Check for leaks, service engine lights since CTS (Coolant temp sensor) can cause the vehicle to run rich. Keep in mind that there is a lot of Ethenol in our gas that is lowing the gas mileage on our vehicles.The canister purge tank can cause gas smell if it isn't working right, but the computer should give you a service engine light on any of these.

I have got misfire in many cylinder,i have got code p0302,p0304,p0305,burn alot of fuel, smell gasoline in side,engine start loudly,


I would start with a tune-up: new plugs and wires, new distributor cap/rotor button, new air filter, maybe a new fuel filter. If you get gas at the same location all the time, try a different one for a while too.
These would be the easiest to do first to eliminate some common issues.

Burning much gas


have your o2 sensor checked. if your sensor goes bad it will tell cpu that your not getting fuel and it will continue to dump fuel to injectors or throttlebody

Strong gas smell inside of car


is there a leak in your fuel line, or possibly your fuel filter, if you see raw gas leaking, then it is dangerous for you tio continue to drive it, it only takes one spark to ignite it, however, if the smell is just your car burning rich and the exhaust has holes in it, it will smell up the inside of your car. And yes if your carb. is burning too rich then it needs adjusted. Wasting your fuel, and overloading your engine. I hope some of this was helpfull.

My air conditioner on my 1999 kia sportage smell like smoking and like burning went turn on


do you turn on fan when using a/c ! if so heres a few causes-- burning smell in car, blower motor is going bad, or resistor is burning up.the resistor controls the fan speeds. good-day !


The burning smell could be due to gas leakage in the engine compartment. The gas smell is being sucked into the fresh air intake of the air conditioner. It can be avoided by checking either fuel pressure regulator or fuel injector.

My car is smelling like gas.


From where? you haven't given enough info, but put a large piece of flattened cardboard under the car to see if any is leaking. You will then be able to see what general area it's coming from--if there is a leak.

It could be a fuel injector(s) or even something very simple. When is the last time you had a tune-up, including a new fuel filter? If it's been more than two years, it's overdue. That means new oil, oil filter, air filter, fuel filter, and spark plugs.If your car has a distributor, you should also replace the distributor cap and rotor (cap).

Try to locate a specific area where the smell is coming from. Breathing gas fumes is not healthy!

My truck starts then stalls looking at the fuel injectors its like its getting to much gas then it stalls out i took out a spark plug after it stalled and its black and white smoke came out its burning to...


The white smoke bothers me the most. I see you did alot of fuel stuff. Did you do a fuel sample? Does the exhaust smell sweet like you are burning antifreeze?

If you try a TPS (throttle position sensor) it controls the spark and fuel. Since it has such a broad range of operation it may not send a Code unless it is burned out. I am unsure what engine you have, but a Mass Airflow sensor can mess up the fuel ratios. Good luck on this repair.

Fuel system.....all of a sudden nothing , won't start. not getting fuel. Fuel pump is making noise....will start, then stalls, no smell of fuel. Holding gas pedal down, nothing, no smell of fuel.....fuel...


I once worked on a Buick that did this. Try spraying starting fluild in the throttle body. If it starts and runs until it burns the fluid off, replace the fuel filter. If it still doesn't run after this, remove the ignition control module (found under the coil where all your spark plug wires come from, or under the cover on the 4-cylinder model) and have it tested at Auto Zone. If the 'lamp' circuit in the module doesn't work, the fuel injectors won't fire. The PCM uses the reference signal from this module to pulse the fuel injectors in the correct order.

1996 audi vacuum hose problems,burning gas alot i


mcdevito75 here, Vacumn lines broke or disconnected will truely effect gas mileage even with the best tune up, Leaking fuel injectors also, a leak in your fuel system also, you can usually smell the gas, also a crack in the intake manifold or loose bolts on the intake manifold will create bad gas mileage, have your repair shop check all these items for you.

If the smoke is blue it is burning oil. If this is a 3.0 liter engine this is common as the valve guides have dropped which allows oil to draw down the valves stems into the cylinders. If your smelling raw gasoline park it as it may be a fuel leak. If the smike is white your burning antifreeze; this may even have a sweet odor to it. If this is the case you have big engine troubles, bad head hasket, cracked head or ???
I hope this may have helped,
