396 rebuilt motor in 2010 engine starts right away and then when engine gets hot it stalls what causes this have to wait till cooled down before restarting

Sounds like vapor-lock. Fuel line is too close to something hot, and the fuel is vaporizing, causing no fuel to carb. Move fuel line, insulate it, or get stronger fuel pump. Replace fuel filter, too. Possibly move fuel filter.

1989 Bronco II smells like gasoline after I drive it. Any idea what is causing that?

If this vehicle has fuel injection which i think it could as cars in europe were fitted with cats from 92 but this is a 89 --but its american and if built to conform with californian regs then it could have a cat and fuel injection .if so check the O2 sensors as one of these faulty will allow the engine to overfuel .in all honesty i would need my head in the engine to know exactly whats wrong

Lx 4 cyl carbuerated

Could be a vapor-lock problem where the gas in the carb is boiling out.
You could try carb cleaner sprayed into the air cleaner to verify.
Could also be the fuel pump relay if equipped.

Drain the fuel out, and put fresh fuel in. Prime the engine with some fresh fuel, and try to strt it. the fuel we get now has no chemical savers in it like it use to. Gas will turn into turpentine after a year or so of setting.

When I park my 2000 acura tl it has a strong odor of gasoline in the garage. it is hard to start and the fuel economy has gotten bad.

more than likely cause for this is a gas leak more than likely one the metal lines under the car has gotten rusty and started to leak
another possibility is a injector is leaking or pressure regulator is bad and it dumping to much fuel into motor but this will usually trigger a engine light (code would be a o2 sensor or bank 1 to rich or bank 2 to rich) also might also have black smoke coming out exhaust
So if u dont have any engine codes more than likely cause is a fuel line leaking

Gas odor when at stops sign or parking in garage

I recently had the same problem. It turned out that the fuel regulator on the engine at the left side just above the intake manifold had an intermitent leak. The gas leaking was not always visible so I had the regulator changed and that solved the problem.
