It's possible that you have a fuel line or injector leaking on the engine. With the engine OFF take a look near the front center of the top of the engine by the fuel lines and injectors for any dampness or strong odors. I have seen a few leaks in this area and usually you'll catch a whiff of raw gas inside the vehicle as you sit in traffic or when you walk by the vehicle after shutting it off. Because of the risk of fire you should have this smell checked out as soon as possible.Good luck, hope this helps!

SMELLY EXAUST FUMES, NO EXAUST FUME COLOR


I am assuming that it smells like sulfur or rotten eggs. This is a bad tank of gas. Put a bottle of octane booster in the fuel tank and don't buy cheap gas again.

Code comes of for leak evac the shop ran smoke and could not find a leak I got a new gas cap, I don't smell gas help?


Make sure the computer has been reset since changing the cap. Autozone, etc. will scan for free.

The smoke test should have caught the problem provided the shop looked at the gas tank too. There can be a problem in the electric solenoid valving for the canister which can be concealing a leak beyond the solenoid valving. If the solenoid is closing off the flow, then it can also close off the leak.

As for smelling gas, its the fumes which flow in these hoses, not raw gas. If the Vacuum system draws the fumes in, or if the leak is rearward, there is less of a chance of smelling the fumes. Rushing air from driving will dissipate many fumes.

2011 town chrysler gas smell


I would check the gas cap to make sure the gasket is seating correctly on the filler neck. Also check, if you can, the filler neck from the gas cap down to the tank. If it is damaged, it could seep gas fumes. If you see no other signs of an obvious leak on the garage floor, it's likely a gasket issue in the fuel fill side of the system. It does not take much fumes to smell it strongly.

Turns over well but is slow to fire off sometime. Can smell gas fumes inside the car as well as the outside. No black smoke from ehaust and no fuel leaks.


if you smell gas YOU DO have a fuel leak.... make sure your gas cap is good and or tight, also might want to look at your fuel pressure regulator.. the fuel system is pretty simple... let me know!

Gas fumes inside and out side the car when it is hot outside


Try having the area that the hose was disconnected from steamed cleaned, or go to a car wash wash and spray the area. It might help, that is if you already haven't done so.

Unwanted fumes gas in ford falcon futura


is the car on recirculate or fresh air? air from your aircon comes through the bottom of your front windscreen, make sure its clear and free of leaves or anything that can cause blockage to stop it from become damp inside the aircon ducts. if it is definately petrol fumes you may have an exhaust leaking from your engine bay, releasing the fumes into your cabin, that is the most common reason for petrol fumes in your aircon.

Code 446 comes on and I smell gas


if that was the code for the purge vent solenoid i would say it is bad since you smell fumes. because that solenoid allows the vacuume from the engine while it is running to pull the excess fumes from the fuel tank and burn them off inside the engine. also might want to check lines under the hood associated with the solenoid to make sure excess air pressure from the fumes building up didn't blow a vac. line off. i would also check the condition of your fuel cap, if it doesn't seal good it could also cause a similar problem.
