You might have a leaking fuel injector, which is dumping fuel into it's respective engine cylinder, which then leaks down into the crankcase where the engine oil is. Then, as you drive, the gas is evaporating and getting into the car through the vents. It's a very serious, possibly explosive problem anytime you have excessive gas in your engine oil. Have it looked at and repaired immediately.

Burning smell inside car. Not under hood. What could it be?


I had the same problem with my 2005 Honda Accord. I would happen only sometime but is a distant odor I smell from inside the cabin. Older Hondas sometimes have gasket problems that leak small amounts of oil onto the exhaust manifold. Ask the mechanic to go check the valve cover gaskets. They replaced a new gasket to my car at the Honda dealer and I haven't smelled that burning odor since then. Good luck.

Faint odor of gas when i start my 93 boneville


It could be flooded with fuel. You could try pulling the fuel pump relay and cranking the engine to clear it out. A mechanic would check for spark at the plugs and also see if the plugs are fuel fouled.
Usually if the oil pressure light comes on the engine will eventually die because the fuel pump stops getting voltage.

When i drive after some time is getting bad smaile


Bad smells can come from a variety of heated item in a car.

The key word is HEATED. After you drive, and you smell the bad odor, park the car (engine running) and walk around the car smelling and sensing (not touching) for heated areas.

Lift the hood, and see if there are anythings that look out of the ordinary. The engine will be hot, but there are hoses and wires all over the engine compartment. look carefully to see if you have any wisps of smoke anywhere.

Melted wires or hoses. If you just filled the oil, you could be smelling oil burning off the block. This applies to any fluids.

good luck and don't forget to vote!!!

Smell of gas while driving


If you smell gas while driving, check for leaks first.
Look under the chassis near the gas filler neck. Check under the hood for raw gas odor around the engine. If your hoses are not leaking, your car may need a tuneup. It could be burning too rich.

Gas odor coming through the vent when heat is on


Did you check for any gas leaks ? Check for gas leaks all over the engine. This is not supposed to happen. There is no way that the gas could get into the cooling system. The odor has to be coming from a leak or maybe the carburator (if equipped) flooded. If the odor goes away. , it may have just been too much gas to the fuel system.
