Question about Air Intake & Fuel Delivery for Honda Pilot

1 Answer

I smell gas when the weather is cold

When the weather is cold I get a gas smell inside the car. Does not happen in warm weather. When I first start the car it is usually fine. Then I drive a little ways(0.5 or 1 mile) and stop at a stoplight and I get the gas smell. I open the hood and can smell the gas so it's not from the tank or a leak in the line. I had a mechanic look at the injector seals last winter and they said they were all good.

    There is a square copper part that the fuel regulator fits into. There is a hose coming out the front with a factory crimped on connector. This connection was leaking a few drops of fuel in cold weather.

Winter (or rather cold weather) can cause fuel leaks, You should go over the fuel system and check all connections and clamps to be properly fitted and secured. Some vehicles are worse about this than others. I have an older Nissan, and there's a saying when it gets closer to Christmas- Tis the season for fuel leaks! Check your hoses.

Why tracker transmission lock in cold weather?


You have valves inside the transmission and electronic controls inside the transmission. When cold, valves do not work because the fluid is too thick. Once warm the fluid thins out and allows tranny to shift OK. You can burn your tranny up by not letting it warm up.

1997 Villager gas smell when outside temperatures are hot and vehicle has been driven.


A common problem with Nissan products, which this van is a Nissan Quest with Mercury trim.
There are several small rubber fuel hoses around the intake. When the air temp is cold these hoses can leak and then stop leaking when the air temp warms up.
When the air temp is cold, look around the intake with the engine running and you should see one of the hoses wet with fuel.
Just tighten the clamp.

Gas would leak out of a cold, hard, rubber fuel line. When the car warms up, the rubber line swells and seals itself up until it gets cold and leaks`again. Find that leaky fuel line asap or you're risking an engine compartment fire every time your car is started, when it's cold out.
