It sounds like a pipe leaking common place is pipe feed to the engine that runs under the car , it wont leak while car is running as the gas is being pumped around and not sat still in the pipe id check your full feed pipe to the engine for any splits .

I have a gas smell in rear on ford taurus sometimes


first after your car has been sitting over night move it then look at the driveway where it had been sitting if you see fresh fuel then look under the rear of the car to see if you see any fuel dripping,if you do get your car somewhere to get a mechanic look at as soon as possible..

2002 ford taurus smell gas when the outside temperature is over 80 degrees


Fuel tanks have a vent tube and a charcoal cannister to capture the gas fumes from the tank. It's possible there is a cracked or loose hose, faulty fuel cap, bad canister or a fuel leak and any one of many connections. Investigate for sign of raw fuel along the underside of te vehicle, and in the engine compartment. Attempt to follow the smell to isolate the location of a leak.

Hummer 2006 smell gas but nothing drip


usually the top of the fuel tank is rotted out from wet mud sitting on it. The fuel sloshes and soaks the mud via the perforations in the tank.

I recently had the electrical system repaired. since then I have experienced a strong smell of gasoline when the car is running and when it is just sitting in the driveway. There does not appear to be...


there is no connection to these two issues that would make any sense-the strong gas smell can be due to over filling the gas tank, it can and often does back up into the charcoal canister that is supposed to only contain vapor. when you fill the tank, it is best to allow the automatic shutoff feature of the gas pump to activate ending the filling process. the tendency to 'top off' can cause the symptoms you are describiing

1994 Mercury Cougar 4.6, hard start, miss, gas smell


This is an idea not a for sure. Bad or worn valves can cause what you describe. Had something similar happen to an 2004 Toyota. Due to bad lubrication, crazy huh?

My 1991 Toyota Previa has been sitting and now won't start.


You need to check a couple of things. If your car has been sitting, then it could be any of a number of problems. Check to make sure that you have the three things your car needs to run. 1. Air- is the air filter clean with no blockages like mouse nests on the intake side and also in the exhaust pipe!! 2. Fuel- Do you hear the fuel pump kick on for 2 seconds when you first turn the ignition to the run positon? If not, your fuel pump could be suspect. 3. Spark- If you have air and fuel, but no spark, then your ignition system is under investigation. Be methodical you need all 3 of these things for the car to run, without any one them your stuck!
Hope this helps you out!! Try running the car on propane, if it runs beautifully, then you know it's a fuel delivery problem.

Smells like gasoline in car when it's in idol


Check entire fuel system for leaks 99% of time wen you smell GAS.... there is a leak. So be very careful. Gasoline leaks can be very dangerous. If you had a tune up lately or changed a fuel filter that can be your problem because they are metal line then can be left loose accidentally. Check all fuel lines from fuel thank towards the engine compartment and you should be able to locate source of the smell. Good Luck and contact if you need more help. Thanks for using FIX YA
