing, engine must turn over to fire injector. sounds like flooding ( possible ECM/power computer bad ). Before condemning the computer pull all spark plugs, disable ignition coils, then try cranking to see if engine will turn over. Be carful if hydro locked gas will be pushed out the spark plug hole/s

Turns over like it is out of gas, won't start

Check fuel pump. Turn on the ignition an lesen for the pump to prime the fuel line. Fuel/Fire/Air the three elements required for combustion. You would usually smell raw gas fumes coming from the tailpipe when you crank the engine if you fuel delivery is working. A quick check to determine if you have a fuel problem: Remove the air filter and gain access to the throttle body, open the throttle plate and spray some starter fluid in the chamber. If the car starts for a moment, you probably have a fuel problem. Check for spark.

My guess would be the crankshaft position sensor. You need to have the computer scanned for trouble codes to find out what's going on.You can start replacing parts, but it could get expensive before you hit the right one.

Gas Smell when heater turned on

When the heater is turned on, it is drawing in air from the cowl at the bottom of the windshield outside the car. If your smelling gas when you turn it on, it would suggest to me that there may be a fuel leak under the hood. A lot of Honda's have the fuel filter under the hood against the firewall. Open the hood, and see if the gas smell is any stronger, or any gas smell at all for that matter. I would strongly recommend getting the car checked as soon as possible, if you can find the source of the smell yourself.

Car will not start bu,t will turn over can smell gas and ,it want to start more if the pedel is to the floor

sounds like its not firing right possible its your coil pack when you smell gas that means its flooded you might as well wait a while when you smell gas like that before you turn it over more but it could also be one more thing it could be you have a gas leak and its not getting enough gas but thats a slim chance

Gas smell

Well it sounds like a problem ....either there is a hole in gastank or a hole in the gas line somewhere ....if it smells after you start then it it is probly in the line coming from the tank....if you park on a clean driveway or somthing ...start the car and let it run for a bit and then either look under to see if it is dripping somewhere , or move the car and see ,then you can tell about where it is leaking ...would get it fixed soon , if it gets bigger then the car won't start if it doesn't get enough gas .
Hope this helps
