Hi there,

I don't mean to be a smart a$$, but maybe expanding upon why you consider this to be an issue would help get your concerns resolved.

Is there gas pooling under the vehicle?

Any recent events, etc.

In fact, you would have a better response reposting so you get re-viewed. Remember, as much detail as possible.

Best regards

Mike

smell gas in the cabin Kenny, Fuel line is probably leaking, would have checked immediately by a qualified tech. This could be extremely dangerous if fuel is spraying/leaking on hot surface such as exhaust.

WARE IS MY GAS GOING ?


The Gas Gauge---worn out sending unit in fuel tank

Check the fuel hose going to the pump on the
side of motor for leaks

Also check for a leaking fuel pump gasket, between
pump halves

Nothing seeping under the hood,have to look around
the tank area where hoses leave the fuel,return & evap
system hard lines

Check all Emission Hoses on canister under hood & around
intake

Car intermittently has strong gas smell. No gas is visible on or around motor or at fuel pressure regulator. Nothing seems to set it off (Eg. full tank or low tank). No gas residue on garage floor. Gas...


things that you need to look for (if you are capable):

1-do you regularly overfill your gastank to the brim? If so, these are the fumes from that overflowed to the EVAP charcoal canister.

2-check to see if there's any overall fuel line/hose deterioriation.

3-check to see if you have fuel leak from your pressurised fuel rail.
4-check the vacuum(some of them are now electromechanical) EVAP solenoid.

I cant fill up gas tank


normally the pump stops the nozzle from pumping gas,your gas tank is full. bypassing this safety feature is not reccomended as the tank will become over pressurized and eventually you will smell gas around your vechicule due to a blown seal between the tank and filler neck.

Fuel smell in 2005 , f-150 just when I stop at a stop light, cannot smell when driving. Very heavy fuel smell.


If it is fuel injected, I would inspect the injection system. I had an injector that was leaking an puddling gas on the valve cover area. If not that, then generally check around for a leak in the fuel system / tank.

2000 ford windstar gas smell on the inside only no gas leaks already changed the fuel filter the pcv valve is fine as well .where is the smell coming from? and why is it only on the inside and u can't...


Check and see if you have any gas on the ground after you park your car. Check around the gas tank and gas cap. It's possible that the fuel pump (which is in the gas tank) has hoses that may be leaking. If this is a slight leak, it might only manifest itself via a gas odor into the trunk or passenger compartment. It might be a good idea to put the car on a hoist and follow the fuel lines from the engine to the fuel tank. There should a one line that takes the fuel from the fuel tank to the engine and another that brings back the excess. There should also be another line coming out of the fuel tank that is for venting. Unfortunately, the fuel pump and hose connections are not easily accessible and require either removing the gas tank or cutting a hole in the trunk to access it. You should definitely take care of this soon as leaks don't get better, only worse and it is a potential fire hazard. Good luck!

99 dodge dakota has gas smell in cab when heater or ac is on


sounds like you need to look through the engine bay and see if your fuel lines are wet anywhere!! There might be a possibilty that you have a leak around the gas tank so jus crawl under the trunk and look to see if it has any kind of wetness around the tank or hoses coming out of the tank!!
