Fix the smell first, as you are a fire/explosion hazard. Look for wet spots, but something, somewhere is leaking. Inspect the evaporative recovery system and all hoses. When this is resolved, look after the rough running on acceleration.

There's a gas smell inside the car.


Check your muffler for holes. The gases can enter the passengers cabin and it can smell like gas, specially if your car isn't burning gasoline completely due to bad tuning.

1995 nissan maxima. When starting the car I have to count to 3 then it turns over and makes a screeching noise for 1 or 2 min (especially when it's cold). The last time i was at the shop they said it may...


the screeching noise may be your belts beeing loose or cracked and dry. the fact that the check engine light is on and the car smells like gas may mean that you are not firing on all 6 cylinders and thats why it shakes and also you are just dumping the fuel into the cylined but its not getting burned. you may need plugs or maybe a coil. you need to find out what is the code number and start from there.

My car has poor acceleration and it shakes when stop also smells


Sounds like you're missing on a cylinder or two. Tune it up, first. That might very well fix your problem. Tell the part store guy you need a COMPLETE tune up kit and replace everything that he gives you parts for. Not just plugs and wires, although they would be better than nothing. I'm pretty sure this will fix you up. The symptoms you're describing are classic for a tune up.

When I start my car there is gas smell and it has poor acceleration. The acceleration gets better as the car warms up... The car also idles rough.I recently had an oil change I also changed the spark plugs...


the gas smell makes me think EGRS (Exhaust Gas Recirculation System) check all your Vacuum hoses, start at your charcoal canister and work backwards.

A vacuum problem explains your conditions at least...
