My car smells like gas when I turn the engine off. The smell is NOT in my car but smells up the garage


Possible leaky fuel injector/regulator/fuel line. Possible disconnected/loose fuel purge/vent line. Possible leaky fuel filler tube or fuel tank. You will need to have the fuel system/lines inspected to determine source of smell. Not something I would put off as a major leak could develop and spill fuel on hot engine/exhaust causing fire

My truck got hot yesterday cause of a blown heater hose and it won,t start today , i,ve got fire and i can smell fuel , but it won,t start


The first question I would ask, Is it turning over? If not, pull the plugs, and see if there is water in the cylinders. Water won't compress. Second question, if it is turning over, pull a couple of plugs and see if you find any water. Because you may have blown a head gasket. If you have, make sure you send the head to get it checked for cracks before reassembly. Good luck!! DD

Engine won't fire. Starter turns over, but, won't run


Hi Anonymous, when checking for spark the CKP needs to measure the compression bump in order to send the correct signal to the ICM/ECM so always check for spark with either a third plug grounded or lift the end of the plug boot 1/2 " off one of spark plugs that are in the head. and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty
2. Fuel supply valve turned off.
3. Fouled spark plugs.
4. Engine flooded with gasoline as a result of over use of enrichner.
5. Fuel valve or filter clogged.
6. Vacuum hose to automatic fuel supply valve disconnected, leaking, or pinched.
7. Discharged battery, loose or broken battery connections especially the "GROUND" cable to the frame.
8. Loose wire connection at coil, battery or plug between ignition sensor and module.
9. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting, spark plug cable connections loose,
or cables connected to wrong cylinders.
10. Ignition timing incorrect due to faulty ignition coil, ignition module, or sensors " Manifold Absolute Pressure" "Camshaft Position Sensor" "Crank Position Sensor" "Brake Apply Sensor
11. Engine lubricant to heavy ( winter operation )
12. Sticking or damaged valves or push rod wrong length.
13. Primary cam sproket spline sheared or missing spacer.
14. Security alarm system not disarming.
For a primary suspect please visit the website below. Good luck and have nice day.

John Deere LA145...it will fire up and immediately die and then won't start again. What should I do?


Usually this symptom means a clogged filter, gas tank outlet tube is plugged or a clogged needle valve. But if it smells gassy it is probably not starving, but may be running too rich. If it does not smell gassy then it's probably a fuel delivery problem. Sometime rubber fuel hoses can swell up inside and restrict flow.

2000 nissan maxima won't fire when trying to start. it turns over but won't fire. it started once and ran but won't start again


sounds like it might be flooded. Try and remove the fuel pump fuse from the fuse block that is just in front of your left knee. While it is out crank the car and see if it wants to start and hold down the gas pedal all the way and then relase it and back and forth and once you get it to run have the fuse ready in your hand and in front of the spot to install it. and then keep the rpm's up with the gas pedal until the smoke clears out behind the car.

I have a 2001 Chevy Malibu 3.1 Liter. I was driving it last night, and I parked it, everything was fine. 15 minutes later I had to go somewhere, went to fire her up, and it wouldn't start. It's...


Assuming there's enough fuel in the tank - If the fuel filter is extremely clogged - try starting with the fuel cap off so it won't have work against the vacuum in the fuel tank. Fuel caps have breather holes which can be clogged also. The holes release the vacuum in the tank slowly. If it starts ok then, the problem sits in fuel supply - for example the fuel filter.

Smell the exhaust pipe - if it smells strongly like petrol, most likely it's the ignition system requiring service. (sparkplugs, distributer, sparklines)
