I think we're missing a lot of info. or it's posted wrong! Is it because it will not run? What else is it exhibiting for a problem? I'm assuming you may have a Kohler motor in it, is the fuel tank level dropping in it while it's sitting? Get back to us with what caused you to tell us Spark Plug smells like gas.

My 1985 Olds Cutlass won't start and a get a strong odour of gasoline.


First check for fuel leaks. Be safe. Next I would pull the spark plugs and smell them for gas. If you smell gas on them, they are fouled out. Start with replacing them. Also check for spark. These are the two basics to check first. Spark and fuel. You have fuel because you can smell it.

1986 Toyota Camry turns over has spark smells like gas


Check for spark. Take a plug wire off a spark plug leaving the other end still attached to coil pack/distributer. Stick a screwdriver in the end. Holding the handle of the screwdriver keep the metal part a couple Millimetres off a section of metal while you get some one to turn it over. If it is really sunny it will be hard to see the spark. Do this one plug at at time so you don't get the wires mixed up.

What can cause a 1995 corcica to go dead and smell of gas


Check for leaking fuel lines or a puddle of gas under the car. If the exhaust smells like gas then the gas isn't burning completely and may be a number of things like spark plugs, plug wires, clogged air intake, fuel injector that stuck open...

2002 kia sedona will not start, new starter , sounds like not getting gas or maybe flooding any ideas


If you smell gas it is getting gas, if not check the fuel filter. Next thing to check is to see if there is a spark. Remove the spark plug from the engine. Have someone crank the engine with the spark plug grounded, see if there is a spark. Also check for the smell of gas in the spark plug hole.

Troy built 675 series will not start and has gas . Ive checked the spark plub connection and all is good .


have you checked the quality of the gas? is it old from last season? open the gas cap and smell the gas,does it smell like varnish? If your gas is bad it wont start because it has lost it"s flamability.also you don"t what to use old gas because it can damage your engine by causing your valves to stick or freeze up...If your gas is bad you need to drain your fuel tank and carb and replace it with fresh gas..You might want to go and get some fuel stabalizer at the auto store or wal mart and add it to you fuel can you use to fill you mower. That way your fuel will be good for up to a year when stabalizer is added to your gas..Have you checked for a spark at the spark plug? remove the spark plug from the motor, plug the spark plug back into the plug socket and lay the spark plug aganst the muffler, pull the pull start cord and look at the end of the spark plug for a bright blue spark. You might want to do this in the shade to be able to see it. If you don"t see a spark , i would try a new plug first and see..if still no spark then your ignition coil has gone bad,that is the whole unit from your spark plug wire to the coil..check these items first,,,

Car will not start bu,t will turn over can smell gas and ,it want to start more if the pedel is to the floor


sounds like its not firing right possible its your coil pack when you smell gas that means its flooded you might as well wait a while when you smell gas like that before you turn it over more but it could also be one more thing it could be you have a gas leak and its not getting enough gas but thats a slim chance
