I believe the full dress HD's have a phenomenom of gas fumes from the end of the mufflers get sucked back into the area behind the fairing where the driver is. My theory is that there is a slight low pressure area there that causes the issue. I have noticed this on my HD in certain conditions as well, not all the time, just once in a while.

My 2003 mercury marauder 4.6 I've changed spark plugs, coils, and fuel injectors, crank sensor, timing sensor and my car when starts their is a lot of white smoke when I touch the gas also gas is coming...

Running way rich (to much fuel) Have you had the MAF sensor checked? I would also check to see if the fuel pressure regulator is operating correctly, if it's "stuck" then your pressure is way to high and that would also lead to running rich. Is the return line from the fuel rail to the gas tank open? If that's blocked/ kinked or otherwise restricting fuel flow that could give you a to rich running condition. Don't forget about the o2 sensors, but sounds like your not even getting into closed loop yet. post more details if you can

Car Fuel Smell

You rubbed through the fuel tank or cracked it and it has a small leak. They make a fuel tank repair kit you can by a a auto parts store some times they work and sometimes they don't. If gas is spraying or leaking on the exhaust you could have a fire. I have drained a tank and put a screw with a fiber washer in the hole and then covered it with a 1/2 inch if silicone rubber it lasted for 5 years. Your fuel lines and filter are usually up on the side of the frame and should be ok

Hi Guru, I have a 1993 Volvo 240 with 134K miles on it. The engine runs erratic at times. I changed the fuel pump relay, new fuel pump and filter and fuel pressure regulator and I also remove the MAF...

there is a fuel injection canister that will get carbon build up and will cause this. its an easy and inexpensive fix, about 20 minutes, hardly any hardware dismantlilng..and some carb cleaner.

Runs great but will quit running , smell gas also

Sound like a rich by a long way; are you check if have smoke in exhaust? Black smoke is fuel, blue smoke is oil.

Also, your injectors are to big and is running rich.

I have a 2002 Chevy Cavalier with 95,000 miles. Due to me being in the Marine Corps, I haven't been able to drive it much in the last 3 years thanks to deployments. But one day i started it up and it...

If you have had the same gas in there the whole time it has gone bad fuel goes bad pretty quickly when you get deployed you should add fuel satbilizer or have sombody start it for you.

Running rich after warm up.

These vans are now very old, and the gas lines need to be replaced!!! I can't warn you enough, if you smell gas, change the lines. There have been many vanagon fires due to fuel line failure. Replacment kits can be found on-line, it isn't hard to do. The other issues can be related to the fuel tank itself, the seals on top go bad and need to be replace. You know if you have this problem when you fill it to the top and gas leaks.

But, if you haven't changed your fuel lines... do it right away.

Also, go to and look up fuel line and fire... you will see lots of posts!

I've owned my 84 Westy since 87 and changed the lines 5 years ago, many were cracked and leaking. I count my blessings that I didn't have a fire.

98 jeep grand cherokee black smoke

Either your too rich and gas is getting by the piston rings going into the crankcase(oil pan)or you have a defective fuel pump (even if it is new!!)IT'S one or the other!!Running the car very rich for a period of time will have fuel in the oil!! I run mind rich for the nos and smell gas in the oil when draining it and only have a few passes on the motor with the nitrous,but runs extremely rich at idle because the timing is backed way down and running a colder plug causes a rich condition!! Plugs will foul quickly also!!
