Jingling sound from front of engine


Don't worry about the sound, Find the gas leak. Fuel lines come in on the drivers side. Then you have the injectors. on the fuel rail. on the fuel rail there is a pressure regulator. All this needs checked. Fuel lines on the engine are metal. BUT coming up to the metal lines, they are plastic. LOOK for wet spots.. FIX them. The regulator is on the fuel rail/ with the injectors. LOOK for wet spot at these locations also... There are also other locations under the car to find gas leaks....Fix this first...

Gas leak in engine compartment.


Without looking at it, If there is raw fuel anywhere up top this is what i would do:
1. check rubber fuel lines on the intake. easy fix if leaking
2. check or replace the fuel injector o-rings they are $3.00 per set easy fix.
3. check cold start injector for fuel leak also easy fix

If no fuel leaks can be found in lines i would go straight for the injector seals but in noway would i let this stop me from buying the car if thats all thats wrong. even if an injector is cracked it is under $80.00 fix. here is a link showing the injector and o-ring position http://www.oreillyauto.com/site/c/search/Fuel+Injector/02521/C0024.oap?model=Legacy&vi=1269996&year=1997&make=Subaru

1996 civic smell gas all the time ,when driving,when parked,and never see any leaks.


You have to check for leaks under the car. Look at the gas tank, usually they leak but wont make it to the ground. If you see that the tank has any wet spots coming from the top around to the bottom, then the leak is at the sending unit. Follow the fuel lines up to the engine, looking for wet spots. Under the hood, find the fuel filter check this for wet spots, then check all the injectors, these can leak at the top or bottom, usually top. Best way to tell is start the car and then check the injectors. If they are leaking it could be a drip or spray.

Instructions
  1. Raise the hood of the Kia Shortage view the interior. From front to back you will see the grill, the radiator, the radiator fans, and the engine. On the top of the engine is the valve cover---an aluminum cover that encloses the top of the engine---that is bolted in place.
  2. Look behind the valve cover for an aluminum rail that goes across the back of the engine. Inserted at equal distances---both below and into the rail---are tubular injectors that are also inserted into the engine. The aluminum rail is called the fuel rail. It is a hollow tube that holds the tops of the injectors and supplies them with fuel. Each of the injectors are also plugged into the engine wiring harness.
  3. Inspect the injectors for any signs of fuel leaks. Although rare, leaks do occur, especially due to age and mileage. If leaking, do not drive the car as there is an increased risk of fire. Repair the injector seals before driving the car again.

On a 1996 Ford Crown Vic 4.6L interceptor motor I can smell a heavy odor of fuel from under the hood and around the outside of the car. The car runs great and I cannot find a fuel leak anywhere. Do you...


If you overfill the fuel tank, fuel can travel down the lines to the charcoal cannister located under the hood. This unit can become so saturated that instead of being purged and cleared by the engine, the vapour hangs around and can be smelled for days. It can become so soggy it drips on the ground and therefore dangerous. then it must be replaced. This is an expensive exercise.
