Maybe a sticking float. run a 1/4 can of Seafoam from autozone to two gallons gas. ride bike for at least 10 miles and get on it a little... this might fix your problem.

Why is there a gas smell?

It may be fuel evaporation. If it is coming from the tank or the engine the high temperature outside and from a working engine may be evaporationf the fuel befor it can be used. You will smell it at idle, or when stationary because the vehiccle is not moving and is surrounded by the atomised fuel, when your vehicle is moving it will be dispursed by your passage through air.
If you are unhappy have it checked ... ust in case

Why would I get a gas fumes smell when car is sitting idle or just been shut off. Cannot find any leaks in gas tank or lines

gas is a very high evaporative liquid..fumes extremely strong..if overfull it will smell..and if emissions equipment has issues it will smell also.. when the engine gets hot, any gas present will vent off until the engine cools..thats the fuels evaporative nature..still keep an eye out for issues..

Lack of power,idles high,oil smells like gas,shifts funnymakes some type of pop,engine temp increases at stop

The oil smells like gas so most likely you have a bad head gasket. That will cause they car to overheat at stops and that will cause a funny smell. If it is blowing smoke that smells sweat then most likely it is your head gasket.

I have a kenmore elite slide in range. we notice the smell of gas


There could be a couple things that would cause your symptoms, I will do my best to try and explain each one.

First off I am assuming from your dialog that everything is cooking the same on the top and in the oven, the times are the same the flames on the top burners look or sound no different. If this is the case the repair outside would not have a direct bearing on a 'problem' but it could cause the odor. Here is why...

Natural gas has no odor a chemical called Mercaptan is added to the gas to make a leak easier to detect. The amount of Mercaptan is regulated closely so it all is consumed in the flame. If there is too much you will get an odor from the flame.

The Mercaptan can line the inside of the piping that feeds gas from the regulator to the range. Working on the pipes can break loose some residue that may have a stronger presence of odorant causing you to smell it for some time. It will eventually go away.

The second thing that could cause this odor is if you have done any remodeling in the home, paint fumes, stains, oils many other chemicals can mix with the gas and cause this Mercaptan to not be burned up all the way and create an odor.

I hope this helps

Very high idle using up to much gas can smell gas

it could be your throttle position sensor. it will be on the intake where your throttle body is located.
