2009 MALIBU smell gas from underneath the car?


is your purge canister working correctly or does it cause the fumes to stay in fuel tank and smell from the tank cap. Check when the car is off by removing the filler cap whether you have a pressure in tank. this might cause the smell,unless there is a small leak not noticeable somewhere.

Ive got an 1988 corvette sometimes it takes 3-7 tries to start whether cold or warm and other times it starts fine and has also stalled out while driving down road


Sounds like it could be a fuel pump or a fuel pressure regulator depending on the engine you have. Usually when it takes more than a second or two of turning it over before it will start means the fuel is going back down the line when not running. This can be because of a leak, not fuel leaking out but air leaking in, the fuel system or it can be as easy and a gas cap not properly venting/letting air into the tank as the tank empties. If it doesn"t let air in the tank, then the fuel that is being pumped out is creating a vaccum and sucking the fuel back into the tank when you shut the car off. Try opening the gas cap and letting some air get in just before you shut the car off. Then if it fires right up next time you know you need to replace the gas cap. If not check for vaccum leaks around the intake. Good luck.

P1456 code on a 1998 Honda Accord. Gas cap was checked out ok. Any other suggestions?


P1456 EVAP CONTROL SYSTEM LEAKAGE ( FUEL TANK SYSTEM)

There are a lot of potential leak points. The canister could be leaking, any number of the system hoses could leak. You could even have a leak in the fuel tank. Do you ever smell fresh gas?

Very bad gas fumes inside car and will stall.I took it and had the diagnostic ran on it and it came out it was the gas cap changed gas cap and did not fix the problem


Have you contacted the guys who told you to get a new gas cap? Was a new gas cap a recall? It was on mine. It might be just old gas smell still in car. Does the car still stall? On my car the dealer said there was not a hole in my old gas cap to relieve vaccume pressure, it was a factory recall, but I never did have any trouble with it.

My 1999 Ford Escort LX has a problem with the clutch. It is a hydraulic clutch and a manual transmission. I need a diagram to show where the drain and filler plugs are in the transmission so that I can...


When you remove your gas cap do you have alot of pressure releasing out of you gas cap? Also do you smell it more while your running the a/c or do you smell it as if it where in the car? You might want to see if the fuel pump gasket was replaced when you had the new gas tank installed or possibly check under the hood for injectors or the pressure regulator. Please let me know if there is anything else I can help with.

Possible vacumn line leak in line to gas tank. where is the line?


The line runs from the purge canister to the fuel tank along the frame, what makes you think you have a leak? any kind of a vaccum leak would make the idle go up in rpm,s or the hvac with blower on would go from where ever you set it to defrost (default setting with no vaccum) if you are just getting a check engine light of small evap leak 99% of the time it the gas cap o-ring worn or cap not tight.

What does diagnostic code PO455


A code p0455 most likely means one or more of the following has happened:
  • A loose or improperly affixed gas cap
  • A non-conforming gas cap (i.e. not factory/original brand)
  • Other leak or damaged piece in EVAP system

With a p0455, the most common repair is to:
  • Remove and reinstall the gas cap, clear the codes, and drive for a day and see if the codes come back.
  • Otherwise, replace the gas cap, and/or
  • Inspect the EVAP system for cuts/holes in tubes/hoses (you may hear a vacuum noise or smell fuel), repair if necessary.

1990 VW Cabriolet Gas Smell and humming from gas cap...The smell and sound happens more frequently on warm/hot days. Gas cap seal has been replaced, but still having problems.


The humming noise is coming from the fuel pump.  Its possible its getting ready to fail.  These start making noise when they are going bad.  The smell can be coming from bad gas cap not sealing up fuel tank properly and or a fuel pump/sending unit seal.  You can pull the back seat bottom out easy enough by removing 2 5mm alan screws that secure it to the floor.  Remove the seat bottom buy pulling out and remove black cover under seat bottom that has 3 philips screws.  you may smell fuel more promanently here.
